10 Books That Had an Impact on my Life


I have so much to write about.  Phoebe turned 14 years old yesterday!  I haven't downloaded the pictures yet, so that post is yet to come.  However, I was tagged today on Facebook to list the 10 books that had the most impact on my life.  I've been wanting to do this for awhile, so I'm going to post it here too with some additions.  I've been wondering if I should do the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.  I've read quite a few of these already.  However, right now I'm trying to finish reading "Getting Things Done" by David Allen.  Good book so far.
  • Dune - Frank Herbert
  • Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
  • Emma - Jane Austen
  • Scarlett - Alexandra Ripley
  • The Godfather - Mario Puzo
  • The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis
  • Bridget Jones Diary - Helen Fielding (I've loved her other two following Bridget Jones books too!)
  • The Joy Luck Club - Amy Tan
  • Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
Bonus additions:
  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - Robert Pirsig
  • The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath
  • Great Expectations - Charles Dickens
  • The Once and Future King - T.H. White

Excellent books - I have actually read quite a few - more than half. I have been wondering if "Zen and the art..." will be the same if I read it now and if it is one of those that date
