Inspired by helms-deep I decided to plug my blog into simple tumblr stats again and see where I am. Not surprising that I’m such a reblogger I’m off the charts as a curator, and somewhere down there I probably lean heavily towards the visual end.

And look at the awesome people crowding in the top nine (and ten)! Not surprised one bit.

Book List Thingy (Cause I Like Books)

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. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

  1. The Rain Catchers by Jean Thesman
  2. The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder
  3. On the Road by Jack Kerouac
  4. Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson
  5. The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper (full series, really)
  6. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
  7. I Know What You Did Last Summer by Lois Duncan
  8. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  9. My Only Story by Monica Wood
  10. Last Orders by Graham Swift

This list is in no particular order, I just listed the books as they came to me.  I’m certain after a few moments I’ll realize that I’ve missed some special favorites—yep, I have—but these ones came to mind, what can I say?  

Most of the people I would tag have already been tagged by jennhoney, so I’ll just add a few people that might not have been previously tagged.  I play no follower/followee favorites!  I love you all equally!
