Egypt technically should not be up there merely because I haven't completed much of Egypt's History, Mythology, and Literature. Again, Egypt is also in progress, but my purpose for putting that up is to emphasize how important I consider these works. The Iliad is not up there yet because I am nowhere near close to finishing it, and that also goes for Greek Mythology.
All of these books and more will be read in good time. The idea is this will show people what I have read and possibly what may have influenced me. This list shall continue therefore, to grow and grow and expand into a full fledged cannon as time goes on. I hope those who read it will take these suggestions and read these authors. I value every work on here as a book that I hold dear to my heart, (Except Tolkien). I hope this will encourage literacy among all people. Enjoy reading.
