1974 Suggestions

The 1974 ChallengeAs I’ve mention previously, I’m planning on challenging myself by reading books published in 1974. Here are the suggestions I’ve had for my challenge so far:

– Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, by Annie Dillard
– The Dispossessed, by Ursula le Guin
– Carrie, by Stephen King
– Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values, by Robert M. Pirsig
– Where the Sidewalk Ends, by Shel Silverstein
– Serendipity, by Stephen Cosgrove
– The Chocolate War, by Robert Cormier
– Centennial, by James Michener
– If Beale Street could Talk, by James Baldwin
– Alive, by Piers Anthony Reed

10 books that have stayed with me

I originally found this meme on Facebook, but decided to post it here.

(…) list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than 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.

Here are my books:
1. Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman
2. Lord of the Rings, by J. R. R. Tolkien
3. Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
4. Northanger Abbey, by Jne Austen
5. Odinsbarn, by Siri Pettersen
6. Ingen må vite, by Aina Basso
7. American Gods, by Neil Gaiman
8. Tipping the Velvet, by Sarah Waters
9. Jordmora, by Katja Kettu
10. Amazone trilogy by Ingar Knudtsen

What are your 10 books?
