1. The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman
2. Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
3. My Year of Meats by Ruth Ozeki
4. Mountain Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder
5. The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien
6. Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser
7. Blindness by Jose Saramego
8. The Invisible Circus by Jennifer Egan
9. Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver
10. House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III

And my favorite book growing up: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
