I love "The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry" by Kathleen Flinn. Her go for the gusto attitude actually helped to inspire me to go for it in the crafting world and I've been amazed at what has happened over the last year and a half!

I love the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. They just give me such a great image of life in Europe and Scotland a long time ago.

There are three books that I could read over and over again...
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
but my favorite book ever has to be
The Princess Bride... the William Goldman translation of the Morgenstern classic
It makes me laugh so hard each time, there is wonder, adventure, giants, an evil prince a beautiful princess, pirates and a little bit of kissing

Bridget Jones Diary. I can't stop laughing through the whole thing.

My faves are:
The Lord Of the Rings series
Lord of the Flies
The Twilight series

Thanks for the chance :D

A little while ago I had to read Atonement for English..and it was so amazingly beautiful. It definitely is my most favourite book ever!

That's a tough question! I think it's a toss up between Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Twilight. Not the entire series of each...just the first books.

My favorite is Pride and Prejudice. I feel in love with it the first time I read it in High School.

How about Anne of Green Gables!

wow that is a hard one. I think I would go with the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. There is action, mystery and romance, what more could a girl ask for?!

Urm...i dont read book's but i'd still like to win, please? hehe

I adore the Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a book or books that will make me laugh out loud! :)

It's actually 2 books but one is the sequel...Pillars of the Earth and World Without End...couldn't put either of them down :)

My alltime favorite book is 'Not without my daughter" , a real story of a woman with so much courage, beautiful and heartbraking.

FEVER SERIES by Karen Marie Moning... I just finished the last one and laughed, cried, became destraught, then relieved and joyous!

I lake "the notebook" by Nicolas spark...what can I say i'm a romantic :)

I love Plain Song by Kent Haruf. It has such a sense of community with enough drama to keep it interesting! Thanks!

That's a big ask! I love 'Oranges are not the only fruit' by Jeanette Winterson. Beautifully written, so inspiring and I see something new in it everytime I read it.

Not a classic: but Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is amazing! Loved the 2 others but the first was the best.

My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice!

My favorite book is a the seven waters trilogy by Juliet Marillier. Her stories are soo good and completely take me in!

My favorite classic is Jane Eyre. I have read it multiple times and I always feel like there is something more to get from it.

My favorite book is Brazzaville Beach by William Boyd - it's fascinating and uplifting at the same time. Oh, and Pride and Prejudice, of course!

As a person who reads and re-reads so many of my favorite books, it's hard to pick a favorite. But one of my all-time favorites is from my childhood, called, "Up a Road Slowly" by Irene Hunt.

Still Life Wuth Rice, lovely biography about Korean history.

I love "Emma." It is a romantic and witty novel.

These days, I love light, happy reads. My favotie is the Confessions of a Shopaholic Series!

I'd have to pick Pride and Prejudice. It always captures my imagination and I find myself lost in it over and over again.

Anne of Green Gables is a Canadian Classic!

I can't pick one all time fave...I love to read...and re-read lots of my books.

Thanks for a chance at this great giveaway.

The catcher in the rye. Hands down. I read it in high school and i've loved it ever since.

I have a favorite book series...the Stephanie Plum Books by Janet Evanovich. They crack me up! I totally laugh out loud while reading these! I have read the entire series twice now :)

I love all the classics. The best books i have read recently are "The Book Thief" and "Love Walked In".

Any and All Harry Potter Series.

water for elephants

i read this several years ago and love love loved it. i loved imagining the old time circus, the love story, the friendship of an elephant. it was just an amazing book!

xoxo andie librandi...

Loved Gone with the Wind. Loved the movie too.

That is really hard. I'd have to say that the first book that really captured my imagination would be The Hobbit. As an adult the Witching Hour by Anne Rice. I have so many favorites though, these two just stand out in my mind. Awesome collection AC!!!

It would have to be Little Women, it is just such a classic.

