C.J. Darlington (cjdarlington) | 7 comments Piercing the Darkness by Frank Peretti! Piercing the Darkness (Darkness, #2) by Frank E. Peretti It was the first adult CF book I ever read (besides Christy by Catherine Marshall) and it blew me away!

Harriet Michael | 3 comments "Lorna Doone" Its an oldie but a goodie. Written by R.D.Blackmore, and published in 1869, it takes some getting used to because it is written in old English. But it is a great story. Talk about a plot line!

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Loved the movie, too.

Deborah Dee (goodreadscomdeborahdeeharper) | 9 comments I think I'd have to say Pride and Prejudice. I LOVED the movie with Colin Firth too.

Yes! Love that version of Pride & Prejudice. I've read the book so many times, I've lost count.

Sara, I agree! I finish a good book and think "I'm going to remember this one" so I can later recommend the title to someone who might enjoy it. Then I forget all about it when I'm into the next good book. I like that on Goodreads I can keep a list.

Darlene Franklin | 5 comments I agree, it's hard to choose my most favorite ever. But I can tell you books I have read repeatedly and would gladly do so again: Whip Hand, by Dick Francis; The Tightrope Walker by Dorothy Gillman (the author of the Mrs. Pollifax series); Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien; The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffeneger; and almost anything by C.S. Lewis.

Darlene, I've thought about reading The Time Traveler's Wife because I enjoyed the movie. A number of my friends have read and loved it. I guess it's time I did.

Darlene Franklin | 5 comments Oh, as usual, the book is far superior to the movie (be prepared for a heavy sensual element)

I love Dick Francis and Dorothy Gillman. Whenever I pick up their books, I know to settle in for awhile because I won't want to stop reading! :-)

Darlene Franklin | 5 comments Unfortunately there will not be any more new books from either writer.
Of course Dick Francis and I share the same initials. :)
