The list author says: "I like books that make me feel good about myself and others, and the top book on this list, Audrey Niffenegger's "The Time Traveler's Wife surely does that. Image your husband whisking away, gone in time, at the drop of a hat. The story is timeless. Two other writers who are to die for are Nicholas Sparks and John Grisham. Usually one associates Mr. Grisham with murder, dangers and women in trouble, but in "Bleachers" he's written a story that will warm your heart and Amy Tan's writing, like her book "Saving Fish from Drowning", is just too good to be true. All the books on this list are. Really, they are."
