These Are Your Favorite Books

I asked you about your favorite books on Twitter recently, and got more responses than I anticipated.

About 955, as it turns out.

Here are the books that were mentioned most often (including quite a few that surprised me.)

  • The Phantom Tollbooth
  • East of Eden & Grapes of Wrath
  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • House of Leaves
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
  • Watership Down
  • Dandelion Wine
  • Orlando
  • Catch 22
  • Boy’s Life
  • The Count of Monte Christo
  • 1984
  • Dune
  • All the Light We Cannot See
  • Blood Meridian & All The Pretty Horses
  • The Hobbit
  • A Wrinkle in Time
  • Where the Red Fern Grows

I’ve read about half of those, which I guess is not bad. It means I have some good reading ahead of me.

The one most people mentioned was The Phantom Tollbooth. I’ve never read it and have only heard it mentioned a few times so it’s popularity really surprised me.

Any of your favorites on there?
