My all-time favorite book is The Feast of Love by Charles Baxter. It's incredible.

I like most of Amy Tan and Alice Walker's writing, and Alice Munro is a big favorite of mine.

Anything Isabel Allende is incredible. Most noteworthy are the House of the Spirits, Portrait in Sepia, Daughter of Fortune, and Love and Shadows. Damn they're all good.
Other favourites include:
Song of Solomon - Toni Morrison
Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez

i also just bought 6 new books, so i'll post on those as i finish. But by far, Isabel Allende is my favourite writer.

One of my all time favourites is Tom Clancy's "RAINBOW SIX". It's the best Tom Clancy novel i've read.

Another one of my favourites is in the non-fiction category and it's called: The Naked Ape, by Desmond Morris. It gives you a very good insight into the evolutionary behaviour of human beings. Recommended for all naked apes (y)

My favorite book is, hands down, To Kill A Mockingbird. I remember reading it in like ninth grade and thinking wow! Atticus Finch has got to be one of the greatest characters ever written. If you haven't read it you definitly need to.

Okay, I have read about a billion books in my life time, and could probably name a thousand that I would consider my favourite, but just this past week I read one of the greatest books ever :D. Well, at least I really liked it: My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. Ugh, I just loved, and couldn't put it down. I highly suggest it to anyone who is looking for a good book!!
