GW's List of 5 Star Reads

I've read 1,000 books to date and listed them on Goodreads. Here are my only 5 star rated books. I love my Library and many of the books on the list have come from there. I started reading the Classics in high school, but really picked up the pace out of college. I'm a tough rater. The book has to be worthy and something I like to get top billing.
