Well? I couldn't find a thread like this so I thought I'd start it, for all you book reading types out there.

Mine has to be Rage written by Stephen King under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman. It's about school shootings, it's real good you should all read it.
Gerald's Game is amazing too. As is Man and Boy by Tony Parsons. But yeah, favourite book and why?
this is my sig. there are many like it, but this is mine.

My Favourite is Smoke by Melanie Jane Banner.

Green, because a vest has no sleeves.

Can't we all just get a bong?

There's loads of these threads already.

Still, I like 'The Old Man and the Sea' by Hemingway, 'Moby-Dick' by Herman Melville and 'A Confederate General From Big Sur' by Richard Brautigan.

I'm also reading 'Middlemarch' by George Eliot at the moment and it's really good.

nonfiction, In Cold Blood (the only good nonfiction I think I've ever read)
fiction... hard to say, but right now either Of Mice and Men or 1984 come to the top of my head.

I'm currently reading The Idle thoughts of an Idle Fellow by Jerome K. Jerome, and it's easily the book I've enjoyed reading the most for a very long time. Very funny and intelligent.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
