30 Day Book Challenge, Day 1

I thought this might be a neat idea to keep me writing in the blog while I work on things (reading books to be reviewed, writing blurbs, etc). Usually these are done on Facebook or Tumblr, but I am going to turn it into a blogging endeavour.

Day One: Your Favorite Book

Wow, they don’t start small, do they? This is a question I like to avoid, or answer with multiple titles. I don’t like to be tied down to one book. In fact, my heart rate is jumping a bit just thinking about trying to pick only one now.

But, if I had to pick one, I would go with…

The Book of Paradox by Louise Cooper

I can’t really remember WHY I love this book so much, but I remember that it was one of the first ones I read with real voracity. It is a small book, only a couple hundred pages long, but I wrote many separate book reports on it in my senior year of high school. I know that I thought the book was superbly written, and I need to re-read it in the next little while to see if it still holds that special place at #1 for me.

How about you, what is your favorite book?

  1. WP –

    Great post. I haven’t read that one, but it may find its way on my list at some point. I am still resolved to go with James’ Allen’s As A Man Thinketh as my all-time favorite. It has nothing to do with fantasy, though. It’s more philosophy and it’s ultra short, but pithy. That’s one of the reasons I love it so much.
    If we’re talking spec. fic, ooh there are just too many to list. I’ll leave three for now.
    1. Eye of the World – Robert Jordan
    2. Ready Player One – Ernest Cline
    3. The Hobbit – Tolkien (these books are not in order of most favorite).
    Thanks for the post.

    • You know, I have never read Tolkien’s work. I am a horrible fantasy fan. They have been on my TBR list for forever, but I haven’t made time for them.

      Ready Player One is fantastic. I can’t wait until tomorrow so I can finish it. And Robert Jordan has always had a special place in my literary heart, because his was the first epic fantasy I ever read. My copy of Eye of the World is falling apart!

      I haven’t heard of the other one you mentioned, but I might need to take a peek for it at the library.

      As always, thanks for commenting!
