The First Novel I Read

In the sixth grade I received a hardback copy of Exodus as a Christmas present.  It marked my graduation from the Hardy Boys and Landmark books into the world of real novels.    I’ve read better literature, but my list of “bucket books” is about books that have been influential in my life.    Can you remember the first time you heard of Hitler’s “final solution” or the death ovens?  I remember asking my father how to pronounce Auschwitz  while reading it.  I saw the world differently after that. Leon Uris’ historical fiction provided my introduction to the holocaust and post World War II politics. The book has left a lasting impression.


Bucket Books are the ones I consider “must reads.”  These are the books that have had the greatest impact on me over the years.  They include fiction, classics, business, theology….you name it.

Which books have been most influential in your life?
