Ten books…

If you’re on face book you will have received this sort of things, you get tagged by a friend and asked to give a list of something; usually I pay no attention, but today my son sent me this:

Rules: In your status line, list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than 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. Tag 10 friends, including me, so I’ll see your list.

  1. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy – John le Carré
  2. The Triffids – John Wyndham
  3. Wuthering Heights – Emily Brontë
  4. Game of Thrones – George R.R. Martin
  5. Whispers Underground – Ben Aaronovitch
  6. Miss Smilla’s Feeling For Snow – Peter Hoeg
  7. Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson
  8. Catch 22 – Joseph Heller
  9. Winnie-the-Pooh – A.A. Milne
  10. Daybreak – Viktor Arnar Ingólfsson

I didn’t think hard, I just wrote down whatever came into my mind! So this isn’t a list of the best book I’ve eve read, but maybe they are my favourites; however no doubt I will think of half a dozen more I should have put on the list!
