What are the free banking book classics?

Welcome everyone to the free banking blog.  I'm very excited about the stellar cast we have, and I hope this space will become a clearing house for information from different scholars and groups.  In addition, as it grows, this page should become a great resource of information.  With that in mind, I'm looking for suggestions for a reading list on the subject.

Similarly, what are links to other groups that should be added to page?
