Late last summer there was a post going around Facebook that asked you to pick ten books that had stayed with you or had an effect on you in some way, and then tag ten friends to do the same.
Lists + books are just the kind of nerdy thing I love, so I was excited when I was tagged. Here are the ten I chose:
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
The Gold Coast by Nelson Demille
Ordinary People by Judith Guest
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow
The Big Short by Michael Lewis
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
You were not supposed to think too long or hard about your list, or worry about if they’re the “right” books or not.
Have you ever made a list like this? What book or books have stayed with you in some way?
