Some Quaker books we think are important

This list was part of the handout at our interest group at FGC Gathering 2006. I'm too tired to make all the links. If one sounds interesting and you can't find it, let me know.

You are also welcome to add books or pamphlets that have inspired you to deeper Quakerism in the comments.
