You should! It's amazing, even though I can't understand a single thing XD The magic is in the words he creates, and the sounds. A fun read-aloud. I read a bit of his other works too, but they don't seem to be nearly as good (though Portrait of an Artist has an interesting first sentence, one of my faves)

And book or two? Which ones, might I ask?

Oh, by the way, who dat in dat prof pic? Or is it something random you took off the 'Net?

Call me Tay if ya want to.

Good choices, some of those. And some I need to read.

And yeah, it's my fave book of all time. Tied with Winnie the Pooh, Finnegans Wake and Pippi Longstocking.

Hi! To be honest, I tend not to have favorites. But right now, I'm going with:

Hunger Games
Romeo and Juliet(I love poetry!)
Emma(by Jane Austen; classics are awesome! XD)
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood

The last two make me laugh- which is why I love them so much. I haven't read books that could make me laugh nearly as much. It's a big deal when it comes from a stick in the mud.

Most of my fave books are books that made me laugh.

I don't demand much from a book, as opposed to movies or music. Which is why I often end up getting more than I bargained for. Which is NOT good, mostly.

It's hard to REALLY satisfy me with writings and books.
