Love a book? Tell us!

I have read many books over the years, and I’m sure you have too. So basically, every day is Book Lovers Day! But today is a “National” Book Lovers Day, when readers all over the country celebrate the magic that is a book. What is your favorite book? I have several: Alice Hoffman’s Turtle Moon, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, A.S. Byatt’s Possession, and so many more.
