Hey it me the Netherlands has been cool but I am ready to go home now hope you peaches are all doing swell

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten (or more) friends, including me, so I’ll see…
1. Banana Yoshimoto - Kitchen
2. Ivan Turgenev - On The Eve
3. Kurt Vonnegut - Timequake
4. Haruki Murakami - South of the Border, West of the Sun
5. John Cage - Silence
6. Patti Smith - Just Kids
7. Franz Kafka - The Metamorphosis
8. Sun-Mi Hwang - The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly
9. Marjane Satrapi - Persepolis
10. Michael Chabon - The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
N.B. The first four authors are writers whose entire bodies of work I cherish and it pains me to have to choose just one book of each of theirs! Anyway, thank you roaringlikethesoundofthesun for tagging me, I’m not going to tag anyone because it will send me into a frenzy over “who is my friend on this site? who will think it’s weird?” so yeah just do it if you think you’re my friend I guess
