    OK - I know a lot of we JPiCans have "reading" written down as our favorite hobby or whatnot... So question - Have you read any good novels lately? Have you read any of the "classics"? The poll question is Which Novel Have You Read - but discussion about good books is appreciated :)

    So - I've read a few of the great classics - I enjoyed Melvilles Moby Dick :blush2: lol - really - some thought it was quite boring - but I liked it - hmmm - moving on... My favorite novel of all time has to be Janet Fitch's White Oleander - I've read it about five times actually - It's really good - The movie was horrid though...

    I was supposed to have read a few of those listed on the poll in highschool English class - never got around to 'em though - was too busy partying lol

    So what about YAWL - which ones have you read and which are your favorites?

    Jacquii.

    I have so many favorite novels it's difficult to pick my favs. but I'll make a short list on some of them,

    I loved "Roots" by Alex Haley I read that one in three days. when I was finished I turned right around and read it all again.

    I've read the Harry Potter Books except the last two. I can't wait to start "The Half Blood Prince"

    I loved the Lord of the Rings series

    I enjoyed the Jean M. Auel's "The Clan of the Cave Bear" series.

    I've read ALL of the "Little House on the Praire" books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    I have over thirty V.C. Andrews books the first one being "Flowers in the Attic"

    I could go on and on and on. but you get the idea. Lets all read a good book.

    Blessings

    Dear MsJacquii........ I have recently....just before Harry Potter 7 ...... I read "The Third Secret" by Steve Berry. This was an excellant book. Kept me riveted. It is about the Pope trying to find out about the 3rd secret and what happened to the entire message. Then when finding out.... he sends his secretary to another country where some children are also seeing the vision of the Mother of God and while he is gone the Pope commits suicide. It is an awesome story. A must read I think.

    WOW! Sounds a little risque as well - Kinda on the lines of Dan Browns Angels & Demons - but with a different motif... May have to look into getting the novel ;) Thanx for voting!

    I loved Les mis as well ASTE - Haven't read Great Expectations though :( - Possibly one day - who knows? The other novels on your list sound fabulous too - Gosh - If I could find the time to actually lay and enjoy a good book! Thanx for commenting and voting!

    Yes, Great Expectations is on the "great novels" list for sure....from when I was a teenager what stayed with me through all this time are:

    The Count of Monte Christo
    Great Expectations
    The Scarlet Letter
    Hiawatha (not a novel but an epic poem)
    Sacajawea
    Gone With The Wind!! unbelievably riveting
    Shogun!
    The Wind in the Willows
    The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes
    The Good Earth
    A Tale of Two Cities
    Ben Hur
    Nicholas Nickelby
    Oliver Twist
    ...ok, I'll stop there...yeah for books!! The most awesome entertainment!!

    More recently I haven't read as many novels...just my recently favorite authors...Nicholas Sparks, Rober Ludlum, Tanenbaum, Patterson, Tom Grisham, C.S. Lewis, and a bunch more, but I have to go find White Oleander since Ms. J highly recommends it....any more recommendations?

    John D. McDonald of Travis McGee fame. If anyone doesn't know who Travis McGee is, run to the library and find "The Deep Blue Goodbye" :) Reading is Fundamental.
