TBR Book List

I’ve collected a list of recommended titles and those I only half appreciated on the first read, hoping to offer them my full attention with another run.  Admittedly, this is heavy on the classics, perhaps Irish authors, and probably contains a fair number of contemporary holes. If something worthwhile is missing, please suggest it for the manifesto.  In regard to some of these titles, I’m not under any illusion they are the best written, but they may spark a memory, a feeling, or simply my curiosity. Good thing I’m relatively young…I really want to get to all of these before I die.
