Self Education Through Books

A list of various books from ancient times to more recent times comprising volumes ranging from poetic epics, novels, biographies/autobiographies, philosophy, law, some mathematics, government, essays from a few places, and other topics. A person cannot get a full education for any one thing via books, but this list of books should provide a good enough place to start for those desiring to give themselves a self-education of sorts. Though no list is ever perfect or all-encompassing. May it prove useful to others is my sincerest hope.
