Top 100 Catholic books of all time

Does anyone know of one? If you were going to make one, what would you for sure put on it?

The Art of Natural Family Planning by John and Sheila Kippley.

Confessions by St. Augustine

Both of these are on the list by Fr. Schall which I am trying to read (his list in Another Sort of Learning - I am taking as a long-term reading project).

I am working my way through St. Augustine, but I am frequently struck by how modern some of his concerns are.

The Art of NFP (the one actually written by the Kippleys) is I think the most comprehensive modern compendium of what one needs to know about natural family planning - including ecological breastfeeding, an integral part of it, and the covenant theology of marriage (which was understandable even before the Theology of the Body became accessible to lay folks.)
