What books should a person must have had read to look smart?

Anonymous
I've had a very unfortunate life, and I am avoiding people at all costs because I don't know what to tell them or talk with them if they ask me something. I always talk gibberish when that happens and I embarrass myself in front of everybody, it literally kills me. I am not really much interested in reading books, it is honest truth but I am willing to do it to look normal, or to have something to talk about when I am around people. Which writers and books considered most important in everyone's eyes? I am quite interested in literature and philosophy actually..
