  1. Gadgeteer Comment Policy - Please read before commenting
  2. Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson. I read it numerous times because I had to write about 6 different papers on it for an English class.

  3. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
    I never tire of the cynical omniscient narrative. I’ve even watched the movie half a dozen times. In my head, Martin Freeman IS Arthur Dent.

  4. Another Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy — Douglas Adams
    However, Simon Jones is always the voice I hear for Authur.

  5. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in your contest.
    My mostest favoritest book of all time is:
    “The Stand” by Stephen King.
    It’s a really big book; I’ve read it several times and plan on reading it again. The characters, the plot, the settings, the Stephen King-ism makes it my favorite work of fiction.

  6. The Bible is my all-time favorite, but in more human terms, I loved “In Cold Blood” by Truman Capote. I’m in law enforcement, what can I say?

  7. My favorite book if all time continues to be The Holy Bible (kjv) , which is the inspired Word of GOD although it has many different authors.

  8. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. Read it the first time when I was 8 and didn’t understand it. Much better now….

  9. “…a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream” … Cannery Row by John Steinbeck never grows old.

  10. Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein – an interesting view on a militarized, “democratic” society in the post-television age.

  11. “The Blue Sword” by Robin McKinley 🙂 I read it in seventh grade like ten times in a row and have read it over and over since then. Part of why I love it so much is that I wrote the author a letter and she actually wrote me back! 🙂

  12. ‘David Copperfield’ by Charles Dickens. The classic British novel, close to an autobiography. Complex plot and development of many and diverse, strong characters, who, although 19th Century, resemble many types today. While not as famous today as Dickens’ ‘ A Christmas Carol’, the book has been adapted to 11 films, plays and TV series, the last a 2000 film.

  13. All-time favorite book? An impossible dilemma; there are so many good ones! Right now? I’d guess “Dreadnought” by Robert Massie.

  14. Well, just one I liked forever (and probably not mentioned yet, lol?), and I still have it (and still with the random pen and pencil marks in it): The Big Honey Hunt – Stan & Jan Berenstain 🙂

    Thanks for this opportunity!

  15. A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

    Each time I read it I instantly feel transformed and start remembering what really matters in this life.
