    I am happy my life does NOT depend on that question because I have so many books about which I have gotten enthusiastic in the past and which I try to reread when time allows... Not to mention that there are still great books yet to be read and awaiting the first moment I can steal to get to them!

    Just one? But there are so many different ones, for different reasons.

    Pure enjoyment: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
    Pure information: Guns, Germs, and Steel.
    Thought provoking science fiction: The Terminal Experiment
    Classics (older): A Tale of Two Cities
    Classics (modern): Animal Farm
    Fiction where I couldn't stop laughing: Good Omens
    Nostalgic book from childhood: A Swiftly Tilting Planet

    Just finished reading Augusten Burroughs' books...OMG Sellevision is a riot!

    I re-read Dicken's Great Expectations and Irving Stone's Agony and the Ecstasy (story of Michelangelo) every few years or so ... but it is Richard Bach's Illusion's that finds it's way back to me. Everytime I read it - I come away with something new.

    I actually don't think I've read a book I've enjoyed.


    Just read it to read it.



    Uhm, I guess my favorite was...Jedi Academy.

    Because the story doesn't end at Return of the Jedi.

    I just bought "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown. Both "Angels&Demons" and "The Di Vinci Code" were amazing. The lost symbol should be really good.

    Pure enjoyment: Harry Potter series because they are quick and fun.

    Best books PERIOD (in terms of style, plot, esthetics, and pure literary genius): In search of lost time (Yes I have read it all and will finish it again come April), Father Goriot, Dangerous Liaisons,

    Ulysses by Joyce is good too, but gets crappy at the end.

    I forgot one:
    9780141182858L.jpg

    I read this immediately after reading Jane Eyre and have to say I enjoyed this book far more...and it made me appreciate Jane Eyre in ways I would not have expected.

    I do not recommend the movie, but highly recommend this book...even if you've never read Jane Eyre.

    A defining moment in my life - that awakened me on many levels. It helped define my sexuality and my self - worth. Celie is someone I feel so much a part of - still to this day I tear up a bit about how lost I was til I read and heard those first words - "Dear God..." I wasn't so alone in Katy, TX anymore.
    The film and the book are still very close and dear to my heart.

    Herbert's "Dune" made me aware of how powerful and sublime merging words from different cultures can create such a lasting impact in reader's mind and imagination.

    These 2 books were an essential part of how I evolved in my teens and early 20's. Profound and thought provoking literature.
