• Greenockle's Green List
     
    Here is a list of books that I recommend for those who are either avid readers or are simply looking for a good book to read.  Trust me, these are only books that I give my "seal of approval" on; that is, those books that will challenge you intellectually.
                   Remember that books can't substitute life....
