    What is your favourite book of all time?

    To be honest, I can't even answer this one myself. There are too many to choose from!

    One book that has always stuck in my mind decades after having read it just once was The Cross and The Switchblade by Wilkerson and Sherril. This is based on pastor David Wilkerson's true story when he worked with New York city kids to get them away from drugs and violence. This book was released in 1962 and in 1970 a movie was made around this story starring Pat Boone. I don't remember the movie well, but I do remember the book.

    For me, "To Kill A Mockingbird," was probably the greatest book of the 20th century. Being a resident of the south, gives you a better perspective of just how the events that unfolded in the book could really take place. Harper Lee did an outstanding the characters, without a lot of supercilious details that added nothing to the book. The sad part about the book, is that those events could actually happen today. We have made progress, but not nearly enough.

    Second place is "The Old Man and the Sea,"  not only is it an interesting book, but its short length makes it great for that book report due on Monday. I wrote book reports in junior high, high school and college. I re-read the book each time and found new meaning with maturity. It tells a very good story of determination and acceptance.

    Anything written by Bill Bryson... The light-hearted, comedic quality to his writing is a wonderful escape from every-day life.

    Jeaninene Frost novels. I'm addicted to her characters that seem to leap off the page and into my heart.
