Ah, there's a subject: what works of great literature did we read
merely because they were referenced in an SF book?
*** Oh, I can play that one. Spenser's _The Faerie Queene_, in full,
because it was referenced in _The Incomplete Enchanter_.
At age 15, mind you.
Also, _The Confessions of St. Augustine_ because they were referenced in
some Dorothy Sayers novel or another -- it was being read by Peter's
future brother-in-law, iirc.
