Meme: Books!

I've stolen this from franztastisch (who stole it from tumblr) and my sister (who posted it on FB)....

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you.

So, in no particular order:
1. For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down by David Adams Richards
2. No Great Mischief by Alistair MacLeod
3. Hold on Geronimo by Marilyn Halvorson
4. Hamlet by William Shakespeare (though technically not a book as in "novel", I read it as though it were one the first time I encountered it.)
5. The Hatchet by Gary Paulson
6. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
7. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
8. My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George
9. Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare
10. Night by Elie Wiesel

So, interesting note: At least four novels in that list contain a plotline of "teenage boy must survive in the wilderness with limited supplies." It was a favourite genre of mine growing up, apparently. And the rest, except for HGTTG are horribly depressing.

Okay, I've procrastinated sleeping long enough - eventually I'm going to have to admit that I need to return to work tomorrow and doing so on even less sleep then I could have had is pretty stupid.
