Vote in our community poll of PBS's List of 100 to select Flower Mound's favorite! You can access the poll by scrolling to the bottom of the Group Home Page, clicking on "Polls" in the menu to the right of the Group Home Page, or by following this link: https://www.goodreads.com/poll/list/1...

You only have one chance to cast your vote, so make sure it's a good one! This poll will be open through the duration of The Great American Read, which will conclude in October 2018.

Diane | 6 comments There are so many books on that list that had a significant effect on me at one time or another, it's difficult to choose just one!

Diane | 6 comments My favorite book growing up, read at an impressionable age, was A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. My mom gave me her copy, because the book impacted her, too. I still have that very old, tattered copy, and I'm going to have to pull it out and read it as an adult these very many years later to see if it still has that same impact. A favorite book should hold up no matter when you read it.

Great idea! A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is one of my all-time favorites too.

Same here, Diane! Sometimes when I re-read a book at a different phase of life, it doesn't hold up, but usually it does. I look forward to reading this one again.

I have so many favorites on this list! For me, The Alchemist is number one. It was one of those the-right-book-at-the-right-time reads for me and I'm forever grateful for it.

Terri | 1 comments The Outlander books helped me through a rough time in my life. Pure escapism ! I devoured them! I would have also wanted to vote for The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, but that book was not on the list.

BookGirl To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books. Loved it as a child, love it now!
