2nd five

The Good Earth

The Yearling
Bonfire of the Vanities
The Fountainhead

Oh...so many more...it should be top 25 we like
I agree, is it okay if I post more than five? From 2000+ alone I like:


1. Locker 13 (The Nightmare Room series)* by R.L. Stine
2. Ghost Hunt: True New Zealand Ghost Stories by Julie Miller
3. The Measure of All Things by Ken Alder
4. The Four Horsemen by Stephen Fry
5. The Official Pokemon Handbook #2 by Maria S. Barbo
6. The Physics Devotional by Clifford A. Pickover
7. A Wreath Of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs
8. Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
9. Money Matters by Amanda Morall
10. Eagle Strike (Alex Rider series)* by Anthony Horowitz
11. The Great Divide by Ian Wishart
12. Inferno by Dan Brown

Bold = at least 10 years old
* I am listing just my favorite book of the series instead of entering multiple books from the same series into the list. Guiness World Records 2002-2005 are excluded but I liked those four editions.

"First Person Singular" by Vida Dumas
"Lightning" by Dean Koontz
"Gone With The Wind" by Margaret Mitchell
"The Stand" by Stephen King
"Delores Claiborne" by Stephen King

Judging by how many times I've read these books...at least four times, each.

Edit: Honorable Mention: "The Summer House" by Jude Devereaux

My most favorite: Truman by David McCullough



Over a thousand pages and wished it had more. A very simple yet complicated man.
