      If you want to have fun try the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evonovich "One for the Money" is the 1st in the series.  If you want to be on the edge of your seat try Thomas Perry's Vanishing Act--about a part native american woman who guide people out of danger and into a new life by giving them new identities.  Vanishing Act is the 1st in a series of Jane Whitefield books.  Anything by Robert Fulghum is not only fun but funny.  You will laugh until your side hurt.

      The Grapes of Wrath is hands down the best book I have ever read!

        I still look forward to it. There are so many books that I haven't read.
        You read different things when you are bored. You read different things for knowledge and wisdom. You again read others for bed reading, to fall asleep. There are so many of them, that's not even written yet!
        Go to the library, don't waste your money.

    Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon. The writing is beautiful and Pynchon seems to be an expert on just about everything, from world history to complex mathematics. I could read this book 5 times and still not understand half of the references, but love it anyway.

    You know . . . I just don't like most of the classics.  They take too long to read and the language is too stilted and proper.  The stories have all kinds of meanings and tend to be very serious.

    Honestly, I don't like anything serious.  I read books to get away to fantasy worlds where amazing things happen.  If a book is too dark or contains suffering I won't read it.  Real life has plenty of that. wink

    I like reading books for fun.  That said, the best book I've ever read isn't just one book.  I like series of books.  The best story I've ever read is David Edding's Belgariad and Mallorean.  They are interesting and the characters are colorful and likeable.
