This is the place to share your vote for the best books of all time. This is a tough one, we know. Books are like candy--they're all so good it's too hard to pick a favorite. But every once in a while a fiction book comes along that affects you so profoundly you find yourself wishing it were real.
Sometimes you have to convince yourself the characters, places, events aren't true--they seem so real. Have your every found yourself missing your book "friends" when you finish a book or series?
Here's an easy way to decide on your favorite: Just tell us about the first book that pops into your mind when you think of the words "Best Books of All Time". Your first thoughts are usually your true feelings.
Want to tell us about a book you think everyone should read, but don't really want your name on it? No problem, just use a fake name! Authors do it all the time. Do you think J.K. Rowling goes by JK? Obert Skye is not that author's real name at all. J.R.R. Tolkien definitely didn't go by "J.R.R." all the time.
Here's a List of Books to Get You Thinking
Winnie-The-Pooh by A.A. Milne
A true classic, beloved by generations. Who doesn't wish to go to the Hundred Acre Wood with Christopher Robin and his friends?
The Hobbit & The Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Tolkien does such a masterful job of creating the world of Middle Earth, it's hard not to believe it existed (or exists!) somewhere.
The Inheritance Trilogy by Christopher Paolini
Did you know that Christopher Paolini was only 15 years old when he wrote the first book in this series, "Eragon"? Amazing!
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Arguably one of the best-selling series of children's books in the world, Harry Potter has become a world-wide phenomenon. Rowling's succeeded in creating a character in Harry that children all over the world can equally identify with, envy and pity.
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
Magically crafted, beautifully told, The Goose Girl has the makings of every girl's favorite series. Princesses, princes, secrets, best friends... what more could a girl want?
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Anne (with an "e") touches some part of each of us. Her world can be cruel and unjust. She seems to find trouble wherever she goes. She has a strong will and a belief in herself, regardless of anything anyone says otherwise. And those around her, including the reader, can't help but love her.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
Did you know that C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien were good friends? You can find similar themes in both of their major works of fiction. They studied languages together after fighting in the British Army during World War One. Two best friends writing two of the best books.
