Top Ten Favorite Books

A recent post at a website I frequent asked the question, "what is your your top ten favorite books of all-time?" It got me to thinking what my favorites would be. And what makes something a favorite, rather than just an enjoyable one-time read?

So here're my favorites (in no particular order--definately subject to change):

  1. Pride and Prejudiceby Jane Austen
  2. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein
  3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  4. The Complete Works of Shakespeare (my personal favorites being
    Much Ado about Nothing and The Taming of the Shrew)
  5. Persuasion by Jane Austen
  6. Beauty or The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley
  7. The Mrs. Pollifax series by Dorothy Gilman
  8. Adopted Jane - Helen F. Daringer
  9. Love Lights the Way - Michele Ashman Bell
  10. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
