    Great list of books!Some good titles there for me to consider adding to my list of “Books Every Christian Should Read” that I have on my site. I love that you include classic fiction; here are a few I would suggest adding: “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. Check out the other titles I have on my list (which I have divided into Non-Fiction, Fiction, and History & Biography)!

      Thanks for the suggestions. I started reading Jane Eyre a while back but did not finish it. I think I’ll go back to it again.

  2. Have you tried Goodreads?

    1. Dayo Adewoye says:
