Tiny Library

On my bike ride home Thursday, I spotted one of those Tiny Libraries, south of the intersection of Hattie Avenue and 5th Street/CdA. I stopped long enough to check out some of the authors -- and to see if there was something I might check out. Joseph Wambaugh, Herman Wouk and Janet Evanovich were among the 15 to 20 authors behind the glass case. Sherman Alexie's "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fist Fight in Heaven." I didn't see anything that interested me. (BTW, I'm currently reading Justin Cronin's "The City of Mirrors," the third book of his vampire trilogy.) However, I thought the idea of the Little Library in that area of town was swell. I applaud the individual behind the Little Library. As I biked off, I thought about books that I might share with the Little Library.

Question: If you were to start a little library in your neighborhood, which three books would you make sure were part of it?
