Books that Have Stayed with Me

For those of you who don’t know, I’m on Tumblr, and there’s an awful lot of tagging posts that pop up on my dashboard every day. When you tag someone, you’re asking and/or challenging them to most often share a list. Yesterday I was tagged to share ten books that have touched me in some way. I thought I’d share them here too. Some of these books made my cry, some terrified me, some enlightened me and some fed my soul. Several of these books I read a decade ago or more and I they still sit on my shelf. What ten books would be on your list?

    Solid list, WWP.

    • He has good tastes!! I loved that book. I think it was the first sign that I was going to be an artist. As odd as it may sound, I remember wanting to eat those colored spots. I loved the book just for the changing colors. LOL

      And Dune… Well. Enough said. Dune is on my top 15 list of favorites books too.
