As a serious reader (okay, okay, someone who reads a lot of young adult romances and the occasional classic), I get asked a lot what my favorite book is.
And I freeze.
I do not have a favorite book. I just cannot pick one book out as the best book I’ve ever read.
I thought maybe I could say that I have favorite books in various genres, but then I realized even that was impossible. If you asked what my favorite memoir was, how could I possibly choose between It’s Not About the Bike by Lance Armstrong or Rocket Boys by Homer Hickman? I cannot.
Asking me to choose is a nightmare. Ask me for my favorite book recommendation and I’ll probably just end up giving you a long list of things I love.
How can anyone really choose a favorite book? Or. . .do you have a favorite book? Am I completely alone in my absolute inability to select one single book?
