my top 10 Books


Someone recently asked me what ten of favorite fiction books are. That was a tough choice, one I difficult time keeping at ten, since I could think of dozens more I'd like to include. When I finally came up with the following books, they all had the effect of shifting or altering my perspective in so profound a way, that it rocked me out of the comfort zone of familiar ideas. Simply, these books changed me in some fundamental way. Exactly like excellent writing should. These are the books I will never forget, and will definitely read again.
