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.

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.
