    If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

    Single books, no series like lord of the rings. you can however pick a book from the series of the lord of the rings just no all three.

    canned answer, of course, would be a religious text of some kind, probably the Bible because you have good moral lessons, you have action, advernture, sex, poetry, history. All the good stuff :-)

    Essais by Montaigne in original French. Teach yourself French and read warm friendly philosophical essays at the same time, by the inventor of "essais"...

    I would like ready the Holy Quran...

    The Holy Quran is 1450 years, intact without any any changes since its existence.

    It is downloaded from heaven.

    That's easy! Eat, Pray, Love from Elizabeth Gilbert. A true diamant!

    Reading about a woman, finding herself after a lot of failure in life, giving others the opportunity to keep believing in love and life. A journey of recognition to me!

    Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss.  Because I am in the middle of reading it and want to know how it turns out!

    Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.  (Or maybe Kafka on the Shore by Murakami)

    I was going to say The Lord of the Rings but since you say to choose one and not all three I would have to go with The Fellowship of the Ring. These novels are the reason why I decided to become a Literature major and why I'm still obsessed with reading novels of all genres today. I've read them so many times over the years that I can't even count anymore and I'm still not sick of them.
