30 Days About Me Day 4: I was to think of these days many times.

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: August 5, 2011 | Categories: Books, Favorites, Health and Fitness, Series

30 Days About MeWow, it's day 4 of my 30 Days About Me challenge. If you've been reading along, I've joined in the fun started by Toni over at A Daily Dose of Toni. I've enjoyed revealing more about me and especially loved learning more about my fellow bloggers.  And it's not too late to join this meme.


Today's topic is – my favorite book. I'm an avid reader. I have been as far back as I can remember. Reading is a passion of mine. I will admit to not having the time (or taking the time) to read as much as I used to… but I read every chance I get. Today's topic is actually a little bit easier for me. Now, I do have a lot of favorite books, but I can actually name just one that is my all-time favorite.

Before I reveal my favorite book ever, here are a few I enjoyed and/or left an impression on me:

  • A Clockwork Orange
    by Anthony Burgess
  • As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner
  • Just about anything by Stephen King
  • Just about anything by Dean Koontz
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  • A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
  • Bram Stoker's Dracula
  • Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
  • The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
  • The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller

Okay, I really could go on and on. But I've tortured you enough. Now for my all-time favorite book ever… 

To Kill A Mockingbird
by Harper Lee


I could read this book over and over. I feel like I know Atticus, Scout, Jem, and Boo. I can picture sitting on my front porch drinking iced tea (and I don't like iced tea) on a summer night with them. Although To Kill A Mockingbird deals with many social issues and the loss of innocence… it is full of such warmth and humor. And even though the book was published in 1960, the lessons are timeless.

I'd love to hear what your favorite book is. So please share it with us!
