Looking for some heavy reading or to become enlightened or obtained knowledge you might want to read my recommendations below.
For those looking for answers or just looking I recommend that you check out the following books.
These are not necessarily in the order in which you should read them. That is up to you. I find these books still helpful today and use them in my everyday life. Especially working with others. We are a country of many faiths and it takes understanding to narrow the gap. I must say there are two books that are not on this list that I have read but I would only say that you read them if you are strong in what you believe. You have to really be strong or these two books can be a real negative for you. So with caution I tell you the name of these books. “The Satanic Bible” and “The Witches Bible.”

I will add a few more when I can find them. And yes, I have read each and every one of these books. In fact some of these selections more than once, hazard of getting old. You have to refresh your memory.
I have actually read the Bible twenty six times from cover to cover in more than one version. There are those who say no one has ever done this. I say they are crazy however; My Father read the King James Bible from Cover to Cover seven times and could recite each and every scripture without looking. I did not inherit the ability to remember as well as he could.
Thank You and Happy Reading
