can you choose one book to last you a lifetime?

if you could honestly choose only one book to read, for the rest of your life, what book would that be? i'm the kind of reader who can read certain books over and over again. one book that i've read several times is called 'the bone people' by keri hulme. it's a book set in new zealand about a loner who lives in a tower by the sea who suddenly finds a young mute boy and his stepdad thrust into her life. i recommend it to everyone when the talk turns to books! that would be my pick. what's yours?

I don't think I have a book that I love that much. I've read some good ones, but I'm not sure there's one I could read over and over. I love the books I read as a little kid, like "The Giver," "Crazy Lady," and "James and the Giant Peach." I especially loved "The Giver." If you've never read it, I won't tell you what it's about. I think everybody should read it at least once. Maybe that would be my one book, lol.

Wow..that is tough to pick. There are so many books that I enjoy rereading, depending on my mood. I would say one that I wouldn't mind reading over and over would be Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. Her great philosophical novel has great characters, tension-filled plotlines, and though-provoking ideas. I love the different speeches delivered by certain characters in the book. I think, if I'm force to choose one book, Atlas Shrugged would be a top contender.
