Good grief. I'm exhausted just reading teh list.

What did you think of Buechner? I've read a couple of his autobiographies and find him riveting.

This is an impressive list. I like bibliophiles because they show each other that there are a great many books in the world that they've never heard of. I consider myself well-read and the only book I've read on your list is C.S. Lewis' A Grief Observed.
