First off, top 10 lists are stupid.

No really, because we all have our own and we all have strong opinions about them.

I pretty much made mine so that I could answer the question for the "question askers" WHAT BOOKS DO YOU RECOMMEND

So this is my answer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9htVD9xqtM

If you like it, you can clip and paste the URL and pass it along as an "easy reply"

If you don't want to watch the video - my list is....

Actually, multi-volume titles such as those listed are considered one monograph according to Library of Congress cataloguing guidelines. (I have 20 years experience working in academic libraries such as Penn State and yje University of Michigan).
