    Your One All-time favorite book

    You can only. pick. one.

    For me, I guess it would have to be "Naked" by David Sedaris. Because it was so different from everything else I had read, and made me laugh so much. I have read it so many times now.

    A close second would be "Music for Chameons" by Truman Capote. OK, I said pick one and then I just couldn't!

    More fluff than anything, I'd pick A Time to Kill by John Grisham. I sat down and read the whole thing in one day. Except for Laurie Notaro's Idiot Girls Action Adventure Club, I haven't done it since.

    Catcher in the Rye.

    Call me a 21-year-old with remaining teenage angst, if you will, but I've read it lots of times and it still gets to me.

    Hmmm, this is a hard one. I'd have to go with The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart. I read this book until the pages fell out. Ah, good times.

    The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

    The only reason I haven't read it 8 million times is because it is so huge!

    Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I'm a huge fan of strong female heroines, and Jane's story got me through a rather tough summer in high school. I figured that if she could endure 19th century British life, then i could endure my much-more-comfortable life in the 21st century.

    but the book i've read the most is Just As Long As We're Together by Judy Blume, which is the bible of my pubescence. i read it so much the cover fell off.