It has to be Green Eggs & Ham. by Dr.Seuss, This book was what helped me learn how to read when I was little then it did the same for my boys. To see them love that book as they grew when I would read it to him see them process & be able to read it themselves.Sweetest thing ever. Now my little girl is starting to love the book and its fun to see her brothers read it to her. I love that just like them she is starting to memorize the book and sooner then later will be in school (she's 4)and hopefully when they ask her what her favorite book will be Green Eggs & Ham.

I have so many favorite books for different reasons... I think my all-time favorite is The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls.

It is hard for me to pick a favorite, but what "I" am very into now is Dr. Seuss :) haha
I have a 3 year old, and they are such fun, cute books ... she loves them & I love reading them to her :)
Thanks for the great chance for some great product .... ACs, you never disappoint :)

Another vote for Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Fabulous series I intend to reread again/

Tina M
I love to read, I read all types of books, honestly my FAVORITE book has to be the BIBLE! Enough said. thanks for the chance to win.

My favorite book is Emma. The ending gets me every time & when I read it, I feel like I'm watching a soap opera!

A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving.
A story of destiny, in my opinion. In knowing your limitations, knowing your strengths and living your destiny. about determination and the quest for completion. A book almost murdered by the movie... a definate case of READ THE BOOK FIRST! And the only book i have ever wanted to read more than once. a book that drove me to read more of Irving's works. brilliant novelist.

My fave is still the first of the twilight series! I can't stop dreaming about edward cullen everytime I read it. It's a classic for me. :)

so many books so little time...hmm

Here are a few of my favorites: "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn", "Catcher in the Rye", and "Pride and Prejudice".

My favourite book is Gone with the Wind!!
LOVE IT!! It is the only book I've read multiple times!!

The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, it was the first book I read for my first college level history class. I loved it so much, I changed my major! Even though it's fictitious, as far as the family is concerned, the context of the story has a factual nature. I have reread it many times since then and I always think, I am so glad I had that class because I LOVE history now.

my favourite author is Paulina Simons. Everything she writes is amazing! My fave book from her would be The Bronze Horseman, love the love story behind it, so beautiful

Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper. Loved that it made me laugh out loud, cry, get angry and think.

I don't get much time to read so I like to read the young adult fiction books, because they're shorter and to the point. The pretty little liars series is what I'm working on now, since I'm addicted to the show!

How on earth can I pick a favorite book?! There are thousands that make the list. I suppose based on buying books the second they come out and staying up all night reading them, I'd have to go with the Harry Potter books.

Another one here who is not big on reading but about 5 years ago I did read "The Shack". It takes me a long time to read a book but this I couldn't put down and had it read in 2 days.

My favorite classic of all time is To Kill A Mockingbird. I read it in high school, college and again in my late 20s. I'm about due to read it again! It is such a beautifully written story and an American classic. I even named my cat Scout because of that book! (In recent years, I've LOVED Pillars of the Earth, Water for Elephants, The Help and Cutting for Stone.)

My absolute favorite book is Devil in the White City (can't remember the author off-hand) - an amazing book recounting the months leading up to the World's Fair in Chicago in the late 19th Century & the serial killer who was active just outside it's gates...fascinating & a remarkable read...;)

Do scrappy magazines count? LOL It's been a while since I've read a good book. The one that came to mind immediately when I read the question was To Kill a Mockingbird. :)

I don't have a favorite favorite book. I do love all Nicholas Sparks books...because sometimes you just need a good cry.

To Kill a Mockingbird - the characters are amazing and so is the entire story.

I love The Help. It's such an amazing story told from a unique perspective. I think it's my favorite book I read last year.

Oh I have tons of favorites, the one I'll choose right now is "That's Good, That's Bad" by Margery Cuyler. It's a children's book about a little boys visit to the zoo and how sometimes something good can come from something bad. I love it, and so do the kids in my class.

I love the Anne of Green Gables books because they are quirky, happy and show how someone who is different can change the people around them. To Kill a Mockingbird is up there too!! :)

Eat, Pray, Love is right at the top. It wasn't so much about HER as it was about the journey and the experiences she made. LOVED it.

