Compartment C, Car 293 (Edward Hopper, 1938)
The idea sounds like fun, so i made a list of books myself. First i thought that it would be hard to list only 10 books, but actually it was hard to deside which books were really lifesavers.
(It would be cool to say that "yeah, a villain shot me but luckily i had Umberto Ecos The Name of the Rose in my pocket that stopped the bullet and saved me.)
So, this is a list of books that saved my life and/or made a huge impact on me.
-Lähdettyäsi (lovepoems from 6th century China) - Translated into Finnish by Pertti Nieminen
-Matkalla niityn yli - Lassi Nummi (My favourite poet)
-The Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov
-Good Morning, Midnight - Jean Rhys
-Hullunkurinen lintukirja ("the crazy bird book") - Mauri Kunnas
-Naiv.Super - Erlend Loe
-Hanhiemon satuaarre ( a wonderful book of fairytales, lovely illutrations by Feodor Rojankovski)
-Kun Miinus lähti avaraan maailmaan (Minus and the great wide world) - Sven Nordqvist
-The Winter Queen (original titel Azazel) - Boris Akunin
-The Lady of the Camellias - Alexandre Dumas
To that list i could ad all kinds of travel guides, atlas and everything by Agatha Christie (except 'The Big Four').
Reading is fun!
