15 Books

I'm tired and torn between being deleriously happy and deleriously weepy that we're finished, so you're getting a meme.

Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes in no particular order. Tag 15 friends, including me because I'm interested in seeing your fifteen too.

1.) Rebecca, Daphne DuMaurier
2.) Castles in the Air, Judy Corbett
3.) Emma Brown, Claire Boyland
4.) Betsy's Wedding, Maud Hart Lovelace
5.) The Historian, Elizabeth Kostova
6.) Bridget Jones' Diary, Helen Fielding
7.) Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte
8.) Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell
9.) War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy
10.) The Nine, Jeffrey Toobin
11.) Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte
12.) Bleak House, Charles Dickens
13.) Les Miserables, Victor Hugo
14.) The Count of Monte Cristo (authentic 1500-page version), Alexander Dumas
15.) Seabiscuit, Laura Hillenbrand

Without Betsy's Wedding there would have been no Betsy and Tacy -and no Tib - and there would have been no absolutely perfect day in Mankato...books add SO much to life!!!!:) (But I knew that you understood that the first time that you fell down because you were reading while you walked - or when War and Peace fell into Lake Michigan because you were reading it for fun when we went out on the boat - or when you gave up Nancy Drew for Lent and then would wake up at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings to start reading...) I'd say you were hooked....(I do not see my Hound of the Baskervilles on your list - but I really enjoyed your recommendation of The Nine...)
