Day 04 - Your favorite book

I don't even have a frame of reference for tackling this one. The concept of "favorite" book just bounces right off my brain. There are just way too many to choose from. So here's a few:

The Phantom Tollbooth - I adore this book. Every last word of it makes me smile

The Two Princesses of Bamarre - Makes me cry every.single.time

Dragon Singer - My first introduction to Pern, so it has sentimental value

The Poisonwood Bible - Not without its flaws, but the only book I've read that pulled off the "more than one narrator" trick with any believability

Black Thorn, White Rose - Like Dragon Singer, this was my first introduction to a series. It was also the first book I ever read that I didn't put down without immediately thinking, "I could have written that"

I haven't read any of her other books. What would you recommend?

Animal Dreams and High Tide in Tucson (which is a collection of essays) both were really good reads. I really like how place plays a very strong role in her writing--the place is so intimately tied in to the stories she tells. (As in Poisonwood Bible, too, of course.)
