it’s the top ten books challenge!

As soon as the ALS ice bucket challenge seemed to die down a bit, it seems like the top ten books challenge popped up in its place. I have absolutely NO problem with this, as I’m always looking for new books to read…or recommendations of things that I should re-read.

The rules of this “challenge” …more like a request… is for the person that has been tagged to write down 10 books off the top of their head that have stuck with them in some way. Here’s mine:

Franny and Zooey – Salinger; Prayer for Owen Meany – Irving; Steal like an Artist – Austin Kleon; World According to Garp – Irving; Geek Love – Katherine Dunn; Unbearable Lightness of Being – Milan Kundera; Breakfast of Champions – Kurt Vonnegut; Fight Club – Chuck Paulanuck; Dry – Augsten Burroughs; A Feast of Snakes – Harry Crews

These are in no particular order…just reached back as far as my mind could go and rallied through to the present.

What are you reading??

    Prayer for Owen Meany rates pretty high for me too! Favorite quote from Steal like an Artist?: Validation is for parking!!! As a kid I read Alas Babylon, by ? (who remembers authors as a kid?!?) 12 years old and I was reading teen lit about a post apocalyptic world…led me to teach my dog how to eat bugs so she could feed herself until she became a better hunter, when all us humans were dead…good times…BTW I STiLL want to be you when I grow up!!

    I have SO many books I want to read and you’ve just added to my list!!! Working seriously cuts into my literary time…GRRR. My current read is “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls” by David Sedaris. Truly, anything by David Sedaris is golden.
    Keep up the fabulous work, Erin. You have solved my Christmas shopping quandaries once again! Any family and friends that procreate get your “If you put me down” baby card (along with the book “Go the F*ck to Sleep”, I like themes.)
