Thanks for all your input. Below is a list of geometry textbooks that
have been recommended as 'good'. These recommendations were based on
the book being targeted for high school honors/college level and one
that rigorously covers Euclidian geometry with the major emphasis on
formal proof. I am planning on reviewing all these books and will post
my biased opinion rating each book.

If you would like to add a book to the list, feel free!

Alan Sagan
