Not really clear on this one... a fiction book I like? a fiction book I'm reading?
Just for good measure, I'll answer both...
I have mentioned my favorite book, Steinbeck's East of Eden. Well, a close runner up is Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird.
I never read this in school. I actually read it for the first time a few years ago as part of the local library's annual reading campaign. Like a city-wide book club. Anyways, I loved it! I was so ticked that we never read it in school, in favor of some of the crap we had to read. (I'm looking at you, Ethan Frome...)
On to a fiction book I am reading now, that would be Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged.
Tough read, but I'm up to it. When I have to time to read. Between making Caleb's costume, making felt s'mores, candy corn wreaths (more on that later) and a birthday present for a certain little girl. (I'll share that later, too.) Really, though, so far, I'm liking it.
