where the writers are

Favorite Books

My favorite books are my mom's original copies of Gone with the Wind and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I love James Patterson and have all of his books and do keep those. Some recent favorites that I probably wouldn't have read had my book club not chosen them are Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. Of course, I love Wally Lamb's She's Come Undone. Lately, I have read some super books-Firefly Lane was super, and The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch is tops on my list (he was a professor while my son was in computer science at Carnegie Mellon so it makes it very special to me). I think The Miraculous Journey of Edward Toulane is a treasure and should be required reading for everyone!
