    I literally had to force myself to read them through. I *really* disliked them.

    I'm too noncommital to ever recall a favourite, but I really enjoyed The Age of Innocence.

    I like those period society type novels.

    Catch 22 is a predictable favourite as well, as it's tragic, funny, frustrating etc. I should revisit it.

    Well then, I must be the only person in the world who did not like the Twilight books. I only kept reading because I stupidly thought they may get better, that was a waste of 3 weeks

    Don't worry Babycake you're not alone, I refuse to even read the Twilight series because I have absolutely no interest in it whatsoever, or the movies.

    Ooh I missed off my list Memoirs of a Geisha and also Mao's Last Dancer.

    I am sure there are more I've forgotten and will remember when I get home!!

    Oh the places you'll go - Dr Seuss. (I know it's a childrens book but it is one i read as an adult - i love the message and it makes me feel inspired)

    Let no man write my epitaph - Wilard Motley. My copy is all raggedy from overuse - no idea why i love it, just do.

    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
    A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens (read it every Christmas - my funny tradition)

    All three?!?! You are a patient woman! I give a book 100 pages, sometimes one chapter if i'm really not enjoying it

    Too many good books to read to bother with ones you don't like

    The Clan of the Cave Bear series. I have loved them to death...and replaced some of the books twice when they were so well read that they fell apart.
