Which(s) book that you have read made you cry?

Only three have done it for me; The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck and Where the Red Fern Brows by Wilson Rawls. Of course I was a youngster when I read them and have either toughened up now or they just don't write books like they used to.

  • When it first came out I read The Bridges of Madison County....not only did it keep me up until 3 am to finish it, it made me sob uncontrollably to the point of a full blow migraine! The movie still does it to me too, even after seeing it so many times.
