50 Books to Read

Here I have grouped books including slave narratives, autobiographies of famous individuals, poetry from various places around the world, some on government/philosophy, and a few of the epic poems of the west. It is my hope that this list, short though it is, will have a bit of kick to it and be able to furnish the reader with options that will permit them to broaden their horizons.
