Re: Favorite book?

Is it ok if I include the 50 Shades trilogy as one book or do i need to choose just one?

Re: Favorite book?

If I had to choose only one.... As Hot as It Was You Ought to Thank Me by Nanci Kincaid.

Don't eva let nobody tell you you ain't strong enough

Re: Favorite book?

I can't tell if that's a joke or not no offence, I just never hear good things about it

Re: Favorite book?

Fiction - "The Harper Hall Trilogy" by Anne McCaffrey especially the first 2 "Dragonsong" and "Dragonsinger" for years they were my "go to" books.

Non-fiction - "The Art of LEGO Design" by Jordan Schwartz. Yes, I'm an Adult Fan of Lego.

Re: Favorite book?

In terms of the one I've read most & enjoyed over the years, it has to be Halliwell's Film Guide.

Fiction-wise, maybe Mann's The Magic Mountain - certainly the one that's brought me most pleasure; Mann's prose is hard to beat for beauty.

Re: Favorite book?

East of Eden by John Steinbeck.

It's weird. I picked that giant book up for the hell of it when I started reading it a few years. It wasn't assigned or recommended by anyone personally.

Anyway, the novel also features one of my favorite literary villains, Cathy Ames/Kate.

Re: Favorite book?

can't pick one.
based on the number times I have re read the book Herzog by Saul Bellow.
a close 2nd would be The Moviegoer by Walker Percy.

I'm not a criminal Iris, I'm an outlaw.

Re: Favorite book?

I probably need to re-read it to know for sure, but I'm gonna go ahead and say my favourite book is now Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey.


Re: Favorite book?

tough to choose between CATCHER IN THE RYE and FACTOTUM.

I get melancholy if I don't write. I need the company of people who don't exist.

Re: Favorite book?

Dandelion Wine -- Ray Bradbury, probably. A departure from the science fiction he's more usually known for, it's a slice of a young boy's childhood, a bit Stand By Me-ish.


Re: Favorite book?

The Complete Saki. I can always find something in it that pleases me.

Re: Favorite book?

Bargle...excellent choice...I own a copy of The Short Stories of Saki (AKA HH Munro)He had incredible storytelling ability...

And below is the opening introduction statement to my Saki short story volume:

"The smiling bitter rubaiyat from which Hector Munro took his pseudonym were effectively symbolic of his own gift."
