Good Books

This is not, by any means, an exhaustive “recommended reading” list. That list, the “must read” list, is different, far longer, and not necessarily inclusive of all the titles listed here. I'm working on it and perhaps–someday–it will be so well organized as to be able to be shared as well. The following is simply a collection of some of my absolute favorites across varying ages and genres. Enjoy!
