narrow it down to 15?

on facebook (which i am on a little too much), a friend sent along a request of the 15 books that have stayed with you. silly minor game for most people, but for me it was hard. books are personal. the stories, the characters become woven into the tapestries that are our lives. the townspeople of Mitford are friends of mine. i wept with March family when sweet angelic Beth died. i learned magic at Hogwarts. will never forget the lessons i learned from The Good Earth.
so how do i narrow it down to only 15? it wasn't just me. apparently there are many other book nerds out there in facebook land as well. those lists of our favorite 15 were the buzz all day. how wonderful to find out that you are not alone in craze!
