The most important question.

Look inside, pick a book and tell me why.

  1. The Mirror... I can't even remember who wrote it but it was about a mirror that could send you back in time into one person and bring them into the future. I read it probably 20 times or more...

  2. "Collection of Kipling's verses" 1888-1921

    I reflect on that as much or more than anything that I ever read. There have been a number of book that had profound impacts on me. That one was lasting and I paid $1.00 for it in a used bookstore in San Francisco.

    White Powder: A Novel of the CIA and the Secret War in Laos is a close second only because I wrote it.

  3. My favorite book of all time is hands down "Walden." I guess it's my favorite because I can relate to it and the way he viewed the world and everything in it. That book has brought to me a self-awareness that I wouldn't otherwise have.

  4. Asking a bibliophile to pick their favourite is like asking a kid to choose between her parents :P I absolutely love reading Blyton and Christie, even now. Others books I love very much are Wuthering Heights (there is something magical and extremely powerful and poignant about its dialogues), Sea of Poppies, Midnight's Children and Metamorphosis. what are your favourites? :)

  6. My Favorite Book?
    Definitely 'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bronte
    I read it when I was in Grade IX....and it reminds me of all the conversations and discussion that I had with my sister in those days regarding various aspects pf the novel!
    for me its a very "Beautiful" memory!
    I loved it.....almost everything in it, i remember.
    My favorite character Mr. Rochester, The charisma he carried and the way the writer presented it to the readers....marvelous! I cant forget imagining the Lowood School (the scary winters!) or Mr. Brocklehurst (the deadly principal) or the Reed family or Bertha Rochester or surely Jane Eyre! it was full of emotions, morals, even religion as well!

    I loved it !
    at the same time i cannot stop myself mentioning that "Tale of Two cities" by Charles dickens also remains my all time Favorite!

  7. My favorite book is one I've recently read, "The Storyteller" by Jodi Picoult. Words cannot describe how much I feel for that book. I literally want to run up to Jodi and be like "I love you so much you're my hero please don't ever stop writing".

    I really like your header by the way :)

  11. The Kite Runner by Khalid

    There is such simplicity in his words, yet having the effect of touching your heart strings.

  19. I will have to give that some thought. I am 50 and have done a considerable amount of reading....it's close to impossible to choose just one.

  20. Alice in Wonderland - It makes perfect, enchanted sense to me - helps me feel truly alive inside - helps re-frame the world all around (in a more helpful light,) and, makes my heart happy. Thank you for asking.
    Brilliant Day to You!!!

  21. Again, it is almost impossible to answer that one, having reached a retirement age and having read so many books. Books by Rudyard Kipling, C.S. Lewis, JRRTokien...so many. Good question.

  22. This to me is like "what was your favorite moment in life?"
    Too many, of course. Mentioning some would be an injustice to the other.
    Sneaky I am, ain't I? =D

  24. "A Corner of the Universe." _ Ann M.Martin. It helps us understand the hardships of a person who is not like most of us. The author has written the series "Baby Sitter's Club and please don't let the series make the decision for you not to read it.

    I have read a lot of fine lit books in order to even graduate from my college. I am loosing the capacity to retain long stories in my mind therefore as rich as my treasure of reading has been it is as sad. I do not wish my condition on any one. I am in my sixties and I want to be able to enjoy what ever it is I can remember. How ever if the story is short and contained and compelling I enjoy it enough to go back and re read the chapters if I forget. A corner of the Universe is one such book.

  25. Can I pick two? :-)

    The Bible is my number one favorite book. And the second one would be Little Women, because I learned a lot of life lessons that I otherwise would not learn have I not read it. That book really changed me. :-)
