Heh, good list! Do you like Beowulf? I wish we knew more about the culture it came from.

I've read all of these except the Bonhoeffer book. I've only read books about him.

I've only read one of the Narnia books, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I tried both Prince Caspian and The Voyage of The Dawn Treader, but couldn't get into them.

Recently, Lydia, there's a lot of information on Norse culture coming to the forefront lately.
