I found an article online (link is listed at the bottom of this article). There is one book on this whole list that I’ve read and it wasn’t out in my 20s. There is another one on here that I’ve heard of and I’m a little interested in reading. However, I’ve not heard of most of the books on this list. I’ll have to do some more digging into some of these books before I go out and purchase them or borrow them from my local library. What do you think of the books on this list….?
