I'd love to hear what some of your all-time favorite books and authors are. What keeps your nose in a book like my daughter here?
Leave them in the comments. I read and love a wide variety of books and there are so many out there that I still don't know about.
Here's my short list in addition to last week's new love.
Jane Austen: Persuasion/Pride and Prejudice
Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Crime and Punishment
Chaim Potok: The Chosen/My Name is Asher Lev
Leon Uris: Exodus
Elizabeth Gaskell: North and South/Ruth
JK Rowling: Harry Potter Series
Richard Peck: A Long Way from Chicago/A Year Down Yonder
Sarah Dessen: Just Listen/The Truth About Forever
Khaled Hosseini: A Thousand Splendid Suns
Orson Scott Card: Ender's Game
Shannon Hale: Princess Academy/Rapunzel's Revenge
Robin McKinley: The Blue Sword/Dragonhaven
I'm going to have to make myself stop. I keep feeling like I'm leaving something very important out. For those I included I wouldn't allow myself to list more than 2 titles per author so just know there's a lot more.
Y'all had to know my short list would not be very short. I could also include all those Latin and French faves, but I will spare you.
