everyone in the office has been talking about this list today. It’s the BBC’s top 100 books. Is your favorite book on it? How many of these have you read….and enjoyed?

I, for one, am surprised that Lord of the Rings was number 1. I could barely get through it, and i think i only enjoyed the movie because of the cast. mmm…Orlando Bloom as Legolas…

Anyway, my favorite book is Franny and Zooey. I’m not 100% sure why – it is just one of those books that speaks to me. and To Kill a Mockingbird is my #2, and it’s #6 on the list, so that’s not too bad. and I’m a big fan of #21 – Gone With the Wind.

  1. I really like To Kill A Mockingbird, and I loved all the Harry Potter books, but my all time favorite is Number 1 on this list. And a bit of trivia, Lord of the Rings was originally published as one book, it wasn’t until sometime later (I think when it came to the States, but I forget) that it was published in three different volumes.
