Hi Carol,

Marielouise responded from personal experience which is the best in
my opinion, but I thought you might also find this list interesting to
scan from one of the T2T FAQ:

   Math Books Recommended by Mr. Brandenburg

The real reason I recommend looking at it is because he includes 
annotations that help you know at a glance what the book is about.
Looking through it can also stir memories!

Some of my favorites from his list include:
   The Joy of Pi
   all of Keith Devlin's books
   The Number Devil
   all of Theoni Pappas' books
   How to Solve It

>I am compiling a list of great books that should be in every high school
>math classroom. Do you have any suggestions?
