11. Brontë - Jane Eyre
Finally time to read this classic, and it was so much worth it. In a way ahead of time, and Jane was such a strong and lucky character. :)

12. Gurnall - The Christian In Complete Armour
The 'so heavy you could hurt someone throwing this'-size kind of a book. Very thorough - and over 1200 pages long - study of the 'Christian Armour' story taken from one of Paul's letters. A lot to read but worth it.

13. Ellsberg - The Saints' Guide To Happiness: Practical Lessons In The Life Of The Spirit
This is also very much worth reading. Light in mood and really helpful.

14. Burroughs - The Rare Jewel Of Christian Contentment
Similar in style to the Gurnall book on how to reach this Contentment.

15. Dogen - A Primer Of Soto Zen (borrowed from parents)
Some useful stuff, but in the end not worth keeping (and my parents had put it in the 'take to the library' pile, where I put it back after reading).

16. DeLeón - The Names Of Christ (English translation)
Underrated Renaissance Spain classic, with profound study of various names, like bud, shepherd, Prince of Peace and even his name, Jesus. If one is in any way interested on this subject (or the man), one should get this.

17. St. Albert The Great - On Cleaving To God (English translation)
Very short, not necessarily essential, but worth at least reading through once :)

18. Anonymous - The Way Of A Pilgrim (English translation)
Very good story involving the subject of Jesus Prayer and some stories from the main person's journeying around.

19. Singer - The Life You Can Save: How To Do Your Part To End World Poverty
On why one should give, who should one give to, and how much. Very convincing IMO.

20. Conze (transl.) - Buddhist Wisdom: The Diamond Sutra & The Heart Sutra
Well, I wanted to read these sutras... but they gave me nothing. The explanations opened the text much, but I gained nothing or at least nothing new. But it's good to know. *nods*
