Wow, I haven't read any of the books on your lists so now I have lots more to think about. Thanks for sharing.

There are just so many books around that I'm not a bit surprised we found all different ones than what you have read. This was Gerard's idea to post our top 10. It was very difficult to just choose even 12 though.
