    Yes, I second The Sorrows of Young Werther. and A Confederacy of Dunces.

    English Romanticism, in general, including Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

    Margaret Atwood's Cat's Eye (for the Fi-Si) would very much appeal to INFPs.

    Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, too.

    Madame Bovary!
    Tipping The Velvet!



    Jacob Have I Loved (it's a young adult novel)
    Phantom Tollbooth
    The Namesake

    the short story collection by jeanette winterson

    Tipping the Velvet *is* a good book.

    I actually like the other books you mention here, too.

    I wanted to add that I love horror and mystery genre fiction, but I don't know how NF that actually would be.

    I agree that Twilight is YE GODS awful, and Harry Potter got boring to me after the second book.

    He was in a sanitarium for a number of years, so that contributed to a warped view of reality. The only part I found tedious was the sheer length of the book and the many many characters (all with 3-4 names and numerous nicknames oh dear god so hard to keep track of).

    Am really enjoying Wally Lamb's I Know This Much Is True right now.

    Don't question why she needs to be so free
    She'll tell you it's the only way to be
    She just can't be chained to a
    Life where nothing's gained
    and nothing's lost
    at such a cost

    the Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby.

    Tales of overcoming inspire me greatly.

    Thank you to everyone who has added to my already extensive library list.

    I completely agree with the Gaiman books. American Gods was great. Another book that I enjoyed along that same vein and didn't see in another post was The Holy by Daniel Quinn. I really liked that.

    I also enjoyed The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. That is a must for any NF (or anyone really) It's a children's book but it's beautiful.

    Yes, I take it with no cream and no sugar.

    And yes, some of us drink it bitter.
