A meme and other small things

As widely meme'd: the fifteen books which influenced me most, that I can quickly think of off the top of my head:

1. The Book of the Dun Cow, Walter Wangerin Jr. (not the ancient Irish manuscript)
2. The Towers of February, Tonke Dragt
3. The Book of the New Sun (series), Gene Wolfe
4. St. Teresa of Avila's autobiography
5. Ascent of Mt. Carmel, St. John of the Cross
6. The Lord of the Rings (series), J.R.R. Tokien
7. Dune, Frank Herbert
8. A Wrinkle in Time, Madeline, L'Engle
9. Maximum Achievement, Brian Tracy
10. Godel, Escher, Bach, Douglas Hofstadter
11. Larousse Gastronomique
12. The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri
13. The Republic, Plato
14. The Illiad, Homer
15. Q is for Quantum, John Gribbin (for strange reasons)

Also today I outran a (very slow) thunderstorm, and am busy knitting my First Sock, as instructed by the fabulous jmeadows.
