Yes, "Of Mice and Men" is exceptional. But I think my favorite book I ever read would be "The Butterfly Revolution". It's kind of a ripoff of "The Lord of the Flies", but I think it's actually better than the latter.
My favorite author would have to be S.E. Hinton though. I've read all of her books, including "The Outsiders", and I really enjoy her work.
But of course, my favorite RECENT books would be the Harry Potter novels. They are excellent ( for lack of a better word). They deserve all the hoopla that has surrounded them.

Oh man...pick just one? When I was younger it was S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders." Now...I'd have to go with "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo, "The Pledge" by Rob Kean, or Shakepeare's "Othello."

Hmm, yeah, I like "Of Mice and Men" but my favorites are "Midnight Magic" by Avi, and "Whispers from the Dead" By Joan Lowery Nixon.
On April 24, 2008 Kaley and I are going too meet in LA, and hancuff ourselfs too Nancy McKeons car, or better yet her! And your not! Were also gonna find Jay Harrington too.
Teddy: Be honest with me, not my parents!
Jinny: All right, fine. You want honesty? Why don't you let me tell you a little bit about my family? See, I never really had a birthday party unless you wanna count my 15th, when my father showed up for cake, plastered in his underwear! Oh, yeah, by the way, my mom couldn't make it that year either because, well, sadly, six months earlier she blew her brains out!!!!!
Teddy: Jinny, my God.
Jinny: As for my brother, uh yeah, John... see, he just doesn't like you unless your American, white, and straight! and for me, a few weeks ago when I had that nut case after me... yeah, I had to make a little list, of all the guys that I've slept with in the last two years. I couldn't remember some of their names.
Teddy:Stop! What are you...
Jinny: Ya know what? This is who I am, THIS IS MY FAMILY!!!! Come on, it's your turn. You go ahead, flash that all-American, prep school, choir boy smile and you tell me that it doesn't matter! *long pause* Yeah... Thats what I thought.
