Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

  1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Steven Chbosky
  2. His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
  3. The Complete Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson
  4. The First Born of the Dead by WJ Dickson
  5. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
  6. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  7. The City and the City by China Miéville

  10. The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger

Tagging nethenclawpuff, rhube, lokifan, cwena and venerablehomeboy and anyone else who wants to :)

:D I have done this one before, but I liked it.

I hope it’s OK to just paste the same answers over. I’m not sure I have the brain to rethink it atm, and the answers are almost certainly the same - hopefully interesting to ppl who missed it the first time round:

  1. The Dark Tower (we’re considering it one book so that three slots aren’t all the same story*) - Stephen King
  2. A Wizard of Earthsea - Ursula Le Guin
  3. Dragonsong - Anne McCaffrey
  4. A Room of One’s Own - Virginia Woolf
  5. Last Chance to See - Douglas Adams
  6. Meditations on First Philosophy - Rene Descartes
  7. Existentialism is a Humanism - Jean Paul Sartre
  8. On Liberty - John Stuart Mill
  9. Fool’s Fate - Robin Hobb
  10. Wild Swans - Jung Chang

I hereby tag (only if they wanna do it) sophiamcdougall, ultharkitty, tamthewriter, jessicameats, and lauraroselam .

*Yes, I know there are seven volumes, but it was the first three that really exploded my teenage mind. Love Vol. 4 as well, but it missed out on a few years of really intense teenage obsession.

Congrats, we have reached a period of time where there is a generation that does not remember the first memes.
