The Flame and the Flower is also my very favorite . My niece recently met Lisa See at a luncheon and got me a signed copy of On Gold Mountain . Love that gift!

My absolute all time favorite is still 'Jitterbug Perfume' by Tom Robbins. The first time I saw this book was in a glass case at a restaurant. I read it every 5 years or so and every time I find something new. A little different but absolutely mesmerizing.

I have always loved Wuthering Heights, followed by "Shadow in the Wind" -- I've read both the follow-up books to "Shadow" -- fabulous if you love being consumed by books!!!!!! Elaine A.

Wondered when someone was going to list Unbroken. Fantastic book. Found my 40 year old son reading it one day and he is not a reader. Couldn't put it down.

You'll find it Y/A. Excellent story! I tell everyone to read it. Tells the story of a young girls life in Nazi Germany. Amazing view on what it is to be human in inhuman times. One of my favorites!

I absolutely agree. I recommended A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to internationals wanting to learn about the US a few years ago. I fear it is no longer a commentary on our society.

One of my all time favorite books is by Rosamunde Pilcher entitled "The Shell Seekers." I read this book over 20 years ago and it has stuck with me ever since. I have a hardcover -- so want to read it again .... this will be one of my New Year's resolutions!

Have you read the Magus? It has never ended the same way twice for me and I've reread it so many times. Great Author.

I'd vote for Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. In addition to being a great story it has an important message. Alan Blank

I loved Power Of One also. As well as "Five Smooth Stones" by A. Fairbairn. "A Far-Off Place" by L van der Post is a favorite. But up at the top of my list is "Tattoos on the Heart" by Gregory Boyle.

It is hard to pick just one. Of my favorites, perhaps the least well known is The Ring of the Lowenskolds by Selma Lagerlof.
