Getting to Know You: Favorite Book

It seems like an obvious thing, right? We're here because either we write books or we're the subject of one. That said, what's your favorite book?










What is it that you like about your favorite book? Is it a character that you love, or a special theme that speaks to you? Is it written in a style that takes your breath away?

Let's talk about our favorite books today!

Ooh, I'm first today?! How exciting!

Well, I'd have to say my favorite book will always be The Hobbit. Marybeth Littleton read it to me when I first stumbled into the Hollow as an adolescent, and I've loved it ever since.

Morning, Devi! How goes it in the Hollow?

I like The Hobbit, too, but my favorite book is probably My Side of the Mountain. Gave me hope that I could also survive in the wilderness, which I'm kind of doing now. Course, I'm not all alone like Sam was. It helps to have Indy with me.

Indigo Cypress said...

Thanks, Meg! I couldn't do it without you either.

Kalila said...

My favorite book is any that I'm the subject of. What a silly question!

Ricky said...

I read a lot of books relating to my business - marketing and music books, mainly, but when I want something more like a beach read, I pick up a rock star memoir.

Absolute favorite, though? Candide. I like satire. And a good thing, too, or Kalila and her crew would drive me nuts.

Kalila said...

What's that supposed to mean, Ricky?

Never mind, Kalila. It's...good. Really. Trust me.

Aidan said...

Um. Yeah. I'm not much of a reader.

Aidan said...

Um. Yeah. I'm not much of a reader. Ask Kae, I guess.

Kaelin said...

A book called "The Art of War." But it's a private Sentinel archive. You probably mean human books. Too many to really name, I suppose.

Thrillers amuse me.

Devi Marconi said...

Oh, right. Of course. My mistake.

What I meant to say was Hollow Souls, my author's book. Thanks, Kalila, for putting me straight.

I haven't read anything much except history text books for a bit... and music magazines - but hey-up to be getting back to my Kerrang and NME is major because that was so my life before.
Anyway, I'm reading now. This author came to our school - not sure if the book wasn't published on her own printing press but - she wrote a book called The Waterhouse Girl. It's about image and how people see you and stuff. This author, Sue Hampton, had like long flowy, dark hair until she took it off. Like... OMG... alopecia. Imagine, like, living like that and dealing. RESPECT.

My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, even though at times it makes me ashamed of myself for being such an uncouth modern woman. It seems so lovely to think that there was a time when people really were so genteel and civilized. We seem to have gone backwards, socially.

Christine H said...

I have too many favorites to name just one. That's like asking a person to pick their favorite flower in a whole garden of blooms!

Christine H said...

I love that photo, Ann. Can I borrow it?

bunnygirl said...

Christine: Sure, you can use any of the photos I've posted.

Laura Martone said...

Yep. It sure is a loverly photo. Makes me want to go hide in a library somewhere... and surround myself with stacks of books.

Devi Marconi said...

Just come visit me in Ruby Hollow - we have a glorious library here.

Laura Martone said...

Don't I know it, Devi? Why do you think I wrote it that way?
