Hewitt's 30 Must Reads

Hugh Hewitt in his Wednesday third hour had a discussion on the 30 books everyone should read:

And so I conspired with David Allen White, professor extraordinaire at the United States Naval Academy, where he’s been teaching Shakespeare and other matters to the mid-shipmen for more than a quarter century, and John Mark Reynolds, professor of philosophy at Biola University, and the head of the Torrey Honors program there, to put together a reading list, and it’s the top 30 books that every one of you ought to have read, and certainly freshmen and sophomores ought to have read.

The full transcript is here and the audio here. It's embarrassing how few I've read but I bet confidently that I'm the only SSJ alum who's read Boethius (just a treatise on the Trinity, not the work discussed on HH, The Consolation of Philosophy).
