Recommended Book Lists

I decided to compile a nice list of all the book recommendations I have seen in a few posts on this site (My contribution to such a great site). This list was mainly from http://www.sailnet.com/forums/genera...d-reading.html that is on sticky.
I didn't want to just add this to the exiting post as it would just get buried and most people may never see this.

I will try to keep the list updated as people post more recommendations. I will follow the above post and if anyone sends me some in private message.
Also, if anyone finds any problems in the list let me know and I will correct it. I tried to do my best to make sure duplicates were removed and information was correct. Published dates may be a bit off, since many of the books listed multiple dates.

I wish I could make the formatting better to read, it looks real nice in Word, but the format wouldn't transfer.

I created some generalized categories for the books:
1) Sailing related - General Sailing
2) Sailing related - Non-Fiction
3) Sailing related - Fiction
4) Sailing Series
5) Non-Sailing - Non-Fiction
6) Non-sailing - Fiction
7) Non-Sailing Series
8) Recommended Authors
