What's your favorite book(s)?

Reading reading reading...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

What's your favorite book(s)?

All except War and Peace... well not every book in the two series that I mentioned, but some of them. I had to read a lot when I worked in the children's department at the library... :(

The Little House books-I grew up on those books and the TV series and I remember my mother reading them to me when I was little.
Anything and everything Nancy Drew-I have been reading those since I learned how to read.
Anything and everything L.M. Montgomery-An absolutely fantastic writer.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe-I vaguely recall my mother telling me about the BBC movie one night it was on TV and watching it. Plus, I absolutely love the story.

I like reading shorter books more than longer (though I find longer more rewarding), so I'll have to say the Goosebumps (youth) series and the Fear Streat (young adult) series both by R L Stine.

My fave novels are Dreamcatcher, Desperation, The Regulators, The Shining, and The Dark Half by Stephen King, and Jurrasic Park, Timeline, Lost World, and Congo by Michael Crichton.
