#I WOULD LIKE TO THANK BOTH GOD AND SATAN
Barbican Centre by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon
Due to the large scale of the buildings and green spaces, it is easily forgotten that you in the middle of busy London.

The Scully and Mulder Mystery Stories - 1960s teen detective AU
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
I have not completed something like this since high school, back when people sent this sort of thing via email. Nostalgia!
- The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
- My favorite series as a child, this and the old fashion Nancy Drews. It was the first time I had encountered allegory, mind blown.
- Miss Rumphius by Barbra Cooney
- I’ve loved this picture book since I was a young child. I wanted to be Miss Rumphius, and probably still do.
- Zen Shorts by Jon J. Muth
- I found this book a couple of years ago when I was doing research for a Children’s Lit. course and immediately loved it. It is beautiful and to my mind quite timeless.
- The existing works of David Sedaris (probably future works too)
- David Sedaris, ‘nuff said. (I’ll never believe he is overrated, ever)
- A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
- Rebellion! My parent’s forbade this book for some reason, Focus on the Family perhaps. I was caught, but that didn’t change my profound love for this story.
- The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
- Christian culture informed my family that I would in fact become a real witch with real magical powers (which would be awesome). My favorite librarian, Joyce, made sure I was the first to read each release. Censorship only motivates me.
- The Library by Sarah Stewart
- My coworker read this to me as I organized the shelves at our small community library. The main character in this picture book is the bibliophile I aspire to be. I would be happy to live the existence described.
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
- I, like every other person who read this as a teen, found this book to be an intensely personal favorite.
- The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
- I don’t know why I love this book as much as I do, but I do. I return to it every couple of years since I first read it in third grade.
- Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
- This was one that I made my mother read to me over and over again.
"It certainly is my opinion that a book worth reading only in childhood is not worth reading even then." - C.S. Lewis
Mine are nearly all children’s books and four of them are picture books. Of course, I love adult audience books too. If I fill this out in ten years I bet a number of them will be some of my current faves. But these are the ones that have had many years to bury themselves into my heart and my identity.
If I tagged you don’t feel obligated — but nostalgia and isn’t this ridiculousness exactly what the internet is made for?
If I didn’t tag you perhaps I thought you were too hip for this nonsense and you really ought to disprove that. (plus I am a tiny bit shy)
this is the one i’ve needed
This guy is a national goddamn treasure.
Liz I hope you see this.
haha yes I’ve seen this a few times recently, funny every time. I miss Dexter.
