    Hi all,

    I was wondering, what is your favorite book?

    My favorite is definitely Catcher in the Rye :)

    I read a lot (book a week) and don't really have a favorite. However, I can recommend:

    Bravo Two Zero
    The Rule of Four
    Pompeii

    Anything by Phillippa Gregory. She can't write a bad book.

    I think you can tell a lot about a person by how they answer that question! ;)

    This is such a hard question but my top five would be Matilda, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, The Westing Game, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Count of Monte Cristo. That's just off the top of my head though. I'm sure that would change on another day. I'm already wondering if Lonesome Dove shouldn't be in there instead.

    I was just telling my husband yesterday that I think it might be time to re-read all the Harry Potter books in a row. That could be a fun project to start during winter break...

    Hard to choose, but what pops into my head today are 1963 by Stephen King (not a horror story), To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride and Prejudice, most John Grisham books but not The Chamber, Unbroken and that's all for this minute. For YA books, The Cay is my all-time favorite, hands down. I love that book.

    I like reading Tolkien, Jordan, Martin, Cussler, Jacques, and L'Amour. Out of all that, the most magical book...the Silmarillion.

    I do like suspense/mystery. Unfortunately, no favorite book here. I haven't had time to really read for fun in my adult life since I've always been in college since 18 & grad school twice, so there's always textbooks to read. The occasional break I have, I'll flip through one of my many magazines.

    When I'm finally done w/ grad school again, I plan to finally do some fun novel reading.
