hmmm...
It is either Robinson Crusoe, or Maugham´s 'Of Human Bondage'.

The Count of Monte Christo is also high on my list- I remember staying up all night to read the last 1/3 of it.  Smile

I'd second that and add two more by Richard Bach which are better IMHO:

1- Stranger to the Ground.
2- A Gift of Wings.

I think probably the best ever non-fictional book a human can write is:
The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer.
It's hailed to a be at the level of "All Quiet on the Western Front", I think it far exceeds it. Add to it the fact that its not fiction.

mine would have to be A beautiful Child the Story of Sharon Marshall by Matt birkbeck www.mattbirkbeck.com this story is about a girl who went by the name sharon marshall and a few other names, none of which was her real name. She was raised by a crazy man called Frankly deleno floyd who also used fake names. he would take names from graveyards and use them for himself and Sharon. He kidnaped her at a really young age. over the years he travled with her moving her from one place to another from schools to schools. he made a living as a painter and such. he ended up killing a striper and thats how they found out the somewhat truth on sharon. she was killed in a hit and run accident. when she was hit she was in the hospital she was badly hurt and doctors were hoping she would make it. finaly they said she will likely pull out of it... they had a guard at her door at all times but somehow floyd snuck in he was the last one to see her alive. shortly after she died due to a bubble in her iv or something before the hit and run she was trying to get away from floyd and make a new life for her self. she had a full scholarship to college but never went due to floyd. he was also questioned in her hit and run they suspected floyd did something to her before she died but no proff. he also wanted her cremated. but friends of hers put a stop to all of that they contacted a women they thought was her mother based on the name she was using. but that womens child died at 18 months of age.. when floyd was arrested for the stripers death they found pictures of sharon at an early age.. he claimes he got her from someone but wont speak. when she was alive she gave birth to 3 children only one which floyd let her keep when she died her son was placed in foster care. and floyd tried to get him in his custody. with floyd not being the father it was hard eventualy sharons son michale went missing and floyd was again a possible suspect.. sharons dna was tested against 5 missing children from the late 60s-early 70s but none of them was a match.. she was about 4-6 when floyd first got her.. really great book if u get a chance check out the website

Some because they are well written, some for utility, some because they touched me in some way. No particular order:

Nonfiction:
The Sea Around Us - Rachel Carson (not Chiang Kai Chek)
The True Believer - Eric Hoffer
California Coast Trails - J. Smeaton Chase
Old Greenwood - Charles Kelly & Dale Morgan
Nothing Like It In The World - Steven Ambrose


Novels:
Cannery Row/Sweet Thursday - John Steinbeck
The Shining - Steven King
City of Trembling Leaves - Walter Van Tilburg Clark
Fountainhead - Ayn Rand
Twilight For The Gods - Ernest K. Gann



Aviation related - pleasure reading:
Flights of Passage - Samuel Hynes
Fate is the Hunter - Ernest K. Gann
Serenade to the Big Bird - Bert Stiles
Stranger to the Ground - Richard Bach
Carrying The Fire - Michael Collins
The Memphis Belle - Menno Duerksen
Wind, Sand and Stars - Antoine de Ste. Exupéry


Aviation related - technical:
Fly The Wing - Jim Webb
A weather manual published by Jeppesen - can't recall the title.
Pilot Handbook - Boeing & Airbus


Hard to classify but mostly non-fiction:
Illusions - Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah - Richard Bach
Wanderer - Sterling Hayden
Sweet Promised Land - Robert Laxalt
Iberia - James Michener


Oh that's enough. Most are probably out of print anyway.

That would be the Large Print Edition with the pull-out step-by-step floor chart and the number for the paramedics printed in flourescent type on the back cover.

I read too many books to have any absolute favourites, but I love Terry Pratchett, Lindsey Davis, P.G. Wodehouse, Tom Holt, Patrick O'Brien, Jane Austen, E.F. Benson, James Clavell, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Michener, Wilbur Smith, Agatha Christie, Jilly Cooper (I know, I know, but I don't care !)

If I had to pick a current favourite, it would be Alexander McCall-Smith's No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series - they are wonderful, moving, intelligent and profound books that really make you think, and which resonate with a deep emotional chord - I love them, I just read the 6th one, "Blue Shoes and Happiness" and can't wait to re-read them all - I'll give it a year maybe, just so it will more fun to re-discover them.

The novels by Paul Auster, especially Moon over Manhattan and City of Glass, Roth' Plot against America or Human Stain, Orwell's 1984, Kerouac's On the Road, Frederick Douglass' autobiography...and some German writing guys really know how to write such as the Austrians: Ransmayr's Morbus Kitahara (absolutely recommendable), Raoul Schrott (Tristan da Cunha) and Thomas Bernhard (several, Der Untergeher is my favourite). Orthe Swiss autors: Dürrenmatt, both prose and drama (The Pledge, Der Mitmacher, Achterloo, Der Besuch der Alten Dame, etc...) Max Frisch (Stiller, Homo Faber, Mein Name sei Gantenbein, Montauk, etc...) and many many more.

And the JP airline fleets - the 'Bible' of aviation.


Always nice to talk about books.

It occurs to me that one might define 'book' as a specific copy of a title. In that case my library includes autographed books by the following authors which makes this copy rate pretty high with me:

Richard Bach
Gordo Cooper
Gene Kranz
Pappy Boyington
Moya Lear
Menno Duerksen
Bob Hoover
Chuck Yeager (as if he wrote it)
and several local writers that I like

plus:
We - Charles Lindbergh a first edition
The Superfortress is Born - Thomas Collison signed by a dozen or so people who worked on the B-29 including many inspectors stamps. Cool!
Blaze Of Noon - Ernest K. Gann and tucked in its pages is a really nice letter to me from his widow Dodie.
The Wild Blue - Stephen Ambrose and tucked in its pages is a couple of letters to me from one of the pilots mentioned in the book.

That last group is really special to me.

I don't have a favourite, it's either "like 'em" or "don't."

Currently I'm reading Jimmy Carter's "The Hornet's Nest," which will end up in the "don't" category; last week I read Caryl Phillips' "The Nature of Blood," which made it on to the "like it" list.

It is. Started reading it this morning at work and I'm more than half-way through it. As an economist (if that's what I am after majoring in that field), I really like how economic theory is applied to real life situations, like how school teachers and sumo wrestlers are alike, how the KKK is like a real estate agency, or how most drug dealers live at home with their moms.
