The 10 Book Challenge

Have you seen this on your Facebook feed

"List 10 books that have stayed with you. These are the guidelines: Don't take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard. They do not have to be the "right" books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way. Then tag 10 friends including me so that I can see your list."

We are sharing our 10's with you and hope that you will share your tens with us! Write in the comment section to share yours!
