What a sweet bookmark! Because I love to read, I can never have too many bookmarks! I have so many, many favorites, however the one book I read again and again is "September" by Rosamunde Pilcher. And yes, I do read it every September! Have a fun Sunday!

Can you believe that I'm an avid reader, yet do not own a decent bookmark? I'm tired of using Post-Its and the inserts out of magazines!

My favorite book recently has been Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. What's marvelous is that See interweaves fiction with historical events for a very gratifying story. She does this in most of her books, actually. Snow Flower is a story for all women who have ever loved a best friend dearly. I gave my mother a hardback copy for Christmas. :) It's a New York Times Best-Seller. Read more on it here: http://www.lisasee.com/snowflower.htm

Brianna Phelan said...

Beautiful bookmark and all the best with these upcoming changes in your life.

My favourite book is The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood. This book made me know 100% that majoring in Enflish was the right move for me. it's strange and odd and comical, serious, eloquent and honest all at the same time. It's thought provoking, but playful as well. It inspires me to write.

Thanks for such a generous giveaway.

Cynthia said...

My favorite is To Kill a Mockingbird for a classic and anything by Faye Kellerman for modern.

nima said...

Candes said...

I am a huge fan of anything Nicholas Sparks & being from eastern NC makes his books even more special because I can just read & know exactly where he is talking about. I suggest you get a big box on tissues before reading or even watching the movies.

Hannah said...

Gorgeous bookmark. My favorite book of all time is Great Expectations or The Bell Jar or ... well, there are too many. haha



Paula said...

I love reading trashy romance novels to kill the time. Anything by Nora Roberts really. It's light, happy, easy to read and digestable in little chunks. Not too much thinking involved...lol

This bookmark is beautiful. I love to read when I have the time. My favorite author is Catherine Coulter. I love the authentic historical data in her books and that she takes her characters through several books. I also enjoy her FBI series. I would recommend any of her books.

I just got the Time Traveler's Wife and so far it's very good.

I would love to give you a list of recommended books... got a year? :) For now let's just say that Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice tops the list for favorite book of all time. Her wit is undeniably charming and the way she illustrates characters in many walks and levels of life is enlightening.

Nicole D. said...

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb is one of my favorites. A great coming-of-age story. Thanks!

Jolynn said...

One of my favoite books is Journey Of Promise By Joann Arnold. I like it because it is exciting and intense, without being gory!

Jolynn said...

Oooops! forgot my email

Sherlyj said...

I really liked Life and Death in Shanghai, it's a powerful story about a woman who is jailed under the Cultural Revolution in China and survives. Her story is incredible. Another I'd recommend is Into Thin Air about a journalist who climbs Mt. Everest. Haven't finished yet, but it's really good so far. daydreamsinbubbles(at)hotmail(dot)com

lorides said...

My favorite book is "She's come undone" Pretty bookmark certainly better than dog earing the pages.

Heather! said...

I read *Siddhartha* by Hermann Hesse a few times a year. It's a short book so makes for a quick read, but I really enjoy it every time. It's a great story, and also tells the story of the Buddha and how he Awoke. Totally recommend it!

Another book that isn't necessarily my favorite, but I was talking about today is *Clan of the Cave Bear*. This book, and the subsequent books in the series, are so easy to get lost in! They make for a great escape!

Good luck and be safe!

Very pretty bookmark. Anything by James Patterson is good and fast to read. But my favorite book is a very old book entitled In the Shadow of Man by Jane Goodall. It was rereleased again a few years ago I think.

Be safe during your deployment.

My favorite book is Fields of the Fatherless by Tom Davis. Very powerful little booko that is an easy read.


Deborah said...

My favorite book is "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood. I thought it was a plausable story and that something like it could actually happen in my lifetime. asthenight at gmail dot com

buzzd said...

I have so many favorites. Hmm..I just read the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson and though it is geared for young adults..I loved it as it was full of adventure and action and of course Max had to save the world.

Georgia Mist said...

Favorite book was "Three Weeks with My Brother" by Nicholas Sparks. First, Sparks is just a great writer. Second, I loved this book because it reminded me of my childhood with my 2 brothers.
