I think every author wants to stay in your head. These are the 3 that remained. Also, Microcosmic God. Odd how the trinity of memory is four but then, perhaps, there is a kickstand and it doesn't count.

The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas

Flowers For Algernon

The Cold Equations

ever find yourself reading a book very slowly so as to stretch out the pleasure of the the authors use of words to create a world in your mind? Over the years of standing watch and alert, I have read many books in my spare time. many are the books I have re-read several times. the stories of some meld into stories of others in my mind. connections. links. histories.

I used to read a book a day and yeah, I slowed it down a lot so as to enjoy the book more. I reread some things over and over just because the words delight me. It's weird, growing older, feeling the chill feet of time chasing me and I slow it down in order to enjoy it more. I have over 10,000 books. I won't ever read most of them. Turns out I'm OK with that.

Flowers for Algernon. One fantastic story, I re-read it every so often.
Many authors stick in my mind. I can never ever get enough of GGOD writing.
