This is from a tag thing on Facebook and around. [Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Tag 15 friends, including me because I'm interested in seeing what books my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your 15 picks, and tag people in the note - upper right hand side. If you don't have a "notes" tab, click on the big '+' in your Profile menu and add Notes.)]
I'd make the list look nicer but I have no mouse at the moment and it's too hot.

*having perused my book shelves I found Jay McInerny's Story of My Life which should be on this list. And pat Conroys Tidvattnets furste ( I once had a colleague who collected this book. All copies he could find. Or editions. He had lots. Also, like me, he was named after a character in Astid Lindgren's Mästerdetektiven Blomqvist series).
I like my list. I have brilliant taste in books. I can't help but think it's incomplete so I thought I'd make another list of 15 authors that I always carry around with me.
Terry Pratchett (see, he didn't even make the first list and he's my first, my last and my everything)
Fay Weldon (I love her, truly, madly, deeply)
Sue Townsend (I'm not gonna do the song titles, it's silly)
Charles Dickens (also I should make a list of authors that should'nt even have to be mentioned. Shakespeare is on that one)
Fay Weldon (I know, but it's important, BUT mainly just the early work which is genious, later stuff not so much, but Puffball, the short stories, ah, the short stories, and Praxis, and The Heart of the Country )
W. Somerset Maugham
F Scott Fitzgerald (see, I am romantic)
I could also make a list of my 15 most important crime writers and ditto fantasy. And serious literature and not so serious literature. But I'll stop here and I would very much like to see similar lists from V. The rest of you I'll just tag on Facebook.
