Hi Everyone<br><br>
I got this idea from Tsila! I was curious about what are your favorite book(s). Reading is a hobby and I also like to write poems. My favorite book is the "The Bluest Eye"by Toni Morrison<br><br>
Peace and Love<br><br><br><br>
Thanks Tsila

The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky has been my favorite book for a few years, and looks to continue to be so. It's just so great, I can't even explain it! Philosophical and psychological depth is a characteristictrait of Dostoyevsky's novels! A close second would be Crime and Punishment.<br><br><br><br>
For classic fantasy appeal, I'll choose The Lord of the Rings for my third favorite, or Return of the King if I must get specify my favorite book from the series.

i'd have to say my favourite books are:<br><br>
- A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving<br><br>
- She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb<br><br>
- Not wanted On The Voyage by Timothy Findlay<br><br>
- Love In The Time Of Cholera by Gabriel Marques<br><br><br><br>
These books will not dissapoint. (that's my opinion anyway)

I can't pick just one either. I have a terrible habit of reading half a book and setting it down forever, so it seems to me that most books that I like are all of the ones I've ever finished. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I like books about the plight of the average person...<br><br><br><br>
A Tale of Two Cities, The Grapes of Wrath, and The Jungle are all quite high on the list.<br><br><br><br>
I really enjoyed 1984, which I recently read.<br><br><br><br>
Then of course there's the Harry Potter series which is quite attention holding, and naturally, The Lord of the Rings, which is a completely perfect book. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

Wow, this thread is a year old!<br><br><br><br>
Catch-22, plus everything by Kurt Vonnegut and Graham Greene, those top my list.<br><br><br><br>
There are so, so many other things that I love. Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Solzhenitsin (sp!) come to mind....

I've read and love just about every Stephen King/Richard Bachman book. I especially liked IT, and Insomnia. But his some of his short storys have made me cry, or at least one that I can specifically remember. He's truely amazing, though I sometimes have to force myself to read the first 20 or so pages.<br><br><br><br>
The Hobbit was a spectacular book.. I haven't been able to make myself finish Lord of the Rings. Ayn Rand the Fountainhead was really good too.<br><br><br><br>
Miles and Me (a Miles Davis biography[?]) by Quincy Troupe was a great great book, but then again I'm addicted to Miles' music.<br><br><br><br>
