I can't stop loving The Tale of Harry Sawtelle!

In the Romance Novel Category my absolute favorite is the one that started it all . . .
The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss (may she rest in peace).

Belva Plain's "Random Winds"! Captures the human heart and all of its needs and hopes. Can't be without a copy of it

Also Jacqueline Hart's , "Damage". Her descriptions of the characters' emotions is breathtaking.

All time favorite has to be The Outlandaer Series By Diana Gabaldon. It offers historical, romance, comedic, suspenseful, Thrill, amongst many other perspectives.

My favourite book would have to be "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak.

Far and away, Catch 22. The funniest, zaniest and tragic book I have ever read.

I have more than one favorite book. One I just finished recently was Ken Follett's 'Fall of Giants' which is book one of a trilogy. It was a great read and touched on historical events which made it seem like a true story. Getting ready to start book two 'Winterof the World' and expect it will be just as good.

Yes, for me too, in my Top Ten. Couldn't believe when one of my best friends since childhood said she couldn't get into it.

Best book I ever read is "The Power of One" by Brice Courtney.
The only book I ever started over again the moment I finished reading it.

one of my most favorite books was ONCE WE WERE BROTHERS.

Posted on Oct 12, 2012, 6:58:05 PM PDT
an old but favorite is A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN. even though i read it many years ago in school i loved it even more when i read it recently.

Try a classic: ``War and Peace.'' Takes some effort early, but for anyone who likes war stories, romance and/or history this is THE original real deal by one of world literature's very best writers.

"One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Marquuez, and for those of you who think Cloud Atlas is original, try reading "Riddley Walker"' by Russell Hoban

I agree. I just read it for the first time and I've been telling everyone to read or reread it. Great story.
