It's one of the only classic books I like. I don't know why, I've never been able to get into books like Gone With The Wind but I loved Catcher In The Rye.

My fav. books are the ones for kids such as "Lion Boy", "Howl's Moving Castle", "A Series of Unfortunate Events" books by Lemony Snicket, some Louis Sachar's books including "Holes". And right now, I'm getting into "The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night-Time".

p.s. I bought "Gone With The Wind" a couple of years ago but never finished it... :P

I only made it about seventeen pages in and gave up. But that was a couple years ago, so maybe I'll give it another try. :)

Well actually I don't have the patience to read books but I've managed to read a few over my life, most of them biographies....so it would probally be one of Freddie's biographies "An intimate memoir" by Peter Freestone or "The difinitive biography" by Lesley-Ann Jones.

Anything really. The last one I really enjoyed was that Ben Elton book Dead Famous. I like books you can read again and again like Adrian Mole books and perhaps Harry Potter but not on public transport.

With regards to the 'zoners putting the Bible apart from force reading at school and browsing the Gideon ones in hotel rooms I have never read it all the way through and I don't intend until I'm old. Gotta have some insurance if there is something after.
