"I decided to compile my own (somewhat eclectic) list of novels I think are amazing and essential to every library......It's one man's reading list — a writer, a book lover, a lover and a dad, but one man nonetheless." (Recommended)

(The Hobbit/The Lord of the Rings pair was subsumed into one item on the list.)
