Ten Things Tuesday

Actually, you get a 20 Things Tuesday.  You’ll see why in a minute.

Yesterday, a friend posted a “on your facebook wall, list ten books that have stayed with you” challenge.  These are the books I posted:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak

Native Son by Richard Wright

Illusions by Richard Bach

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum

Peace Like a River by Leif Enger

A Time to Kill by John Grisham

As soon as that post went up, my friend CV Rick found me on chat and engaged me in a conversation, which took all morning, about all the wonderful books that we’ve known.  Here, then, are ten MORE books that have stuck with me:

Beloved by Toni Morrison

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

The Prestige by Christopher Priest

Hamlet by William Shakespeare (yeah, yeah: I know it’s technically not a book.  So what?)

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

A Dry White Season by Andre Brink

Roots by Alex Haley

Wicked by Gregory Maguire

The Road by Cormac McCarthy
