These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things

Like a lot of you may be, if I were asked what is your favorite book? Or what book would you take with you to a deserted island? I would say Scriptures, or the Bible etc. But what if you could take more than one?

What is your favorite book?

I would say the non-scriptural book that has influenced me the most, and that I could read, over and over, is:
The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom

If I were stranded on a desert island I would want it, or Swiss Family Robinson( by Johann David Wyss), or Robinson Crusoe(By Daniel Defoe) because I love those stories as well, and I could probably learn something from them in that situation. And as you know, Jane Eyre now makes the list. I like lots of books, but these are the ones I love.

I know there are seemingly numberless amounts to choose from, but what is your favorite book? And if that's really too hard a question, What was your favorite book of 2008?

The Tie Has Been Decided

I wrote the two books on pieces of paper and had one of my kids draw it out of a hat. The winner was... Moby Dick.
Sorry for the delay. (For those of you who don't know, my oldest put his hand in a snow blower and severely broke his finger. He goes in for surgery to reconstruct it on Wed. So please forgive my randomness lately. I'll be back to normal in a week or two. On the plus side I should be able to get lots of reading done in the waiting room.)

Thanks to everyone who voted and Happy Reading!
