I had to come back and add that I love reading the Bible. And, I am so excited by the responses to this question. I want to read all the books mentioned. And, wouldn't it be fun to live near Jamer123 when she is giving away all those books. Now, I am wondering if you give them to the homeless shelter or low income folks in your area? I just heard about a program near me that has a goal to insure that every household has books for the children to read. I had never thought about how important reading had been to me as a child.

I love reading as well. I have literally hundreds of books on a shelving wall downstairs. I average giving away about 300/ yr. Most are mystery intrigues, Rebecca York one of the authors. Also the Bible. and fun books as well. If someone wants an easy fun read, pick up "Dewey, the Library Cat". It's a true story about the library in my hometown area.

Oh Carol, What a GREAT QUESTION!!!, I love to read. I just can't wait to get to my library to pick up a copy of the book you recommend here, "Follow the River". It reminds me of a book I just read, "The Glass Castle, A Memoir" by Jeannette Walls. Also, a true story and I could NOT put it down once I started. I just couldn't believe what she had gone through and where she ended up. SO INSPIRING!!

I also just read "The boy who went to Heaven and back" . I love anything written by Pearl S. Buck. Seems like just about the only thing I don't read is Sci-Fi or scary books like what Stephen King writes. I don't like to be afraid. I am already freaked out easily.

I really like "The Secret Life of Bees". emoticon

I love biographies, history, and now and then a "simple-lite" mystery, like "Baked Bean Murders" or something like that. :)
My favorite books that I've read that I always think of are -
1. Follow the River (You have GOT to read this one, all of you, true story, unbelievable what she went thru and survived. Even my daughter who doesn't read, I "Made" her read it and once she started she couldn't put it down!)
2. Pillars of the Earth. The movie followed the story pretty close but ofcourse didn't get all the details. Very good book.
3. I also really liked Arms of Krupp- the family that kept Hitler in armaments. Without them there wouldn't have been a war. This one tho is a big, tough book to read, not simple. I need to read it again there was so much to comprehend and absorb.
