    On The Road has been my favorite book since I was about 14 or 15 years old. A perfect read for a teenager with a restless soul and the travel itch. I've since read books that were probably "better" or more well written, but it still remains my favorite. Not to mention Jack K. just simply rocked!

    I love the shopoholic books by Sophie Kinsella. They're really girlie Chic Lit, kind of books. But they always put me in a great mood and i can read them over and over again.

    i am a big fan of jane green's books. but i don't really have one particular book (of her's, or anybody elses) that i can call favorite. i'm not a big reader, so i'm just usually really into whatever i am reading at the moment (currently: a million little pieces)

    So many choices.....but I would have to say The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

    That's a toughy.

    I don't have one. There are too many.

    It's different than favorite songs - favorite books I usually only read through once but I dog-ear pages just to look at those lines later because they resonated and continue to effect me long after.

    So judging on what I've dog-eared the most, "Of Human Bondage" by Somerset Maugham, and "the Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand. In fact "the Fountainhead" changed my life.

    "No Compromise" by Keith Green. Here's a guy who was a born-again radical without losing touch with reality, something most Christians can't demonstrate...

    Hm. Harry Potter, I guess, probably the fourth or fifth one.

    "The Stand" by Stephen King. Uncut version, of course.

    Really good characters, and classic King. Good/evil juxtaposition - great read!

    Oh I have so many--I think the one book I would recomment to anyone is The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It is heart wrenching, but somehow it made me feel at ease when I was done.

    And my favorite classic book is A Brave New World by Aldus Huxley. I had to read it in High School, and rushed out to buy it after I was done. Loved it.

    I'm having trouble narrowing it down, even though it's my question! I more wanted to hear everyone's responses :)

    Although "The Sparrow" by Mary Doria Russel and the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters are right up there, I'm going to go with "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon (and sequels). She's a great, detailed story teller and the book takes place in one of my favorite periods, with some magic and romance thrown in. Plus they're huge, so I don't have to leave their world for a long time.

    Honestly I am a slight book worm. I can read a book in just a few days given time permitting. So my favorite book ussually changes on a month to month basis. Though right now it hasn't changed in a while. I would have to say my favorite book(s) are Harry Potter. I can't wait for book 7!!!!!
