15 Books

Name 15 books challenge.

I am playing along with Allie, but I will not be passing this along. Not my style.

I did this in about four minutes...I thought of the first book in my youth that I remembered then moved forward in time. I stayed away from classic works, except for Midsummer, which I read in sixth grade.

The Instructions: 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.

3. Cheaper By the Dozen

4. A Midsummer Night's Dream - Willy

5. Slaughterhouse-Five - Kurt Vonnegut
