This is the Question of the Day at Livejournal. Because it is book-related, I might as well crosspost it here.
There are four books on my shelf that meet this description:
- The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
It is the easiest of the Tolkien books to read, methinks. And I enjoyed it the most. I love the trilogy but I find myself huffing to finish the Frodo parts while zooming past the Aragorn parts. I like the Aragorn parts better, yes. But with The Hobbit, it is even classified under children’s literature! I enjoy all of it every time I read it.
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
My favorite book of all time. I still get the chills every time I read it. It is such a beautiful piece of literature.
- Generation Kill by Evan Wright and One Bullet Away by Nathaniel Fick
I have gone over and over about these books. You know I love them. OBA is the perfect co-read to GK so if you plan to get one, get the other also.
I would put a Harry Potter book here but I prefer reading in sequence. So if I want to read say, Azkaban (my favorite of the series), I would have to read either Chambers and/or Goblet too. Same with LOTR, that’s why I almost never re-read FOTR. Yeah, it’s a quirk.
