A little while ago, I started a thread about the last good book you read. I've just started my 1st Stephen Ambrose book "D-Day" (I should be through more than that, by now), and I love it. It's made me think of a different way to start a different thread about books.
What is/are your favorite all-time book(s) (and not necessarily the last book you read, although it certainly could be), and why it is/they are. Of course, most of you with whom I have had conversation/debate know that mine is the Bible (KJV, NASB, ESV). But some of my other favorites include:
-The entire of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's complete collection of Sherlock Holmes - the Sherlock Holmes mysteries is simply great storytelling
-Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus - that list of 101 things to do to keep her happy is indispensable
-The 10 Things You Can't Say In America by Larry Elder - he makes a lot of sense (especially about the one issue that most folks don't seem to understand - combatting drugs)
-The Way Things Ought To Be by Rush Limbaugh - certainly better than much of his radio commentary - the best thing I read in that book was his description of having the proper attitude - if you want to succeed, it's not discipline, it's desire.
-The Client by John Grisham - the best of his incredible collection
And there's others, of course.