ONE favorite book? That's like picking one favorite song or one favorite American Crafts line lol! But one I've probably read more than any other since childhood and into adulthood is The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. :)

My favorite book has been the same since I was 10 years old--The Phantom Tollbooth. It taught me so much while taking me into a world only the tollbooth can take you to :)

my favorite book is "the time traveler's wife." i fell in love with it long before it was a movie. the story is just so moving and powerful...and it was one of those books that kept me thinking long after i had finished reading it.

Anything by James Patterson, love his writing!

one of my favorites is "a light in the attic" by shel silverstein. i had the books AND the books on tapes (that i played over and over on my fisher-price tape recorder) when i was young. his poems just make me laugh out loud!

Mine would be Tuesdays with Morrie. Can't think of a better book on cherishing life's little moments.

my fave book is the Twilight books... I haven't gotten back into reading since I started those books... I know, I know, they aren't hard core literature LOL!!!, but it's a fun read and I've enjoyed rereading them

I don't think I have one favorite, but I love John Steinbeck and Grapes of Wrath.

Bill Bryson's Notes From A Small Island is still one of my favorites. Even though I've been reading Harry Potter with my son - again.

"The Gifts of Imperfection" by Brené Brown - it's a wonderful, inspiring read.

My all time favorite is The Wizard of Oz. It is because I so vividly remember sitting on my dads lap as a little girl and him reading it to me. I still have that original book. It's one of my most treasured possessions.

My favourite book of all time is "The Thorn Birds" by Colleen McCollough. :D

Gone With the Wind. I love Scarlett.

The Little Prince, hands down :-)

hmm tough one - I have many favorites - my favorite to read with my kids is 'The View from Saturday'
Sandra ltb

OHHHH! I love love love ATLAS SHRUGGED because it was my first "really big" book that I read. I also love MONSTER MANNERS for kids--it is super cute and teaches them how to behave. Thanks for the chance to win:)

Hard to choose a favorite, but I seem to go for series books. When I was young, it was Babysitter's Club and Sweet Valley High. Now I like the Shopaholic books. Not exactly mind-stretching stuff, but I believe reading is for relaxing!

I love the entire Chronicles of Narnia series - have since I was a child! I reread them every few years or so - they just remind me of being a kid :)

Anything by Steinbeck! I've read almost everything he ever wrote and some ("Tortilla Flats") several times! Love the humanity or lack of sometimes in these! Thanks for an amazing giveaway!

Mister God, it's Anna by Fynn. It's so though provoking and so insanely touching that I was a changed person from the moment I read it.

P&P is my all time favourite book, but right now i am rereading an old fave, the anita blake series by laurell k hamilton, they are gripping stuff.

James and the Giant Peach...I love the creativity journey this book takes the imagination on!

My absolute favorite is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith. It's a classic that I think everyone should read! It really makes you thankful for everything you have.

Picking one is really, really, hard. I guess I would say Sarum by Edward Rutherfurd. It's got a little bit of everything, plus history.

at different stages and ages in my life there are books that match i have found LOL..right now its eat pray love. with rather more emphasis on the eat :-)

One True Thing by Anna Quindlen

I would have to say the Bible. It reminds me of what's most important in life and makes me a better person every time I read it. :)

The Woodcutter by Reginald Hill. Amazingly well written and a great story. Lots of stuff between the lines...

Hmmm, just one? I love Grapes of Wrath but also Anna Karenina. What can I say, I love my classics ; )

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! I love that Harry gets some real family at the end of the book :) and time travel is pretty awesome too

I grew up with Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys! Those started me off with the Mystery/Detective genre I love so much now.

i love to read a book i loved as a child....Goodnight Mr Tom. Spent days searching second hand book stores for it!!!
love it!!!

My favorite books are written by Nabokov - because of wonderful language. Thanks for the chance!

the Classics line looks like a great line!

My all time favorite book is..."We're going on a Bear Hunt" by Helen Oxenbury....I know that book from front to back and can read it without reading it...love reading it to my kids and the children I teach....LOVE it!

I just recently read Gloria Naylor's Mama Day and it instantly replaced all other books that might have counted as favs. I haven't had time yet to read it again but I am convinced that this is one of those books that tell you something different and new about yourself everytime you read it.
