Re: what's your favorite book, ever?
I'm going through a bit of a Heinlein phase at the moment - so a couple of obvious ones to begin with:
'Stranger in a Strange Land' and 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress'

Too many books to pick an outright favourite tho....
After Heinlein, fave authors are probably, Neal Stephenson - Douglas Adams - Terry Pratchett - George Orwell

However, if the book which has had the most use, qualifies as 'favourite ever' then mine would be a non-fiction reference book in 3 Volumes:
'Burnham's Celestial handbook'
Being an amateur astronomy hobbyist, it's an invaluable reference, and has been used almost every week, for 25+ yrs
(I'm now onto my 3rd set of copies)

The Gulag Archipelago Trilogy, by Aleksandr Solshenitsyn.

I'm glad I read it, and I never, ever want to read it again.

It woke me up.

hf Tess I have read most of those great picks!

I hated a few of those novels, but was not a huge fan of reading fiction in HS when I was forced to read them. I would probably have a different view now.

Any of Steven Kings short stories are an awesome hour read. If you want the full package, read The Stand, Misery (doesn't matter if you have seen the movie), It, and of course the gunslinger series.

Check out Tommyknockers too. The Green Mile, Pet Semetary and Cujo were a much better read than the movie. Though the Green Mile came very close to the book.
