This reading list represents a work in progress that began many years ago.  As I’ve traveled through life and meet interesting people, I often ask them their favorite reading.  Based on the number of times a work is mentioned, the strength of the recommender’s conviction and my own judgment, I have prioritized this into three categories:

A = Must Read

B = Should Read

C = Recommended Reading


Special thanks to Tom Hambury, Kin Cosner and Ken Dzugan for their interest in this project.  I have also drawn on the work of Everyman’s Library, Max Adler and Carl Van Doren in this process.


Good reading!
