  • Christy, by Catherine Marshall. It's the true story of her mother's life I believe around the turn of the century. Her mother came from a fairly comfortable background and as a young girl she went to teach school in the smoky mountains. It's an amazing story, in fact they later made it into a tv series. I loved the book when I read it in high school, and have read it several times since.

  • So many to choose from--------------------------------- but I think my all time favorite is Gone With the Wind. Love the characters, the history, the description, the action, the plot, etc. Hated for it to end even though it was 1000+ pages.


    "Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo. I read the abridged version in high school, and the unabridged last year. I grew up listening to the Broadway rendition as well, lol."  Just started reading it bandgeek521, so I may change my mind.  I know my dad loved it.

  • Oxford English Dictionary. I'd love to have the unabridged, but mine is the Concise. I've had my copy for more than 20 years, and I LOVE flipping through it and finding surprising things... like the pronunciation guide for 'viz.'

    Viz is pronounced 'viz'... or 'namely.'

    Seriously. I thought I'd never stop laughing about that one. Oh, or the other one: the derogatory term for a twit or idiot 'berk'... which is cockney rhyming slang, Berkshire Hunt.... which rhymes with...

    Ha ha ha ha. I love it!

  • Jane Eyre. I read it when I was in the 8th gr. and I still have the book. Haven't read it in years but I've never forgotten it.
