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] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
( My parents worked in Nigeria and this book helped me understand them and a little about Igbo Nigeria)

The Book About Moomin, Mymble and Little My by Tove Jansson
( The Moomins are everything I aspire to be. Seriously I adore the world in which Moomintroll can go on any adventure in the knowledge that Moominmama will be there with raspberry juice on his return)

The Summer Book by Tove Jansson
(Well chosen words create a vivid image of a rich world of family, sea and complex emotions)

Gilgamesh
(This really is epic! Adventure and also a world in which politics and religion were already tightly defined but so intertwined that we can’t really imagine)

The Quran
( I studied this as a literary work during my degree along side Muslim post grads from Malaysia. I was out of my depth but very interested in the poetic qualities and repeated themes)


Flip Flops Secret by Molly Brett
(This is a wonderful book about a naughty frog who has lots of fun showing the stuck up animals in his wood how to have fun)

The Mystery of the Pantomime Cat by Enid Blyton
(I really love this book. The Five Foundouters led by Fatty solve mysteries and it is so fun.)

Uncle by J.P Martin
Uncle is a splendid elephant who wears a purple dressing gown and the enemy he loves to hate is Beaver Hateman, the best villain in all literature.


All The Hippos Go Berserk by Sandra Boynton
(Hippos come to a party and have lots of fun and even when my babies were very small they understood that mummy loved rampaging hippos.)

Bob Bug by Julia Donaldson
(This author really is incredible. The story is about 50 words kind and still really fun.)

I LOVE PLUMP HAPPY ANIMALS IN BOOKS AND REAL LIFE :)

JOSETTE SIMON as DAYNA MELLANBY 

Simon portrayed a smart, sexy and deadly gunslinger on Blake’s 7; a BBC show that, in some ways inspired Joss Whedon’s beloved sci-fi western Firefly. Mellanby was on a mission to avenge the death of her father at the hands of the evil federation forces. One can easily see Dayna as an influence on Gina Torres’ character Zoe from Whedon’s show. -John Jennings

I dunno about any of the Firefly stuff cos I haven’t seen that show but Dayna is awesome. Season 3 Blakes 7 was my Blakes 7 *rocks happily back on chair in senescent haze*
