    1. The Great Gatsby, of course…F. Scott is a master! I really loved all the John Green books…that’s why I read every one he’s ever published!


  1. The 7 Diana Gabaldon books: Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, An Echo in the Bone.
    The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
    The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich
    The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
    Great Expectations by Dickens (the children’s version because I read it to the boys)
    Some of the Tales of King Arthur
    The Three Musketeers by Dumas
    And of course laughing through a second pregnancy by you!
    The only book I started and couldn’t finish was The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje…maybe some other time…


  2. Only one? That’s tough. I would say Outlander. I really fell in love with the main characters and I read the series the first half of the year, so when I was done I felt like I lost two of my friends. I know it’s corny…
    Also, Life of Pi, it wasn’t the reading I enjoyed as much as thinking back when it was all finished. The more I thought about it the more I liked it. I don’t regret reading most of them though.


    1. I still think about ‘Life of Pi’…I read it years ago and it remains in my mind in its own special spot! I’ll have to check out Outlander…thanks!!
