Only Fifteen??

Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. (Seriously, it only took like 15 seconds...)

These are in the order they came to me, not a ranking.
  1. Living Without Regret
  2. Tao of Equus
  3. The Horse Boy
  4. Prayers that Bring Miracles
  5. Think and Grow Rich
  6. Willpower is Not Enough
  7. The Freedom Factor
  8. Founding Fathers on Leadership (I also liked Martin Luther King Jr. on Leadership and Lincoln on Leadership, but Founding Fathers was my favorite.)
  9. Bonds that Make us Free
  10. Leadership and Self-Deception
  11. Launching a Leadership Revolution
  12. I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla-Sollew
  13. Intuitive Eating
  14. The Giver
  15. It's Not About the Horse
  16. Waking the Tiger
I tried to limit it to fifteen... I just couldn't... But I was close. :)
Although there are several others that are wandering around in my brain and want my attention...
  1. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyways
  2. The Four Agreements
  3. Shame and Grace
  4. Stroke of Insight
  5. Book of Heroes
  6. I feel like I should put the Bible and the Book of Mormon...
  7. You are Special
  8. The Sexual Healing Journey
  9. Lord of the Flies (It will stick with me forever, even though I sure wish it wouldn't!)
  10. Calico Captive (The first historical fiction book I ever read. I loved it back then!!)
  11. The Devil's Arithmetic (This book got me hooked on learning about WWII)
  12. The Lottery Rose
  13. Courage to Heal
  14. The Great Brain books
  15. The Work and the Glory books
  16. Harry Potter books

  18. The Future Diary
  19. Power of Passion (a story about climbing Mount Everest)
  20. Screwtape Letters
  21. Hope for the Flowers
  22. Terry Fox: His story
That's all... for now...
