What's your favorite book? Mine is, "The Green Mile" by Stephen King. After watching most of the movie on a free t.v. program, I immediately wanted to read it and I think that the book is so much better than the movie.

Miss James, you worldy scholar.. that's actually 'Harper Lee' http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/results.asp?userid=Gp4KJu4A3w&ath=Harper+Lee :)

I don't read much, but Shawshank Redemption is a better film that Green Mile IMO. And a new special edition DVD is coming out Oct. 5.

My favorite classic, because it took me months to get through it, is 'The Fountainhead' by Ayn Rand.

I don't really read books, except for music related books and biographies.

I like Johnny Green's book "A Riot Of Our Own - Night and Day With The Clash". That's my favourite I'd say.

She only wrote one book, its certainly one of my favourites. The last book that I read was, A Child Called It, and I blubbed all the way through it, though I tried not to let my wife see.

My fave as well. I first read it many years ago in English class at school.

I loved "Of Mice and Men." That was the only book that has ever made me cry. Right now, I'm reading "Angela's Ashes" which is one of the most depressing books ever. It's still a great book though.

Sorry Bob, but I can't find any link between the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant and military history (if they didn't change the books). Can you explain?

I've read the Harry Potter series and think that they are great...but Green Mile was touching (even though it was fiction) to me...knowing that there must be quite a few innocent people that still get the death sentence (in limited places but still..).

"Of Mice and Men" was so short. I finished it in 3 days.
