The 10 book meme – my version

This is my version of the meme going around on Facebook (not that anyone asked) to name 10 books that have stuck with you without thinking too much about it:

  1. Ecclesiastes – unknown
  2. Night – Elie Wiesel
  3. The Hound of the Baskervilles – Arthur Conan Doyle
  4. Introduction to Christianity – Joseph Ratzinger (or Truth Tolerance and the World Religions, both of which I read around the same time and had a significant effect on me)
  5. The Beak of the Finch – Jonathan Weiner
  6. The Neuroscience of Language – Friedemann Pulvermuller (close competitor – A Cognitive Exploration of Language and Linguistics – Dirven and Verspoor eds.)
  7. The Critical Meaning of the Bible – Raymond Brown
  8. The Count of Monte Christo – Alexandre Dumas
  9. The Lexical Approach: The State of ELT and a Way Forward – Michael Lewis
  10. Introduction to Biblical Hebrew – Charles Isbell

Now that the task actually has me thinking about it, this was pretty much impossible.
