Reading list for learning about Buddhism, especially Theravada and traditional Buddhist Meditation?

Is there an official reading list somewhere, with all the texts recommended for studying Buddhism, Theravada and Buddhist meditation?

Thanks!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan

Thank you, bodom!

Perhaps it makes sense to put such a list on the wiki, so it can be edited and updated as necessary?
