None of these books can hurt you, all of them can give you something worthwhile to think about, and all have some kind of merit. And if you read any of them on your own, and write me a couple of pages discussing what you got out of the experience, you'll earn extra credit. ONE REQUIREMENT: get parental permission to read a book from this list. That way, everyone is okay with what you're doing, and your parents can be proud of your initiative. Okay, hit the books.
