bestwork

I have a lot of books. At least to me it seems like a lot.

This page is my list of "favorite" books--the books that have inspired me most or that I find myself reading or referring to again and again. They are in no particular order. Someday I may add reviews/synopses for the books, but for now it's just a list.

Books that are so good that I'm always re-reading them...
