I like to read literature books from which I can benefit a lot. Several days ago, i finished reading one named SELECTED READINGS IN BRITISH LITERATURE. I learn many literary terms, such as allegory, ballad, epic, Romance, alliteration, bland verse, etc. I also encounter many great writers, such as Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, John Milton, etc. and their masterpices. Among all the writers, Shakespeare impresses me most. I can still recite his sonnet 18, Shall I compare thee to a summer's day. It is great!

Hi there... There are many books that I like to think are my favourites, one titled "La Prisionniere" A true story of hardship endured by a Moroccan family incarcerated for 20 years by King Hassan II of Morocco; punished for a crime committed by their father and the strength of a young girl, whom mothers, her siblings, her own mother and her own sanity as they try to survive the torment and inhumane conditions they're forced to live in. This book is one where the story grabs you and you actually start to visualise the scenes as you read on, mind you, most books do the visual thing for me... If you know what I mean... Have a great day and a great read...

My all time favorites has been the Harry Potter series and I wonder if there will be any book or series that would beat them to my favorites. And I don't think there is any need to introduce the series...about Harry Potter, is it?

One of my early favorites that I don't get tired of reading it over and over is "If Tomorrow Never Comes" by Sidney Sheldon. This is about a woman who was framed and was imprisoned and got out to take revenge on people that had wronged her. I love it because the character is so brilliant and smart and you can feel her pain.

The Little Prince is the best book I had ever read. It is a very simple fictional story about a little prince who came from another planet just to look for something that would protect her single rose who is very vulnerable. The story is being told by a person who met the little prince in the desert. In that book, you'll learn that you should appreciate things that you can see and it best describes that the most wonderful thing in life is the things that you're not seeing.

Same here, I love Gone with the Wind. I like Scarlett the most, her determination and extra strong character makes it so beautiful. Paired with Rhett, who is just like her. They're a perfect pair. You should see the movie, it's so romantic. I just can't explain it when I watch the movie. Have read the sequel, Scarlett? You should read it. It sure is great as well.

I'll say the same for you since you like Gone with the Wind as well. My hubby and I rode down to a plantation and looked around on Wednesday. We also looked at an antebellum home in Washington, GA. I took a ton of pics. They are all on my blog at http://ridetheworldover.blogspot.com I hope that you can check it out. Please let me know what you think.

I also love gone with the wind, and the book is so very much more beautifully detailed than the film. Its scarlett for me, i love how strong she is, though i don't agree with the way she went about everything, but you have to admire her. She had more children in the book too.

Boris Pasternak's Dr. Zhivago is the book i like best. I have read it twice. I haven't read more than twice cause it takes so much energy to read such a thick book. For popular novel, I like most Sheldon's works.

i cannot chose one...crime and punishment for the disturbance it gives you...old man and the sea for its simplicity and message...one hundred years of solitude for some unknown reasons...and so on...

My favorite book of all time has to be the catcher in the rye. When i read it i totally fell in love with the way salinger told stories and portrayes his characteres. I first read this book by suggestion from my english teacher. This book realy got me into reading and i have yet to find a book as good as this one.

Recently i went through the lord of the rings.indeed the movie was a masterpiece. but i found that the book was far more interesting. The book is overly long. Despite Tolkien's remark that the book is "too short," one is left with just the opposite impression.The true saving graces of this book are the astounding imagination of the author and, by his wonderful writing ability, the realization of that imagination. Those readers ready to sit and read the more than one thousand pages will, for the most part, be enthralled.

Gone with the Wind is such a great book! Have you read Scarlett or Rhett Butler's People yet? Scarlett is a great novel as well. I bought Rhett Butler's People but I haven't read it yet. Too many others to read as well :-) You would probably like a blog I just posted of a plantation and an antebellum home that my hubby and I went and visited on Wednesday. The address is http://ridetheworldover.blogspot.com I'm not sure that I can truly pick a favorite book. There are so many that I truly love. Gone with the Wind is right up there at the top. I would also have to say that anything by Philippa Gregory is also right up there at the top, but to pick just one is just too hard.

The Kite Runner is the book I am eager to read now. I like a Chinese book Xiejisheng most. I have read it for almost ten times. Every time I find I get to know something new.
