10 Books That Have Stayed With Me

A low-intensity Facebook meme is going around, asking people to share ten of their favorite books.  Here's what I posted two days ago, with Amazon (mostly Kindle) links added here.

In your status line, list ten 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, "right" or "great" books, just the ones that have touched you. Tag five or more friends including me, so I can see your list.
