Federal authorities found a handwritten list of those books in the Fort Worth home of David Barouch last week during a search after he became a suspect.
Authorities also found 30 to 35 firearms that belonged to Barouch, who is an avid hunter, according to testimony during his detention hearing Tuesday.
Barouch, 51, was ordered by a federal magistrate to remain behind bars.
