Start with what you have

"The Young Man's Best Companion, The Farrier's Sure Guide, The Veterinary Surgeon, Paradise Lost, The Pilgrim's Progress, Robinson Crusoe, Ash's Dictionary, and Walkingame's Arithmetic, constituted his library; and though a limited series, it was one form which he had acquired more sound information by diligent perusal than many a man of opportunities has done from yards of laden shelves."
 From Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy.
