Best Books?

I was sitting with my family at Christmas discussing what books we were forced to read, what classics we should read and what books are just an entertaining read.  I’ve always thought of books like meals.  There are the burger and fries, entertaining, filling and homey books like To Kill a Mockingbird. There are the drive through, finish in a day and immediately forget books like most of the mystery books I’ve read. There are the simple PB and J books, comforting and easy like Harry Potter.  Then there are the dinner-for-50 bucks or more books and they are either a delicious butter-rubbed, herb encrusted steak that cuts with a fork like Les Miserables or over-garnished snail-type something that is better left untouched.

Well here is our quick list

To Kill a Mockingbird
Les Miserables
A Tale of Two Cities
The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings
Animal Farm
The Count of Monte Christo
Where the Red Fern Grows
Watership Down
Call of the Wild
Of Mice and Men
Hunt for Red October
The Poisonwood Bible
Cold Sassy Tree
The Hiding Place  

I loved the Christ Clone Trilogy and The Stand.

What would you put on the list?
