Question of the day.

Hey guys! πŸ™‚

What is a book that you would recommend to everyone?

My answer:

We’ve had a similar question as far as I can see somewhere on My Inner MishMash, but just in case someone else would like to recommend something, or maybe some of you who have commented on that old post have other ideas I decided to ask in this form once again. For me, as I wrote in that old post, it seems quite a hard task to recommend a book for just about everyone, because we all have so different tastes and we all want different things from the books we read, so I will repeat my recommendation from that post. I think a very universal book, that could have the potential to appeal to many very different people, could be the “Chicken Soup For The Soul” series by Jack Canfield. I haven’t read all books in that series myself but I have read some, and I know many people have and it’s well liked in different countries, so I think it’s a nice pick.

How about you? πŸ™‚

  1. What a fun question! Hmm, to everyone? I see what you mean about how it would have to have a general interest! I’ve never read the Chicken Soup books, but maybe I’ll check them out!

    Hmm…. gee, tough question! I’ll go with “Boy’s Life” by Robert R. McCammon. It has something for everyone: action, adventure, childhood nostalgia, magic, fantasy, murder mystery, etc. Great book!! Aside from one scene that really upsets me.

  2. The Outsides by S.E. Hinton. It reflects the class struggles that have always been a part of being a teenager and that good people can do bad things and still be good at the core.

      1. My ex bf (long before the donor) requested I read “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.” He had a copy so I read it. And some of it rang true. Some of it sounded like a man trying to justify men being sexist pigs. They are wired differently therefore women need to make allowances, yet it says, we too, think differently but as it is based on female emotion rather than male logic, it’s illegitimate.
        I hated that book and read him the riot act for thinking it would remotely appeal to my feminist side. But hey, the book sold a gazillion copies so what do I know.
        Oh right, I know I don’t want a partner of either gender who thinks I am a maid while they do nothing. Gender roles are so ancient, it’s an insult they are still used even by 70 year old men programmed to view it that way.
        This is why I stick to fiction. Non fiction tends to send me on a tirade even 20 years after the fact πŸ˜‰

  3. “To Kill A Mockingbird”. Although the language could be perceived as dated (it is) and racist (it is), the underlying story and the beauty of the point of the story is timeless. Which is why it’s a true classic and a GREAT read.
