The Library of Cary Heater

When visiting someone's home for the first time, it's a habit among book people to take a careful look at what is on the shelves.  It always gives a remarkably detailed insight to their personality and character.  I can't show you Cary's bookself but I can do something close.  Below you'll find a list of the books that Cary loved and reccomended over the years.  Jude compiled it and I've sorted them by author.  In the case of series, I've only listed the first novel but, generally, Cary tended to only suggest series titles that held up through their run.  I hope that you enjoy this peek into Cary's personality.
