What is your favorite book?

Since I'll be spending so much time in the van this year, I thought I'd check out some books on CD from the library. I need book suggestions please! What is your favorite book?

A child called it by david pelzer... its a very very sad story (and true) but a must read especially since you have done foster care

Three Little words, ashley Rhodes Courter: Boy called it is good too saw already commented for of course "Shack" and the same kind of different as me is really good!

Black, Red, and White by Ted Dekker (these are 3 seperate books.) Also, a 4th one, "Green", is about to come out in September. And what's really cool about this trilogy-about-to-be-quadrilogy is that Green completes the trilogy so that it is a full circle. You can read it "Green, Black, Red, White" or "Black, Red, White, Green" and it makes sense either way. :D

Any book by Ted Dekker is pure amazingness! :D

I like so many different books, it is hard to put down my favorites. Maybe you could do classic novels like Pride and Prejudice or the Narnia series. I love Harry Potter (and yes I am a christian and I love Harry Potter). The Time Traveler's Wife was good they just made it into a movie; but the book was really good.

I don't know good luck.

If you want good, light-hearted material then I highly suggest the "At Home in Mitford" series.

Without question, Les Miserables is the best book ever written. Next, I'd go for Anna Karenina followed by A Tale of Two Cities. If you want to do some philosophical thinking, go with Walden. GREAT book. (Not "sound," but very interesting.) LibriVox is a great site with free downloads. Have you read the Iliad? Because EVERYONE should read that book. My kids enjoy listening to books on tape by Mark Twain. They're fun for everyone. We also listened to Uncle Tom's Cabin last year. If you haven't done this as a family, I think you absolutely should do this together. :o) Oh, and Fahrenheit 451 is a very important book. Why not try to listen to the entire Old Testament this school year? There's some great literature there. How's that for a suggestion?

My Sister's Keeper or The Pact by Jodi Picoult, anything by Terry Pratchett (even if you're not crazy about fantasy books...) White Oleander by Janet Fitch and Behond the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson...
I love it when people give me book suggestions!

Oh yeah, and if you want to REALLY lough out loud, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, by Bill Bryson...

I've been reading "Have a New Kid by Friday". I think it has an audio version which I might should've gotten too. Not doing everything like that, but working that direction. Interesting stuff.

Gibbons, S: Cold comfort farm
Golden, A: Memoirs of a geisha.
Adams, R :Watership Downs
Divakaruni, C: Sister of my Heart
Kaye, M :Far Pavillions
Covey, S: Seven habits of highly effective people
Letts, B: Where the heart is,
Snicket, L: Series of unfortunate events

Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson is a must-read! Surprised noone mentioned it! My book club loved it! Happy reading! I love to read. I keep trying to figure out how you can make your day a little easier. Can noone ride the bus?
