The BookSlave List of Favorites

...On Choosing Favorites
Because readers are constantly evolving - in genre, structure and taste, a "favorites" list is almost always an exercise in obsolescence. Still, there are certain books that continue to draw me back time and again, and it's fun to share and compare them with other booklovers. I consider these favorites an evolving, real-time list, and encourage comments and suggestions from all who visit here. Feel free to flame or praise my choices with email here.
