15 books in 15 minutes

Dan Ellard tagged me in the “15 books” meme.

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 minutess.

I’m doing mine in my blog, so I don’t lose it in the bowels of Facebook:

  1. “Lord of the Rings” (J.R.R.Tokien)
  2. “Third Wish” (Robert Fulghum)
  3. “Consciousness Explained” (and everything else by Dan Dennett)
  4. “The Ancestor’s Tale” (and everything else by Richard Dawkins)
  5. “God is not Great” (Christopher Hitchens)
  6. “Godel, Escher, Bach” (and everything else by Doug Hofstadter)
  7. “I, Asimov” (Isaac Asimov – I like his novels, but prefer these essays)
  8. “H.M.S.Ulysses” (Alastair MacLean)
  9. “The Penguin Atlas of Ancient History” (and the others in the series by Colin McEvedy)
  10. “The Daughter of Time” (Josephine Tey)
  11. “Windscale 1957” (Lorna Arnold – my mother; also her books on the UK bomb)
  12. “The Demon-Haunted World” (Carl Sagan)
