The Book of Bright Ideas. Marvelous, funny, heartbreaking and unforgetable.

My favorite has been 5o Shades of Grey-definitely a page turner, I've completed the trilogy. Waiting on more from the author.

I agree. This is a story about a young but very intiutive and psychologically minded woman and how she handles ( and improves ) the situation with a very damaged young man she loves. The relationship is one that could have turned into a very abusive one but this lady has very high self esteem and because of that and her never losing sight of her own comfort zone is able to find a way to be true to both herself and her love for the man she loves. A very suspenseful and encouraging set of books.

"The Harbinger: The ancient history that holds the secret of American's future" by Jonathan Cahn. It answers the question of what lead up to 9/11 and the warning for America. If you like mystery, suspence and adventure you won't want to miss this one.

The best book I have ever read is the Holy Bible. The Second best book is The Shack by William P. Young. Read it and you will see what I mean.

I do not read books at all
but I don't know how I read this book and I can't stop thinking about it.
three sequals so far I hope it never stops.

I tried to read The Shack right after my son died. I was hoping to find some comfort. I put it down halfway through reading it because the comfort I had hoped to find wasn't there for me. But then, I couldn't find comfort reading the Bible either after he died....I don't know why. I've been a Christian most of my adult life, not angry with God because my son died, the pain doesn't go away. After 4 years, I've learned to live with the pain and like to think that my son just lives someplace (Heaven) that I can't travel to for now.

The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson. I kept checking facts and photos on the web about NK because the story seemed so unbelievable, but sadly it's not. This lead me to read the non-fiction Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea, by Barbara Demick, also an excellent read.

Best book I have read in the 20 years since I read The Power Broker (Robt. Caro) is Rising Tide: the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How it Changed America, by John M. Barry. I didn't thing anything like a flood about which I'd not ever heard much could have such an enormous impact on the present day, but I was quite mistaken. Read this book and not only will you be on the edge of your seat for much of the time, but you'll understand the essential political division in this country: those who think government is a force for good and those who don't. Amazing to see the genesis of this.

I loved this book also.

The best books for me, are those I go back and re-read over and over and get enjoyment from each time. Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion are book I can always go back and re-read. Anne Rice, the Vampire series, the Mayfaires and the books about the life of Jesus. The first 8 books in the Sookie Stackhouse series - love them - (book 9-12 not so much) Kim Harrison's Hallows series is pure fun even on third read through, Seth Grahame-Smith's Abraham Lincoln Vampire hunter was fun, educational and surprising, Stephen King and Dean Koonz - love his Odd Tomas series, for the newer book - Ken Follet's Pillars of the Earth was great, I can't wait to re-read it.

I don't think I could just pick one.

I liked it up to the end. It was good, but definately not the best book I have ever read.

I started with Gone Girl, thought it was great. Then I read Sharp Objects and was totally hooked. I just finished Dark Places : A Novel and they just get better and better. Two thumbs up to Gillian Flynn. Sure hope she keeps writing!!!

Ghostworld by David Brookover is a chilling and surprisingly humorous read.

I hated Girl Gone. I just could not like ANY of the characters!

How about one that's free? The Count of Monte Christo - forms the plot of many modern books and dramas (Revenge on TV for example). Plus great atmospherics of the French upper class in its day.

In regard to the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy I definitely think men should read them as well. We all would like our men to be
to some degree more of Christian Gray.

In regard to the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy, I think men should read them as well. Most people I know who read them agree
that they would love to have their men be a little more like Christian Gray !!! Written by E.L. James

In regard to the Fifty Shades of Gray trilogy I feel that men should read them too. I know that I would like a little of Christian Gray in my husband and so
would the many women I've talked to about the terrific books.
