What's your favorite book?
My favorite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It gives you so much insight into the world of teenagers and what it feels like to be an outcast pretty much. Once you read it you will never forget it.

I think one of my favorite books ever is 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' by Betty Smith. I think as a youngster, it helped me understand other people's feelings and see things from other points of view than my own.

Hardest choice I'd have to make in my entire life.? But I'll have to go with "Bewoulf" by Grimmere.?

I have many books to favor. I believe the classics are the best for all readers. I have read many books, that makes me feel favoring a book over another is killing books. So, for psuchological matters, The Glass Menagerie is my number one. For gender issues, Mrs. Dalloway. For philosophical questions, Camus's The Outsider is the best....

This is so hard to pick. Some of my favorites are volume 1 of Rokka no Yuusha, book 4 of Harry Potter (Goblet of Fire), Matilda, Double Fudge, Lunch Money, The Report Card, and even ones like 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.

Of these, I dont know which I like best. It depends on my mood and which ones I'm craving/haven't read in a while. And sometimes, even these can waver - when I last reread part of Prisoner of Azkaban, I found parts more fun than Goblet of Fire, for example.

So I guess I dont have one...that or I would need to debate it all. There's just so many good books though!
Hi all. I like board games, card games, video games, books (especially children's books and mysteries), stories, cartoons, anime, manga, light novels, animation, and other light-hearted, fun things. Feel free to message if you want to chat!

I thought for over 30 minutes and I just couldn't make a choice. Seriously, this is a hard nut to crack!

My favorite book is Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. It inspires me a lot. It reminds me on how to appreciate and value life even in hard times.
Because if you've found meaning in your life, you don't want to go back. You want to go forward.

- Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Anne of Green Gables! I can relate with the character so much.

Probably The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. It is one I can read over and over and get something new out of it with each reading.

Everyone is right, this is a hard question. As someone who reads voraciously, I don't think I have a favorite book. I have favorite authors across many genres, romance, sci-fi, mystery, thriller, ghost story, biographies, or any book that grabs me and won't let go. There have been very few, maybe five books, that I couldn't finish.

My favourite tends to vary yesterday, today, time of day, time of year, whether it's raining, my mood and whether I need to calm down or cheer up. I have a wall full of books and I can't let any of them go. Umm ... at the moment it's Terry Pratchett's The Truth. I'm in the newspaper business, so laugh every time. He's wicked and so spot on!
