“List fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you, for whatever reason. Make sure it’s the first fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.”

Tagged by Nerves Strengthened with Tea. I’m interested that my list contains much more non-fiction than either her list or adventures in bibliotherapy. Luckily, none of us is at all interested in speculating on the importance of gender in determining cultural significance.

The fact that I’m going to order my list (alphabetically) doubtless tells us nothing either.

(frankly I think that the directions given are incompatible, so I’m just going with part 1)

  • Animal Farm – George Orwell
  • A Season With Verona – Tim Parks
  • Bad Science – Ben Goldacre
  • Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat – Bill Watterson
  • How to be an Alien – George Mikes
  • Middlemarch – George Eliot
  • Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
  • The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy
  • The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
  • The First Casualty – Phillip Knightley
  • The Plot Against America – Philip Roth
  • The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers – Paul Kennedy
  • The Silence of the Sea – Vercors
  • The Summer Book – Tove Jansson
  • Winnie the Pooh – A.A. Milne

  3. Well, being as we both did English Literature at University while you did History, it might have something to do with that.
