Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard – they don’t have to be “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends.
1.) The Hundred and One Dalmatians - Dodie Smith
2.) Danny the Champion of the World - Roald Dahl
3.) Blott on the Landscape - Tom Sharpe
4.) Star Wars - credited to George Lucas, actually novelised by Alan Dean Foster
5.) Pet Shop Boys, Literally - Chris Heath
6.) Doctor Who and the Genesis of the Daleks - Terrance Dicks
7.) The Making of Doctor Who (Target edition) - Terrance Dicks and Malcolm Hulke
8.) The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien
9.) The Castle of Adventure - Enid Blyton
10.) So Long, and thanks for all the fish - Douglas Adams.
As ever, the caveat goes with this sort of list - it could be a totally different list tomorrow.
Can't be bothered tagging anyone. If you read this and you feel like doing it, consider yourself tagged. Be interested to know what your ten books would be, though. :-)
