Books I Will Never Forget

The list author says: "While I've been a painter all my life, I've also written several children's books and my memoir, "A Gift from Brittany," was published last year. I've always been an avid reader and in many ways I was inspired by these rich and, in some cases, life-changing books that I return to from time to time."

Nancy This is a rather bizarre list, mixing romance and current popular, with truly classic books. I don't get it. Maybe it should be "books I liked". They don't merit "books I will never forget" in my mind. Or if this is just one person's opinion, which they are entitled to, why is it on Goodreads, as if many people voted on this list?

Rachel It's not that I have a good answer for that question, it's just that, all of the lists are made up of opinions.

Tom agree with Nancy..

There are hundreds of lists for everything...even for books with black and orange covers, or purple if you prefer..... LOL! don't take it too serious. Everyone has different opinions especially here on goodreads.

It's odd but some books stick to mind (a lot) more than others, and strangely enough for me it has nothing to do with the quality of the book. One of the books that cannot be counted as literature but does stick firmly in my mind is The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer. Another is Rule Britannia by Daphne du Maurier. Why? Absolutely no idea. They are just there, tucked away safely in my mind together with great books like Thackeray's Vanity Fair and Fielding's Tom Jones, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Margaret Laurence's 'Manawaka series', Alan Duff's Once were warriors trilogy and so on and so forth.
Oddly enough there are other very famous books where I only have a vague recollection of the contents, even though I know for sure that I've read them :-) So for me personally, "Books I Will Never Forget" fits the bill, so to speak, although probably not in the way the creator of this listopia meant :-).
