10 books that helped shape my life

I’ve had two different friends ask me to post to Facebook a list of 10 books that have ‘stayed with me over the years.’ So for those friends, here’s my list:

1) The King James Bible
2) Dream Power (Ann Faraday)
3) Walden (Henry David Thoreau)
4) The Lord of the Rings (J.R.R. Tolkien)
5) The Classical Style (Charles Rosen)
6) Inner Chapters (Chuang Tsu) (Zhuangzi) (trans. Gia-Fu Feng & Jane English)
7) Discipline & Punish (Michel Foucault)
8) Kinder- und Hausmärchen (Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm)
9) Mysticism (Evelyn Underhill)
10) Korea’s Place in the Sun: A Modern History (Bruce Cumings)
