Winslow sunny

Gotta agree with you Winslow. Foote's Trilogy is the best thing I ever read on the Civil War (or as we refer to it here in the south The War of Northern Aggression).
For books that are great with pipe or cigar you can't beat Sherlock Holmes or anything by Dickens.

I teach French literature so there are some Great Books that I must deal with all the time, like Pascal's Pensées or the Essays of Montaigne, as well as some plays by Racine and Molière.

The fabulous memoires of the Duc de Saint-Simon, the great chronicler of the court at Versailles under the Sun King, are a favourite, an endless source of delight on rainy days and bummy hours. Twelve huge volumes printed on Bible paper!

Saint-Simon had a decisive influence on all writers attempting to re-create an entire world, a whole period in history and the people who populated it, from Tolstoy and Proust to Henry James, Faulkner, Churchill, Bruce Catton and many others.

I also love Tolstoy. His great three novels, the even greater novellas and short stories, his plays. But a book I can't do without is his War and Peace. My grandparents were Russian émigrés and they loved this book above all others. I can still hear my grandmother's voice reading it out loud and explaining it to us children. It's "truer than truth itself", as Nabokov said.

I met Shelby several times at conferences and meetings over in Memphis a while back. Great fellow, and could he tell a story, he'd keep everyone on the room spellbound with his topics, choice of words, and dialect.

I enjoyed Radical by David Platt. But one of my favorite tomes is Jesus Among Other Gods by Ravi Zacharias.

Just finished re-reading Robinson Crusoe for the first time since I was 11. It definately holds up. Was my favorite book as a child, & I must say, its still pretty damn good.

Really on an Aldous Huxley kick right now though, can't seem to get enough of him.

Besides that, anything by Chuck Palanuik

I have read many, many fantastic books, but the only one I have ever thought of immediately re-reading was the Count of Monte Cristo. Sweet, sweet revenge!

Favorite book of all time is actually a set (although they are often bundled together into a single physical tome).

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (trilogy?) by Douglas Adams.

Read it for the first time in ninth grade, and have enjoyed it hundreds of times since then.

Second favorite would be Lamb, the Gospel according to Biff - Christ's childhood pal by Christopher Moore.

Any other Douglas Adams or Chris Moore fans?
