Books to Read

Books to Read:
In no particular order are all of the books I need to read.  I'm not the greatest at math, but I will give it my best shot.  There is at least 110 books listed below.  If, I want to meet my goal of reading all of them in 1 year, that requires me to read 9 per month.  If I extend my goal to 2 years, that brings down the monthly requirement to 4 books.  I am in a crazy-go-for-it kind of mood, and still want to attempt the 1 year goal.  That means I better pick out some books and get to reading.
