I'm curious, what is your favorite book out of all the books that you've ever read? It can be literary or popular, fiction or non-fiction. Basically any genre. If you can, explain why it's your favorite. Otherwise, you don't have to. I want to see if there's a specific one that reoccurs. Plus, I'll add the titles to my list to read to add to my list of read.
If it's hard to pick one, you can list up to three.
I think this has been asked...but...
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin...and almost every Austin book.
I have read it at least 10 -12 times...the dialogue is amazing! I have a very old paperback (lol..the price on the paperback is .35 cents, that's how old it is) I keep in it in glove compartment, so if I get stuck somewhere I can pull it out and read a chapter or two...anywhere in the book...and be entertained.
I really loved "The Fountainhead." I don't really believe in Ayn Rand's philosphy, but she was a good writer and it's just a good story. I remember getting swept up in that book and what would happen next.
Other books that were very engrossing:
-To Kill A Mockingbird
-The Handmaid's Tale
-War and Peace (It took awhile to get into, but once you get into it it's SO good)
I plan on reading Jane Austen when it comes in the mail from Amazon. I ordered three of her books. I can't believe I haven't read any of her books yet.
Classics are Anna Karenina and Madame Bovary and contemporary choice is The Other Side of You by Salley Vickers - love them all, they are like 'comfort reading' for me. So hard to choose though - I read three novels minimum every week!
