Books that touched me

Here goes:

Wolves of Willoughby Chase -- Joan Aiken
Persian Boy, Fire from Heaven -- Mary Renault
Wings from the Wind (Poetry Collection)
Dark is Rising Series-- Susan Cooper
Once and Future King TH White
Collected Works of Thurber
Hornblower Series
Les Miserables-- Victor Hugo
Moby Dick-- Herman Meliville
Poems of Kipling

My goodness, they are all fiction. That is kind of a surprise, I read a lot of non-fiction too. But the ones that settled in my heart, the ones that I hugged to my chest, the ones I never wanted to end,  those seem to be the ones that were that were 'stories.'  Funny about that...

*nods* I love the cartoon of the couple in bed, that goes something like "OK. You heard a seal bark."

Or "What have you done with Dr Millmoss?"
