The prompt I used today is from Let's Sketch It Challenge to draw my favorite book. That was tough, trying to pick just one. There are so many! But "Memoir Of A Geisha" made a lasting impression on me and it helped me understand more of my Japanese culture.
There are so many other works of fiction I loved including The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, King Mai by Edmond Manning.
For non-fiction, it's definitely Gödel, Escher, Bach by Doglas Hofstadter. Yes, it's an ultra-geeky book but it combines my love of math, art, and music! Plus, it will satisfy both the right and left brain hemispheres! I read this the first time in high school but really didn't appreciate this until my second read twenty years later.
I read quite a few Young Adult titles too and some of my favorites include The Outsider by S.E.Hinton, The Red Sheet by Mia Kerick, and by C.Kennedy.
What are some of your favorites?
