10 Books that had an impact on me

Over on Facebook a friend challenged me to list 10 books that had an impact on my life. I figured I should share them on Tumblr as well. So in no special order (and limiting it to one book per author), here they are:

  1. Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh
  2. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking-glass by Lewis Carroll 
  3. Doctor No by Ian Fleming
  4. The Tango Briefing by Adam Hall 
  5. A Empire of their Own by Neil Gabler
  6. On Writing Well by William Zinsser
  7. D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths by Ingri and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire
  8. Thieves’ Picnic (AKA The Saint Bids Diamonds) by Leslie Charteris
  9. The Boy Who Could Make Himself Disappear by Kin Platt 
  10. The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

And a weird honorable mention for No. 11: Corvette Summer by Wayland Drew
