Book Suggestions List
- A list of works is also available in: French
This is a list of works which have been suggested for reading; they have mostly been collected from the Book Suggestions thread.
If you know that something has been suggested but isn’t on the list, please add it, or ask someone else to. Similarly, if you know that one of these has actually been taken on for reading, please delete it from the list or mention it in the book's thread for someone else to delete.
If a work has more than one author, please make an entry in the list for each author. Remember to remove all the authors if you're removing something from the list.
Because of the number of suggestions, the entries for named authors have been broken down into a number of alphabetical sections:

Book of Mormon [? PD status]
