Markd9528 Asks "Are These Books Worth Reading?"

These are works that I came across while completing other challenges. I took note of them because they are unread books that are either:
--- by favourite authors
--- commonly listed
--- quite short (most are <200 pages)
--- interesting sounding (at least the title is)
In fact most of them fulfil two or more of the above criteria.
