10 books

I've been challenged by Liz to identify "10 books that have stayed with you in some way". The instructions are, "Don't take more than a few minutes, and don't think too hard. They don't have to be the 'right' books or works of great literature, just ones that have affected you in some way."

Like many of my voracious-reader friends, I am listing several multi-volume series in my 10.

  • Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery (8 books)
  • Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis (7 books)
  • Zion Chronicles/Zion Covenant by Bodie Thoene (11 books)
  • Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
  • Harry Potter by JK Rowling (7 books)
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
  • The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews Edwards (Thanks, Mrs S!)
  • Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink
  • in Death series by JD Robb (48 books and counting)
  • and, of course, The Bible (66 books)

These are the off-the-top-of-my-head.  It wouldn't be a stretch to list a dozen in a dozen categories, from mysteries, to biographies, to set-your-head, to kid lit, to YA, to humor, to classics... one of the problems of this list is it's skewed by what I've seen on others' lists!
