What is it?
The idea of the project is to put together a capsule of books that you would recommend to others, or perhaps give a gifts. I like the notion of capsule – a delivery mechanism for booky goodness. But yes, its just a list of books.
What kind of books go in my capsule?
You should choose books that have been formative – books that have shaped you – the way you see the world, the way you think, the way tyou behave, your ethics – that kind of think.
How many books should I choose?
I have limited my list to 10 fiction books and 10 non-fiction books. You have choose as many as you like.
Ok, I have list, now what?
Please share it with me. Put it in the comments or email it to me.
What is your plan?
Not sure. At the moment, I will just compile the lists and see what kind of capsule pops up. Maybe a voting later? Who knows. At the moment I am just curious to see what turns up.
Why should i do it? I am very busy.
Because its fun. I love books and it was very interesting to put the list together. It was also insightful into what I consider formative and what that says about me.
