Books, books, books!!!

Thanks to Mel I finally created a BlogHer account so that I could comment here and get a book donated. And you should to. Plus it's fun to sit for a minute and remember your favorite books and the impact they've had. It makes me want to go home and pull out all my old favorites and re-read them right now!

Here are the books I listed over at BlogHer as those that made a difference to me.

- Wuthering Heights
- The Secret Garden
- The Little Women series
- A Little Princess
- The Anne of Green Gables books
- The Betsy-Tacy books
- The Great Gatsby
- Tender Is the Night
- Franny and Zooey
- The Big Rock Candy Mountain
- Crossing to Safety (really everything by Stegner)
- Darkness Visible

What books made a difference in your life?

You had me until the Great Gatsby. Couldn't stand that book. I do love The Secret Garden though. I probably read it once a year

The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein. Every year I read it to my 2nd graders, and get weepy at the end.
