Welcome to my list. Since compiling this list, I have read almost no disappointing books.I queried friends, business assoc, and random people with whom I find myself in discussion. I request the names of their favorite 5 books.I request up to 5 fiction, non-fic, biz, and Relig/Phil. I take what they will give me and record them here.Feel free to ignore Bold, Italics, and Underlining.  They are simply tools for me to track purchases and reads.Asterisks denote books that were particularly impressive or moving to me.I hope this may be helpful to you and guide you to reads that alter your life. It has done tht for me.  Enjoy.I would love to see your list. Email me at doddshayden@gmail.com.
