Books we Love

During one of our forum talks in the early days, we started talking about the books that we thought a well-read person should read.  This is a result of that talk.

I have listed them in alphabetical order, and thanks to MaryZee, there are no duplicates.

This is not a complete list, nor is it an official list.  It is simply a fun list from some of the most avid readers in the universe.
