Booking Through Thursday

OK, this is the first time that I've joined in on this one.... it's all about books!

“This can be a quick one. 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.”

  1. The Bible
  2. Rose in Bloom(And others) by Louisa May Alcott
  3. Rivets and Sprockets by A. Key
  4. The Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  5. The Wizard of Oz books by Frank L. Baum
  6. The Moosepath League books by Van Reid
  7. Gladys Aylward: The Little Woman
  8. Madeleine L'Engle's "Meet the Austins"
  9. Living a Beautiful Life by Alexandra Stoddard
  10. Dark Horse by John Fischer
  11. The Body by Chuck Colson
  12. The Pecan Tree (by ??? picture book from grade school)
  13. Pocketful of Pinecones by Karen Andreola
  14. Heidi by Johanna Spyri
  15. The Black Stallion by Walter Farley
Well.. lots of these are considered "Children's books", but I guess that a good book is a good book, regardless of the age that it is written for.

If you want to see what books have affected other folks, hop on over to and check it out. Feel free to leave me a comment or two, as well, if you'd like. ;)

Welcome to BTT! It's always the first books you read that have the biggest impact. I have a few younger audience books, but read them when I was older, but that doesn't make them any less wonderful.

I'd like to add my welcome to BTT. I was pleased to see that some of the books on my list are on yours. I know that I was steered toward good books when I was a kid and those are definitely the memorable ones.
