message 1: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Wetta I only chose ten books to start this list. Let anyone who has had their view of the world or their outlook on life changed by books list them here. List from the heart!


message 2: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Wetta Okay, folks, I know that in the real world across a wide range of voters, my novel would not be anywhere near the top of this list! That would imply that people have read it! Maybe in a year or two! I added a couple more books to the list, hoping to renew some interest in the list. Please add and vote. What books do you believe will change a person's view of the world? Let's make a list that will change the world!

Christine I'm looking for Beta Listeners to test the Audiobook edition of my novel Irish Firebrands. Chapters are delivered free via e-mail, in m4b format (compatible with iTunes and other players).
