Must-Have Books

This page started as a blog post. A pretty short blog post at that. But then I realized there are a lot of books out that that I want. So this page is devoted to the list of books I intend on buying or desperately desire. It will continue to morph over time as I cross books off the list. Which means you need to keep checking back to either make suggestions or find a new book to read for yourself!

  1. Good web site! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
