10 Books that made an impact

It’s about three weeks late into the Facebook trend, I know. I don’t read much, but here goes:

1. Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini

2. Untitled

That sort of memoir about a drug addict turned writer, that I found on Booksale, and couldn’t seem to find on my shelf

3. This is Water, by David Foster Wallace

A speech turned book that Maix (highschool bff) shared with me

4. What’s so Amazing about Grace, by Philip Yancey

Filled with beauti-awe-ful stories

5. The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger

6. The Giver, by Lois Lowry

A required reading I never read, but read after college

7. Mere Christianity, by C.S. Lewis

Read it back in college and I couldn’t put it down. I must admit, it’s getting harder to re-read

8. The Year of Living Biblically, by A.J. Jacobs

Intrigued with how it would turn out. Entertaining, but I haven’t finished it!

9. The Best Question Ever, by Andy Stanley

About how making consistent deposits of time add up over a lifetime

10. The Jesus I Never Knew, by Philip Yancey

Musts: The Catcher in the Rye, This is Water (quick read)

Runners up: For One More Day, Screwtape Letters, Stargirl

Do you share anything on my list? What’s your top 10 or book recommendations?
