What are some of your favorite books? Books that you could read over and over.

I could read the books on the list above over and over. I'm currently reading Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath and I'm loving it.


  1. I'm so glad you shared The History of Love and Rain of Gold with me. I'm currently reading Love in the Time of Cholera and it may be a favorite by the time I'm finished. Doesn't seem like the book you're reading RIGHT NOW is always your favorite? I'd add:

    The Good Earth- Pearl S. Buck
    The Chronicles of Narnia- C.S. Lewis
    Their Eyes Were Watching God- Zora Neale Hurston
    Things Fall Apart- Chinua Achebe

  2. Grapes of Wrath is my all time favorite book.

    Read The Shack. Now. I have it, you can borrow it.

  3. going to work mu way through your list.

    have you read A town like Alice by Nevil Shute? love. I know this is late but better that than never.
