message 1: by Debbie (new)

Debbie i'm not sure how i could live without books that would be torture



message 2: by ChaosInGa (last edited Aug 26, 2008 02:42PM) (new)

ChaosInGa Why are there barely any books written by people of color on this list? (Just an observation, no-very little-judgment)


message 3: by Slaiman (new)

Slaiman Too many Books on this list that i would be happy to live without


message 4: by Heather (new)

Heather A life without books, is like living in the attic with the light off.


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

I agree with you Heather & Lily :)


message 6: by [deleted user] (last edited Mar 27, 2009 05:02PM) (new)

I couldn't live without books. That would be horrid.


message 7: by Terry (new)

Terry Smith If I could only have one book to read, it would be Fool by Christopher Moore because it is witty and makes me laugh each time I read it. It would be hard to live w/o laughter.


message 8: by Marina (new)

Marina Love most of the books on this list!


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I believe I own a copy of every book I listed and some I have 2 copies as I fear losing one!

I have to agree. Well, Fool or Lamb. Neither of those get old.


message 11: by Breanne (new)

Breanne Tiger saga all the way :)


message 12: by Lacie (new)

Lacie I've only read a hand full of the books on this list. And the ones I haven't read look horrid! I know that you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but it's seriously hard not to. And I definitely agree that a life without books is super dull. I've tried to banish books before and I felt like I was slowly dying of boredom!

It's possible to judge today's books like that, but classics just didn't have the technology to create beautiful covers, so it's really the inside that counts :)


message 14: by Lori (new)

Lori Hm. For me, it seems to be biographies and autobiographies; those are mainly the ones that get more than one read from me. Also, I have a collection of books on the plague. My series books on Acorna the Unicorn Girl and the three-book series following that. My Witches of Eileanan series books and the following three Rhiannon Rides. Michelle Sagara Cast In series, Lisa Shearin's Raine Benares series...and e.v.e.r.y. s.i.n.g.l.e. book written by or about the Ramones.
