sh scripting question

	I have a file ("files.list") with a list of filenames, similar to

	/path A/path B/FreeBSD is great.txt

	(note the embedded spaces)
	If I use

	for FILE in `cat files.list`

	FILE will be set to "/path".
	How do I get it to read the entire string?
	Or am I using the wrong tool?
