Essential Books for Readers with Good Taste

This site collects some of the books that everyone should read (or at least everyone interested on the given topic).

Some are very old and hard to find, this collection is for convenience and reference. They are here either because dead tree editions are out of print and impossible to acquire, or because one can’t travel carrying a whole library with their favorite books.

All of them are essential, and as soon as you can you should buy a copy, as they deserve to be part of all personal (and public) libraries.

So, while not endorsing intellectual property, this site is not built with the intention of encouraging copyright infringement, because all the books here are important enough that should be owned in the medium that best suits them: dead tree format.
