What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time?

Loads, to be honest.  20, off the top of my head, in no particular order:

  1.  The Fountainhead – Ayn Rand
  2. The Catcher In The Rye – J.D. Salinger
  3. We Need To Talk About Kevin – Lionel Shriver
  4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – J.K. Rowling
  5. The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien
  6. A Clockwork Orange – Anthony Burgess
  7. The Road – Cormac McCarthy
  8. Disgrace – J.M. Coetzee
  9. The Client – John Grisham
  10. Where are the Children – Mary Higgins Clark
  11. The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
  12. Macbeth – William Shakespeare
  13. A Fine Balance – Rohinton Mistry
  14. 1984 – George Orwell
  15. Lust For Life – Irving Stone
  16. To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee
  17. Schindler’s Ark – Thomas Keneally
  18. The Boy In The Striped Pajamas – John Boyne
  19. The Faraway Tree series – Enid Blyton
  20. Peter Pan – J. Barrie

Wow! I started off planning to have three, then before I knew it, I had eleven, and then, in the blink of the eye, it was twenty! I think this is not only a list of some of my favorite books, but also books that I honestly believe have changed my life in some way or the other. 

So, how about you?

    I’m ashamed of my list after that..
    Thanks for visiting.

    Gatsby is one I’ve read a few times.

  4. 4 Nise'

    I’ve got some of those on my TBR pile!

  5. Wow, that was a very nice list. I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read any of the books on your list(yet).

    I regret a little about my BTT choice because it might be better as a re-read than reading it for the first time again. I have actually never read about Winne The Poo, only seen the cartoons. Maybe I ought to read it?

    Here is my BTT post.
