Recommended Reads

Here are some books I've read that motivate me to spread the word. You'll find few contemporary books here simply because I don't read that many, and most books should withstand the test of time, whether it's a year or 100 years. I'm a slow reader and I read a lot of disposable books, like the kind of stuff I write. But occasionally I read something that sticks with me long after the final page.
