    The Sorrows of Young Werther by Goethe

    German Romanticism at it's finest. Dark but so beautiful. Very NFP.

    Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

    A family saga and romance novel filled with wit and wisdom. It's about more than just Cathy and Heathcliff. Hands down one of my favorite books ever. Emily Bronte was an INFP.

    Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

    Russian Realism, gritty and satirical, a study of human nature, but also very darkly romantic and very NF.

    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

    Hilarious, crisp writing. The quintessential "comedy of manners." Just a pleasure to read.

    The Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller

    Banned in English speaking countries for 22 years, this lyrical, poetic, pornographic story is based on Miller's real life love affairs and his experiences living on the streets of Paris.

    also anything by F.Scott Fitzgerald for a social overview of the 1920s in the U.S., and Agatha Christie...she really is the queen of crime.

    Read "The Great Gatsby," the greatest American novel of last century and very relevant to the events of today's economic meltdown...

    If from all of our country's books I could have only one, "The Great Gatsby" would be it.

    So what's the bookcase thing online someone (orangeappled?) linked to before? I always forget what books I read, I want to start keeping track. Anyone?

    ^ There are several.

    I use the LivingSocial Books site because it links to my facebook & is easy for me to update.

    I also use GoodReads, which has a nice favorite quotes section also. I think the linked one was Shelfari (which has the look of an actual bookshelf). So you have your pick.
