The Great American Read

There is nothing I love more than a book list, and a book list made up of 100 titles chosen by people across the country as their favorite book - there's nothing better!

Not only has PBS pulled together a solid list of America's favorite books, they will be hosting a multi-part series about the power of literature all summer long! In conjucntion with the series, viewers will be able to vote on their favorite books from the list. I've been wracking my brain to come up with my favorite book from the list. Is it One Hundred Years of Solitude, the most lyrical, magical, fully realized novel I've read? Or Invisible Man, a novel that tore apart my heart and mind? Or is it Their Eyes Were Watching God, a novel that made me feel connected to all of womankind in a way I never had before? What about Anne of Green Gables and Tales of the City, two novels that charmed me endlessly and leave me with a hazy feeling of joy everytime I think of them?

I don't know if I can decide! I'd love to know what everyone else thinks. What title will win your vote as we choose America's Favorite Book?
