Several variations on this meme are making the rounds right now, on the journal sites and on Facebook, and I was looking something quick and easy to do today, so this fits my current mood. Ganked from several.

List 15 books (movies, albums, TV shows...) that will always be with you. Don't take too long to think about it; just list the first 15 that come to mind.

Not necessarily favorites (although most qualify from a "media comfort food" perspective if nothing else), and certainly not the things I would hold up as "best" in their given genres. But all of these have influenced me, in one way or another, and I will likely always keep them to hand, and in my heart. Not, for the most part, in any particular order.
