Well...I love anything by Alexandre Dumas too, and whenever there's a movie 
that comes out based on one of his books I have to watch it too...I just 
love the swordfighting. :)   There are too many books to think of, though a 
really great one that I just read recently and has made quite an impact on 
how I live my life is 'No Logo' by Naomi Klein.  Thought I'd share that 
cause it's one of those books that Oils fans might find interesting as it 
talks about consumerism, branding and greed in corporate America.  Just made 
me think of the Oils when I was reading it.

After seeing the limited response to the release of Willie's I started 
wondering if perhaps, Workers were not much book people.
Therefore I'd be curious to hear the following:
Name up to 5 books that remain pillars in your literary life.
I'll start, in no particular order (and this is far from exhaustive):

Malevil, Robert Merle
The Lord of the rings (20 years before it became a movie)
Atlas shrugged, Ayn Rand
Jitterbug perfume, Tom Robbins
Anything by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Anything by Alexandre Dumas
