    The Once and Future King: Helped me set an ideal for myself as a kid. Just recently reread it a few months ago, and has helped me start to find myself again.

    Chronicles of Narnia and Just So Stories: First books I remember liking. I wasn't a big Seuss fan.

    The Bible: Set off a seven and a half year journey where my faith faltered, faded, and then resurfaced, albeit in a different light.

    Animal farm and Harrison Bergeron: Helped me establish my political views.

    Default "The Wind in the Willows", and, "Doonesbury".

    I love, "The Wind in the Willows".

    For my friends - Mole, the Water Rat, Toad, Badger, Otter and young Portly are always with me.

    And every time the wind plays in the willows, I can hear the pipes of Pan.

    And as the leaves turn to gold, I hear the call of the South.

    But on a more practical level, I read the Business Section of, "The Australian", newspaper every day for the cartoon called, "Doonesbury".

    And I find it is not so much a cartoon as a guide to life.

    Animorph series,

    It was the first science fiction stories I've read and what got me into books at age 10.

    A song of ice and fire series ruined every fantasy novels I've read, because none of the latter ever matched up to the epic scales Ice and Fire has built.
    This post grammatical errors had been intentionally left uncorrected.
