    1. Yeahhh, snowsomewhere, congratulations for being the first on here to give me your book! First I will put it in my list and when the time comes, I will read it. (Having plans to do more offline reading again when the sun burns www :D)

  1. That is an incredibly long list and I have only read a handful of them. I have a very difficult time choosing a favorite book. A few books that I have enjoyed reading: Cutting for Stone, Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Clara and Mr. Tiffany, Life of Pi, Light Between Oceans, Man’s Search for Meaning, Mudbound, Olive Kitteridge, The Angel Makers, The Blind Assassin, The Book Thief, Orphan Train, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Invention of Wings, The Silver Linings Playbook, Treasure Island!!! (by Sara Levine), The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion, A Tale for the Time Being, A Land More Kind Than Home, Pigeon English, and The Vagrants. Sorry for the long list and its lack of authors. I am currently reading: The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton.

  2. My favorite book is “A Confederacy of Dunces” by John Kennedy Toole. A madcap, hilarious yet somehow heartbreaking account of a young man’s lunatic adventures while living in New Orleans with his elderly mother. It won a Pulitzer. Tragically, the author committed suicide prior to ever realizing the fruits of his labor though his mother worked endlessly to have manuscript read and ultimately published.

  3. Fab list! Some of my favourites include: The Outermost House by Henry Beston, A Glastonbury Romance by John Cowper Powys (not really a romance, by the way), and The Razor’s Edge by W. Somerset Maugham.

  4. A very long list indeed, and including many of my favourites like Thomas Hardy’s “Return of the Native”. I have read most of his books and that is my favourite. But no Dickens? Well let me remedy that with my suggestion of “My Mutual Friend”. I shall also gift you “Cold Comfort Farm” By Stella Gibbons – a very funny parody of a form of fiction that has long been forgotten. Imagine Jane Austen in D H Lawrence country. And for the fun of language Leo Rosten’s “The Joys of Yiddish”. Enjoy

  5. Personally, I think your book list is too long. If it is supposed to be a list of your favourites, or your recommendations, then I personally would like to see a top 20. This isn’t a criticism, well done for listing and revising all these!
