It got hard near the end because I had to consider what books changed my life, or influenced me to become who I am.  There aren't many that I can remember or that I would carry around with me everywhere.  These are some of my favorites, some that made me a better writer, a better teacher... a better me.

What are yours?  Have you read any of mine?

And yay! Posted!
