Book Capsule Project

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.
