    I’ve said this before, but the lack of overlap between everyone’s lists is pretty funny to me.Report

    I keep trying to do one of these lists, but I really can’t make up my mind what to put on it.

    Partly, it’s just that some of my most influential/formative mediated narrative experiences weren’t books – but it seems inappropriate to cite Neon Genesis Evangelion even if it was to me something like what the Ayn Rand books are to some of you.Report

      @JosephFM, yeah, I have similar. Out of all of the books I’d put on my list, 8 have shown up on these various lists.

      As soon as someone mentions Walter Kaufmann’s _Faith of a Heretic_ and John Ralston Saul’s _Voltaire’s Bastards_, I’ll be able to write a “top 10 book list lists”.Report
