Fifteen in Fifteen

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.  (I tag anyone that wants to do this.)

  1. Harry Potter and the ______ by J. K. Rowling (I figure it’s some kind of major cheat if I use all the books in all the series I’ve read)
  2. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams
  3. Lord of the Rings trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkein
  4. The Bible (though not all of it, and certainly not all at once)
  5. Myth series by Robert Aspirin
  6. Robot series by Isaac Asimov
  7. The Baby Book by William Sears (where Mary learns to trust herself — and sometimes even ignore the advice of Dr. Sears)
  8. The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
  9. All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot (and other of his country vet books)
  10. Giving by Bill Clinton
  11. Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka
  12. Young Wizard series by Diane Duane
  13. Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard Atwater (nobody said it mattered WHEN I read the books – just that it will always stick with me. I figure if I read a book when I was 10 and it still comes to mind, it’s stood the test of time)
  14. How to Survive the Loss of a Love by Peter McWilliams
  15. The Bible: Faith’s Family Album by Jack Good

(added note — Peter Davison played a vet in the TV series based on the Herriot books, and the “dish of the day” in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy BBC TV series so maybe I need to read some Margery Allingham)

(added added note — I like series — I like reading a book when the characters are somewhat familiar)
