Personal Canon #1

I really love Buster Benson‘s codex vitae project.
I haven’t had the time to put down on paper everything that he has. But I thought I’d at least start with a list of books that I read over and over again. A personal canon. Desert Island Discs, but for books.
I’ve tried to limit it to an amount I could feasibly carry. And over time, I’ll swap in/out and evolve the list.
