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.

Our quick list:
To Kill a Mockingbird
Les MiserablesA Tale of Two CitiesThe Hobbit and The Lord of The RingsAnimal FarmThe Count of Monte ChristoWhere the Red Fern Grows
Watership Down
Call of the WildOf Mice and MenHunt for Red OctoberThe Poisonwood Bible
Cold Sassy TreeThe Hiding Place
The Stand.
