This is the best I can do narrowing it down. Please suggest any books that should be omitted from this list... I'm not good at rejecting books, especially considering I've never even read any of them. I'm kind of tied to my two books, but I've never read them, so I don't want you guys to be forced to read them if they're not good. Greenflute, Ms. Assertive, please help me narrow down the list!!!
