But I liked this one and couldn't resist taking a moment to think:
Don't take too long to think about it.
Fifteen books you have read that will always stick with you.
First fifteen you can recall in no more than a few minutes.
Copy the instructions into your own post.
This is what I came up with (who knows how clearly I'm thinking right now) at John's LJ - I may be well educated but I'm not an academic *g* ...definitely an eclectic list - but also books I return to again and again for various reasons.
The Testament by John Grisham
The Bible by Various *g*
Campbell's Kingdom by Hammond Innes
Perfect Skin by Nick Earls
A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth
Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum
The Eucharist and the hunger of the world by Monika Hellwig
Just Shy of Harmony by Phil Gulley
The Golden Rendezvous and The Satan Bug by Alistair MacLean
I heard the owl call my name by Margaret Craven
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
The Bone People by Keri Hulme
*sigh* I love a good book to read. I really do.
