Playing Favourites

It seems like one of the most common profile questions on writing-related sites is “What is your favourite book?” It makes sense. After all, we are writers; we must have at least one favourite book. Of course, the more typical problem is narrowing them down. It looks like at Absolute Write I didn’t even try.

Book Country gave us five spaces. These are the five on my list:

  • The Stand by Stephen King
  • Stardust by Neil Gaiman
  • Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King
  • UFOs, JFK, and Elvis: Conspiracies You Don’t Have to be Crazy to Believe by Richard Belzar
  • The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

When I was trying to pick one for LitReactor, I also considered Watership Down by Richard Adams and The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. In the end I went with The Stand again. I tend to reread the books I really like after a couple of years, and that’s the one I’ve reread the most so far. I guess that’s as good a way to cut the list down as any 🙂
