So a very dear friend and I are starting a book list. We have come to the conclusion that as bibliophiles, we have been unable to find a satisfactory “Top 100 Books You Must Read to Be Considered Well-Read” list. Some of the lists have most of the books we believe should be included and then fall by the wayside. So we are making our own. And then tackling all the books on it, that we haven’t yet read. Now keep in mind, it’s tough to not out all our personal favorites on there. But since mine would be loaded with Ayn Rand and his with Russian History, we’d bore the rest of the world. How about you, bloggers? What are your top 5 essential books? Help us out!
