Books That Have Stayed With Me

All the Kool Ckids are doing it, and it got me thinking, which is the whole point. So nu, here are ten-plus books that have stayed with me throughout the years. They're in no particular order (except that some of them are associated in my head with others), and I reserve the right to could-have-had-a-V8 and add to the list:

The Butterfly Kid - Chester Anderson
Black and Blue Magic - Zilpha Keatley Snyder
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - Robert Pirsig
The Tao of Pooh - Benjamin Hoff
Illusions - Richard Bach
Stranger in a Strange Land and The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress and Glory Road - Robert Heinlein
The Forbidden Tower - Marion Zimmer Bradley
Moving Pictures/Rock Music (the entire Discworld series, really, but if I have to choose...) - Terry Pratchett
The Girl, The Gold Watch, and Everything - John D Macdonald
Brave New World/1984 (These are inextricably linked in my mind) - Aldous Huxley/George Orwell

[Note: Yes, it's been a while. I'm mostly on FB these days, and really should return here for more long-form blogging and the other things -- like the people -- that LJ is better at.]
