Tough call on that one as I like many genre's and authors. The Stand by Stephen King stands out for some reason. The Hobbit is also memorable for me.

Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck
Horatio Hornblower, Forester
Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand
The Stand, King
Lord of the Rings, Tolkien

Guess How Much I Love You

(A great children's book that touches my heart every time I read it to my son. It says so much with so few words.)

Happy reading everyone!

My all-time favorite book is The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran. The book has been really inspirational to me.

I love Siddartha by Hermann Hesse as well :) It's so beautiful. But in choosing my favourite, I'd have to go for Shogun by James Clavell. Many people hate the style, but I can ignore it and absolutely love the story.
