    My favorite book is The Fountianhead by Ayn Rand. I love this story because it's about a guy who believes in himself, regardless of what "popular" opinion might be.

    My favorite book is "Interview With a Vampire" by Anne Rice. She is my favorite author, for vampire fiction as well as her other awesome volumes like "The Witching Hour" and "Feast of All Saints"

    Her writing changed my life because instead of staying a prissy "tween", I became a goth. I kept my "double life" a secret until I got out on my own after high school and played in the goth world for the next 15 years. It still makes me smile when I think of how some of those adventures were the best times of my life. And today, I love it that Anne Rice is active on Twitter and interacts with her fans.

    I've got one that not many people have heard of, but it comes in sort of along the lines of Ayn Rand's libertarian works... It's called 'Unintended consequences' by John Ross; a novel that looks at history from a very particular perspective and follows it to a rather startling conclusion. Don't try to buy it from Amazon; their prices for it are outrageous. You can usually find it at gun shows, though, and it's well worth the 30.00 price. Don't look for it at libraries, though.... they won't carry it, as it's very unfriendly/embarrasing to government types.

    Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. It's about being the best you can be and to never compromise regardless of the insanity going on around you.

    Water for Elephants - excellent! Too much to say about this one so I won't even begin. Check it out at Barnes & Noble. "All That Matters" by Jan Goldstein a quick read with an unexpected lesson of hope in every day. "The 13th Tale" by Diane Setterfield. Reclusive serial author now wishes her bizarre story to be told. Give em a try and let me know what you think.

    I'm with curvygirl - I love To Kill a Mockingbird. It's moving and amazing and timeless.

    "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. Atticus Finch is one of the best literary heroes of all time. He is wise and kind, more of an anti-hero really. A man willing to do what he thinks is right no matter what the odds are against him. Add Gem, Scout and Boo Radley - it's a true American classic for a good reason.

    I love the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik; everything I've read by Guy Gavriel Kay; Lamb by Christopher Moore; The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley; The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien; Dune by Frank Herbert; Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by CS Forester; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by CS Lewis...

    Oh, and comic books.

    I'm a fan of a lot of different genres. Anything that captures my imagination is fair game.

    I LOVE the "In Death" series!!! However I think the earlier books were the best in the series. Could it be the sexual tension you can cut like a knife?? :) Could be!!! Great call! I will look into the other series you are talking about... Against the wall... sounds fun.


    The J.D. Robb ones? Love those!! I absolutely love LOVE "Kushiel's" series by Jaqueline Cary and the Meredith Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton. Hmm...I could go on and on!

    My all time fav is The Color Purple. I love Ms Celie. I'm a big fan of historical romances by Beverly Jenkins. She really knows how to tell a heated story. I'm also a huge fan of J. California Cooper all of her short stories, especially Wild Stars Seeking for Midnight Sun. And I love Sharon Ewell Foster, Christian Fiction Writer.

    My favorite book is
    Surfing the net by JC Herz

    The book that got me started onto the online world and even began me into the world of computer hacking,etc but then intergrated myself into the online world :)

    Then my second favorite book is The Zombie Survival Handbook :)
    What can I say? If the dead rise, I am prepared to organize :)
