books that have stayed with me

My sister, Anna, tagged me on Facebook for this.

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 "great" works just ones that have touched you. Tag 10 friends, including me so I can see your list, too.

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (J.K. Rowling)
2. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (J.R.R. Tolkien)
3. Apollo 13 (Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger)
4. Marley and Me (John Grogan)
5. An Inconvenient Truth (Al Gore)

7. Everyone Worth Knowing (Laura Weisberger)
8. Outbreak (Robin Cook)
