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.

Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan. I agree with my esteemed friend in that this is not my favoritest of memes for reasons. I also believe that I've done this one before, and I'll probably list different books this time for other reasons.

1. Alice in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
2. The Stand - Stephen King
3. All of the Calvin and Hobbes comics collections - Bill Watterston
4. The Lions of Al-Rassan - Guy Gavriel Kay
5. A Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert A. Heinlein
6. The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell
7. Winnie-the-Pooh - A.A. Milne
8. The Spiral Staircase: My Climb Out of Darkness - Karen Armstrong
9. The Shadow of the Sun - Ryszard Kapuscinski
10. The Voyage of the Beagle - Charles Darwin

I'm going to leave off the tagging bit. I'm sure my flist will forgive me. :)
