I’m cheating a bit on this post because it’s so late and I don’t have much time to make the NaBloPoMo deadline, but I’m a sucker for this kind of thing anyway.
Yesterday a Facebook friend invited me to do the following:
The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. 15 books that influence you or will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can think of in 15 minutes. Tag at least 15 friends, including me, because I am interested in seeing what books my friends choose. Copy the rules, list 15 books and tag 15 friends.
I produced the following list (many of which I blogged about before here), and I was so disappointed that only one of my friends joined in! Feel free to join in yourself in the comments if you wish.
1. The Lords of Discipline (my favorite book by my favorite fiction writer, Pat Conroy–this is arguably my favorite book of all time)
2. The Art of Natural Family Planning (set me on the right path before I had a chance to make any mistakes and I am grateful)
3. Let’s Have Healthy Children (read while pregnant with #1 and I credit it with the robust health enjoyed by all my children)
4. Surrendering to Motherhood (I need to re-read this periodically to remind me of what’s REALLY important)
