10 Books that have helped me

Everyone has books that have made an impression on them and perhaps have helped them in some way. Perhaps they affected the way you think or maybe even saved your life. Or it could be something like giving you a new appreciation for an old poet or poetry in general.

Here are my 10 books in no particular order:
1: Illusions by Richard Bach
2: Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
3. Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein
4. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
5. Dreams Underfoot by Charles de Lint
6. Poemcrazy by Susan G. Woolridge
7. Scrambled Eggs and Whiskey by Hayden Carruth
8. The Essential Haiku by Robert Hass
9. The House with a Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs
10. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

All that I am, all that I ever was...

01. Quest for a Kelpie(Frances Hendry)
02. Thirteen Reasons Why (Jay Asher)
03. The Hotel New Hampshire (John Irving)
