Here is a list.
It contains 100 climbing and mountaineering books.
Some are brilliant; some are not.
Some have won awards; some of them should have.
Some of them are only a year or two old; some were written over 100 years ago.
One of these books might make your top five; one of them might be the worst climbing book you've ever read - if you even finished it.
Most of the big names are here - Harrer, Simpson, McDonald, Roberts, Krakauer, Bonatti, Kirkpatrick, Moffat (and Moffatt) - and some not-so-big names.
Have a read, see what you think. And remember: it's just a list.
