Fifteen Books That Have Stayed With Me

You may have seen this fun book meme floating around the blogs, facebook and other social networking sites. It's my understanding that you're not supposed to take a long time to come up with your list. Off the top of my head, here's the fifteen books that, for one reason or another made an impression on me and stuck with me. it doesn't mean they all are my favorites, just that they are memorable to me. Here they are, obviously, in no particular order.

If you'd like to participate, or have participated in this meme, leave a comment with the link and I'll include it in mine. It's interesting to see the different answers eveyone has. What books have stayed with you?


  1. I have only read 4 off of your list! I need to expand my horizons...

  2. I don't know how you managed to keep your list to 15 books, but you did a great job! I've read 7 of the 15.

  3. I've only read about 4 off of your list also...still working on The Bible though. I remember your review of In Cold Blood and I actually just picked that one up at the Goodwill yesterday.

  4. You've got some really good ones there Lisa. I've read about 7 of them. To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my absolute favorites. I may have to reread it one day soon.

  5. I read In Cold Blood when I was alone babysitting (a million years ago) and I still remember how scared I got, and what a deep impact it made on me! I'm still scared from it, in fact!!!

  6. I might give this one a try tomorrow. My brain is too tired tonight. But I've read 7 of them!!! Great list!
