Again, twotontony makes an excellent point. Besides, I have read many a great book and if I were to choose only one, it wouldn't be fair to the others! That's the great thing about books. You can have a favorite in many different categories.. in fiction, in sci-fi, in non-fiction, in novels, in romances, in...... It too hard to name just one. It also depends on your age and standing in your own life. At this very moment. My favorite standby is "The Magus" by John Fowles. But I haven't read it since I was 14. So, if I were to pick it up now in my mid.. well older, I may have an entirely different opinion! Is the no toilet paper yours? or do you have to go to the bathroom?
