What is the best book you've ever read?


Post a comment

I used to think it was "Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck, but I've read so many good books since then that I can't zero in on one. I love Jane Austin novels, because of the picture they give of English society during that time.

I like historical fiction; you get a good story, combined with a glimpse of what it's like to live in another era.

I do like Tolkien's novel's, too, of course. I like to read a book and then go see the movie. The "Lord of the Rings" series was amazing!
