book meme @ 06:52 am

Tags: ,

4 months after tagging Prime with it on Facebook, he tags me back with a mutated version of it. The number of books has increased by 5 (though no more time is allowed), so my answers will be that much less thoughtful. And I'll jump the virus from FB to LJ.

Rules (but let's think of these as guidelines that may or may not choose to follow): 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...

1. LotR
2. Hyperion by Dan Simmons
3. Thomas Covenant series
4. Name of the Rose
5. Consciousness Explained by Dan Dennett
6. Gödel, Escher, Bach
7. Case of Charles Dexter Ward by HPL
8. A Clockwork Orange
9. Guns, Germs & Steel
10. Canticle for Liebowitz
11. Ender's Game
12. Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser series
13. The Ceremonies by TED Klein
14. Dreams Underfoot by de Lint
15. Connections by James Burke

G,G, &S is another great one. Probably one of the earliest times I found history to be an interesting subject. When you explain the past with science--modeling forces and trends and using data--it's awesome!
