    I have a book recommendation for you. “This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women”. There are different variations, (This I Believe on Love) but I think the one I mentioned is the one to go for. I have it as an audiobook and love it, I’ve even bought it as a gift. Not only is it insightful, but, I think it goes well with your list as well…and if you are motivated you can participate in the ‘This I Believe’ essay challenge…and be published!

    Add Watership Down to that list. I’ve read it at least 4 times.

      Thanks for the recommendation. I don’t think I’ve read that, but I remember some people having to read it in school. Might be what I read next.
