Fifteen Books

One of those Facebook activities sent by a friend. Did this some time ago. Thought about posting it after going over the websites I visit (to read posts, reply etc.).

The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.

1. The Last Battle (from Chronicles of Narnia) by C.S. Lewis
2. The Sign of the Four by Arthur Conan Doyle
3. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
4. Dracula by Bram Stoker
5. Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
6. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
7. The Wounded Land  (from the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant) by Stephen R. Donaldson
8. Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche
9. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
10. On Certainty by Ludwig Wittgenstein
11. A Very Easy Death by Simone de Beauvoir
12. The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
13. The Little Prince by Antoine St. Exupery
14. Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature by Richard Rorty
15. Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk

Wittgenstein's On Certainty is not really a "book," however.
