    The Wild Road by Gabriel King. I didn't realize how badly life went for stray cats. Since then I've had a water bowl outside (heated in winter) and a bowl of dry food for the local strays. I've done it now for almost 18 years. The local cats went from being bone thin to being healthy.

    In all honesty, none. But David Morrell's. The Covenant of the Flame, got me thinking about religion and what people will do to protect their beliefs. I'm not a religious person.

    The Outsiders I was getting bullied in school I had one friend. In English class we started reading the Outsiders. As corny as it sounds I felt like I could relate to the main protagonist Ponyboy a lot. After reading that my view changed  I decided that enough was enough I stood up to my bullies and made plenty of new friends.

    Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, Douglas Hofstadter

    I read it in high school.  It helped determine the university I attended.  It had a big influence on my deciding a college major.

    Lust Lizard because Theo tells Molly that “we all want to be special,” in the sweetest way— and I felt both humility and humanity.

    There have been quite a few which have made me think differently about things, and people throughout the years, but the one which stayed with me as I was growing up, well into my adulthood, was the Diary Of Anne Frank.

    For obvious reasons.

    One of many was Zorba the Greek - definitely NOT the movie even though it isn't bad.  An elder helping a confused young man find his soul.
