I read a lot of publishers’ newsletters, and I notice that a certain question pops up quite often during author interviews: “What is your favorite book?”
I’ve never much been one to play favorites with anyone or anything — my tastes are pretty varied, so it’s hard for me to just pick one thing and have it represent everything I like. But recently, it struck me: As a loud and proud Literophiliac, shouldn’t I have some sort of favorites list when it comes to books?
