Anton Chekhov has been described as one of the most influential writers of all time. His work is still studied in minute detail by academics and dramatists.
This is a non-fiction piece of work that makes for a great read. The story takes us on the journey of Ivan Dmitrtich and his wife. Mrs. Dmitritch is halfway through reading that day’s winning lottery numbers when she realises they’ve won. The couple quickly get to work dreaming about all the things they’d do with their life-changing windfall.
During their time of fantasy, the couple starts to grow suspicious of one another, even resentful. Neither wants the other to be so financially well off.
Finally, Ivan glances at the lottery ticket and it dawns on him that they don’t have the final number right. Excitement and animosity both fade instantly and the couple return to their humdrum yet peaceful existence.
It’s a classic read that most of us can relate to. After all, how often do you daydream about spending your future winnings?
We had to include Roald Dahl’s most decorated piece of literature. It’s a story most of us have read at some point.
The journey begins when one lucky little boy, Charlie, wins a golden ticket and the chance to tour the world’s most mystical chocolate factory.
The factory is run by confectionary kingpin and highly eccentric character, Willie Wonka. Wonka ran a rather specific kind of lottery. The golden tickets were hidden inside Wonka bars. Charlie's chances were likely one in millions – just like Powerball!
But, the little boy from a humble background beat those odds and went on one crazy, exciting adventure.
Once you’ve read these five books, we bet you’ll be dreaming about how to spend your next windfall.
After all, armed with the statistics, the math and some figurative fun ways to splash the cash, you’re sure to be a winner, right?
