Cooper has tagged me with a book-related meme. I'm supposed to list my five favorite books. I've been tagged with varieties of this before and I gotta tell ya..it can't be whittled down to just five. If you want to see lists and rationales for the books that have had the biggest impact on me you can go check these posts. They all contain either reviews or synopses of books I've been struck by.

How Random Do I Have to Be?
Ok, so if that's not enough I guess I'll come up with some more. Since the first two posts up there detail 15 books that had a lasting effect on me I count those more or less as favorites. Since this award is for those who refuse to live in the real world and since I can't ever follow rules in memes I will list books I found to most effectively transport me to another place. Granted, any engaging book will suffice as evidenced here but these are books that leap to mind most readily.
6. The poetry of William Butler Yeats, Pablo Neruda, and Dorothy Parker. Ok, so I'm not listing specific collections of their work but I have a few and I quite enjoy them...and this is my rendering of the meme so there.
