There really is no "favorite" book that sounds out to me, currently I'm reading Acacia authored by David Anthony Durham, it's a fantasy type book, but so far a good read. I would like the Science Animal book if I am fortunate enough to be chosen.

CanCan said...

One book I really enjoyed was The Complete Tightwad Gazzette...I'm very frugal! It has tons of tips and is about 750 pages long!

Anything by Shannon Hale, especially the Goose Girl.

I'd love either book. They both would appeal to my little brood.

Thanks for the giveaway, I would love to win! nw_wife(at)hotmail(dot)com I like the book A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George

Jinxy & Me said...

My favorite book for this year is "The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan. It is very thought provoking and VERY interesting! Thanks for the giveaway!

Anonymous said...

How can a Bookaholic pick just one??? Jane Austen books are always good to fall back on when you are desperate for a good read...as are the Hornblower series by C.S. Forester. I recently reread The Count of Monte Cristo - highly recommend that too. I could go on and on...

Thanks for offering these and while it doesn't matter to us really which one...we are studying the Middle Ages right now so the castle one would be right up that alley.

my favorite books are the outlander series by diana gabaldon or anything by janet evanovich

Laura Delich said...

My favorite fiction book would definitely have to be the Christian fiction "Not My Will" by Francena H. Arnold! It's a major tearjerker! The reason that I love it is that it really portrays well the life-changing decision to follow Christ and the joys of the Christian life despite the trials.

O.K. my favorite book is A Voice in the Darkness by Francine Rivers. It's part of her Mark of the Lion trilogy, and it's really hard to pick a favorite of the three. I highly recommend anything by Francine Rivers.
I'd love to win the Internet-linked Animal World Book. We could put it to good use in our homeschool. My kids love animals and the Usborne books that we already own.
