    Oooh! Oooh! Pick Me!!!! My favorite book has been The Scarlet Pimpernell since about 7th grade. I read To Kill A Mockingbird recently and fell in love with that book too though… I would definitely call it “a favorite”.

  2. Ryan Strong says:

    My current favorite read is Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. It is hands down the best Fantasy trilogy I have read to date. Awesome characters, fantastic plot, and absolutely stellar fight scenes. Thank you for your consideration.

  3. rockstarma says:

    I really enjoyed Watership Down. Wow, I wish I could write that good.

  4. ModernMom says:

    I visited their site and “Love is Hell” looks like an interesting read to me!! By Scott Westerfeld, Melissa Marr, Justine Larbalestier, Gabrielle Zevin, Laurie Faria Stolarz

  5. Nicole says:

    So, I thought I’d entered this…but I did not. So much for having a brain these days.

    I really like the book “Travels with Charley” by John Steinbeck. It’s about how he took off on a road trip sometime with his French poodle Charley to get to know America. Having done the drive myself a few times, I can relate to a lot of it. Simple, short, and kind of like listening to an articulate grandparent tell you stories from their past.

  6. Sarah says:

    One of my favorite books is “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak is now one of my all-time favorite classic books. He makes the tragedy bearable while still getting you the meaning. It is such a wonderful story of overcoming and family and love.

  7. Debbie says:

    My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

  8. Debbie says:

    Deadline by Chris Crutcher sounds like a book that I should read.

    I’d like to read “Evernight” by Claudia Gray, because it sounds like it’s similar to the Twilight series, by Stephanie Meyer.

  12. Debbie says:

    The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening and The Struggle by L. J. Smith seems interesting, also along the lines of Twlight.

  13. Debbie says:

    As You Wish by Jackson Pearce sounds like a book that I would like. Even though these books are for teens, I think I would really enjoy a lot of them!

  14. Debbie says:

    Snap by Carol Snow sounds like an interesting book.

    Can you tell I want to win this giveaway? My husband mentioned this book a couple months ago to me, and he’s been wanting me to get it for him, and this would be perfect!

  15. Debbie says:

    A Troubled Peace by L. M. Elliott sounds like a captivating book to read.

    Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani seems like an interesting book.

  18. Jim says:

    I have always liked science fiction / fantasy, and Robert Heilein was one of my earliest favorites. He wrote a phenomenal book called “Citizen of the Galaxy” that my young imagination thrilled to over and over. I can’t imagine why I don’t own that book. Maybe I will treat me for my birthday and order a copy.
