15 in 15

“This can be a quick one. Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.”

I found this on a friend's blog today. It made me think - for about 15 minutes!! That's hard to do in the summer...I'm on vacation -NO THINKING! It was fun to wrack my brain for a minute or two to ponder books that impacted me in one or another. Just remembering the titles was like looking at a scrapbook!

Here goes:

1. Book of Mormon
2. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
3. Mutant Message Down Under by Marlo Morgan
4. The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler
5. Tell No One by Harlan Coban
6. The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart
7. Winter Wheat by Mildred Walker
8. Oh, Pioneers by Willa Cather
9. Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
10. The Giver by Lois Lowry
11. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
12. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
13. Celia Garth by Gweneth Bristow
14. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
15. Pride and Predjudice by Jane Austen

Just to think that I'm a different person because of the impact of the printed words in these books. Wow! Ah, the impact of the written word!
