More Books!

Informative books are great, but I need inspiration, too.
Below are some of the works to which I turn when motivation, comfort or fresh purpose is needed.
Rather than attempting to differentiate between books wholly intended for pleasure and those intended to prompt us into new explorations, I have made a list of the books from my own shelves that do both!
