Depends on if you like horror, sci fi, courtroom drama, whatever.

I have alot of favorites. Most of them are Star Wars books anyway.

The “His Dark Materials” trilogy by Philip Pullman. As a bonus, if you read them now you’ll be caught up and ready for the TV show whenever HBO decides to premiere it.

but, Watership Down

Not sure we want to expand a posting from a banned member. I’m sure we have other favorite book threads.

Second person banned after a single innocuous post in two days. Something about banned members re-registering under new names?

My favorite book is Weaveworld by Clive Barker. I've read it at least 10 times, it never loses its bizarreness.

After a quickie search, the last thread on the topic hasn't been touched for ten years, so my thought is to ignore the thread starter here and just go with it.

Hard to claim I have a favorite book, but ever since I read it a few years ago Contact by Carl Sagan is the one book I eagerly want to go back and reread. I guess it's my favorite until another favorite comes along.

Ten years? Wow! Surprising for such a busy forum.

I already answered on the sly, but definitely my favorite novel is Watership Down, followed very closely by The Hobbit, then The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

If we’re following the meaning of “book” to include more than just novels or fiction, then I’d have to choose the Bible, and it’s eclectic mix of poetry and prose and instruction.

Tough call, but one that springs to mind without much prompting is Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance. What an exquisite read!
