Over on tumblr, there’s a meme floating around that asks each participant to list ten books that have affected or stuck with the writer in some way, and to explain what it is and why. It’s definitely one of the more labor intensive memes out there, but I will go to strenuous effort to avoid doing work, and it ended up being surprisingly rewarding. I liked it enough that I wanted to include the list here as well.
So here we are: 10 books that were important to me for various reasons, in no particular order other than my own circuitous thought patterns. Since this isn’t tumblr, I won’t bother tagging anyone, but it would be great if you could share your important books in the comments, or on your own blog.
