My Personal Cancer Journey — Top 100 (or so) Novels, 1-10

We who are near the end of our lives are frequently asked to give advice to younger folks about life. Since reading has been an important part of my life, I have decided that I would share my top books with my readers. Beginning with novels (my favorite genre), I will list my top 100 (or so) of all time. For brevity sake I will list them in groups of ten, arranged alphabetically by author. Let me know if you agree or disagree with my selections. Enjoy!
