As writers it is always important to keep our minds fresh with new ideas, creative thoughts and an idea of how to string a story together. One way to do this is by reading work by other people.  If you have come across a book that you thought was absolutely amazing and everyone who is anyone should read it, add it to the list. You could create a brief summary on a wiki page with the books details.

See this example as a guideline: RR.nameofbook
Please add RR for Recommended Reading followed by the book name.

Then add the wiki link along with a brief summary as follows:
