Kristybee tagged me on facebook but I thought I would add it here too. I think I need to make a goal to blog everyday in July. I need to be a better blogger. =]
“Don’t take too long to think about it. List 15 books you’ve read that will always stick with you. Choose the first fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Tag 15 friends, including me.”
In no order:
1. The Man Who Ate the 747 by Ben Sherwood: Funny book. I read it years ago and I still chuckle.
2. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert: I simply adore memoirs and I love her time in Italy and the whole concept of the book really.
3. The Tenth Muse by Judith Jones: Another memoir of a great women, editor, cook, wife, you name it.
4. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: I can never decide which one I like best. I like them all…..well, I have not read them all yet but the ones I have read I like.
5. Collections of Poems by Williams Carlos Williams (both volumes): I seriously love the Danse Russe. It made me smile.
6. Letters Home by Silvia Plath: I think all people have crazy thoughts from time to time but when you share them they get worse. She was brilliant and certifiable. I loved reading her letters almost as much as her poetry. She made me laugh and then I felt so sad for her too. Her son lives in Alaska, well he did, he killed himself this passed winter.
7. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: I read inheritance too but did not like it as much as Little Women.
8. The Children’s Story by James Clavell: I could write a novel about this short book. It is crazy how short of time it takes to brainwash someone.
9. Pay it Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde: If you have not seen the movie or read the book, don’t see the movie and rush out and get the book.
10. Freedom Writers Diary by Freedom Writers: Sometimes it is good to see outside of your little world and be shocked by the world we really live in.
11. The Domain Book of Intuitive Home Design: How to Decorate Using Your Personality Type by Judy George: This book has saved me many times. I like a decorating style but it does not mean I will like it in my home. I would buy something and then hate it when I came home with it. Now I buy stuff that fit my personality.
12. The Color Code by Dr. Taylor Hartman: I love personality tests and this book has one of the best ones I have ever seen. A couple of years ago I took a job being a supervisor and it was tough. I had everyone take this test and it was much easier to do my job knowing who I was working with.
13. Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson: Sorry to add this book but it rocked my photography world. It is a must have for every photographer.
14. Grandma Slaughters Family Cookbook by “Our Family: We made this book for my husbands grandmother and technically it is a cookbook but it is full of stories that go along with the recipes and my family and I have a great time reading it.
15. The Scriptures: I had to add this because it is one of the books I remember all the time. I read it, not as much as I should, and a believe in it. So the list was not complete without it.
