The List

The complete list of books read by the Brothers.  Those that are reviewed or replied to will be linked.

Recommended books are those that the Brothers enjoyed and would gladly recommend to their family and friends. In Dispute are those that did not impress, especially in contrast to popular opinion. You’ll also find those books were the Brothers have opposing views. Lastly you will find the books with the DNF tag, which stands for Did Not Finish. Not Recommended books are those that the Brothers can not, in good conscience, encourage to be read. Please read the reviews and contemplate seriously before attempting……And then come tell us how you did, good or bad.
