A student recently made the mistake of asking me for a reading list comprised of the most important books I’ve read. Joke’s on me, I guess, as I thought it would be easy. The list kept growing the more and more I thought about it! After winnowing down the numbers, here are the books I’d have to save in case of a fire. I hope my house never burns down!
If you know me personally, you can probably guess why certain books appear here and why they’re categorized a certain way. If you’re interested in the reasoning behind each, just ask.
Anyway, were is the list, categorized and in no particular order. Love some of these books or want to add some? Let us know in the comments!
