If you are part of our little community odds are you are a voracious reader: I am, and ever since I was little I catch myself (or my parents would) staying up way too late, totally engrossed in a book. So, I started thinking of different books I still remember vividly or had an influence on me – considering the number of books I read each year there’s not too many I can still recall decades later, and there are even fewer I have read multiple times. Which tells me those books must be pretty darn good.
I’m sure you have books that have done the same to you, also. Why not share some of those titles with others here? I’m certain they would appreciate it as they look for their next read and, who knows, you may find something you can’t put down?
Don’t take too long to think about it – list out five books you’ve read that will always stick with you. The first five you can recall in no more than five minutes; I thought this would be easy for me but will admit it was hard for me to do
