    Yep. He did. The mother took it to a professor, all in pieces. That book is so good and so funny-as if he put everything he had to give in it. I wonder if he would have been another Harper Lee anyway.

    Northern Lights trilogy by Phillip Pullman is one I've loved now for several years. First book to make me ACTUALLY cry whilst reading it. Fabulous story and ideas. I think my daemon would be something crap like an Aardvark, even though I'd like a panther or a cat or something.

    The Autobiography of Malcolm X. Read that book so many times that the pages are falling out. And sometimes I reread the books by James Patterson. Especially the ones that have his character Alex Cross.

    I'm another James Patterson fan. A friend gave me the first of the Alex Cross books years ago. A wonderful character ... when the first movie came out I was a bit gutted that they cast Morgan Freeman as Alex. I love Morgan Freeman but he just wasn't Alex Cross.

    Another book I really love is How Stella Got Her Groove Back. I read it the first time when pregnant with my son. I pick it up when I feel a bit low, Stella cheers me up!

    Does periodically referring back to non-fiction books count?! I love keeping a lot of how-to, and informational books on my shelf.

    Re-reading a book is something I don't want to do most of the time, because it's like re-visiting a far away country - there are just so many more to go to!

    But I do re-read Owen Meany and The God Of Small Things, cause they're just so enchanting.

    Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchet is amusing everytime I read it.
