Favorite books (Yes, you heard me)

Now I know that "books" are synominous with "torture" for some of you, but some of us actually read them in our free time, whether it's a long beloved classic or the latest science-fiction novel. So if you are one of those people who only read them if you absolutely have to, please humor me and hold that to yourself. (Yes, throughout my insane outbursts and creative mind, I have time to read.)

So, what's your favorite book? Or what are you reading now? I'm not reading one now, and I don't really have a favorite, but one of my favorites would probably be Tuesdays With Morrie. :D

My favorite book thusfar is Season of Life by Jeffrey Marx. It speaks to me, and it was the best summer reading I've done so far in High School.

It's about the author going through a change in his mind what the true meaning of masculinity is while going through the chapters of his own childhood with his friend, Joe Ehrmann. It starts with Jeff deciding to write one more story about the Memorial Stadium of the Baltimore Colts when he decides to interview all of his old friends from his childhood. Joe became a minister after his brother died and was coaching the Gilman football team when Jeff finally got around to interviewing him. Jeff loses himself and decides to stick with the team due to Joe's incorporation of love and values into the game of football. Then he begins his mental journey.

It's not that long, to me it's definately worth the read.

I have read both 'The Most Dangerous Game' anf the two Inherittance Trilogy books, they were great. One of my favorites, I'd have to say, would be Origin of Species and The Elegant Universe. Science; can't argue with it. I also like Fantasy; Inherritance Trilogy, Harry Potter, Septimus Heap, all those series are good. I recently finished the thirteenth Series of Unfortunate Events.

DUDE!! I love Eldest and Eragon, although i find Eragon a bit boring because i read Eldest first and know what happens and is going to happen.

Since we are on the topic.....

My friend read 'Eldest' and 'Eragon', and she's been polling people on a certain part of the second book. She asked me to ask anyone I knew read this question:

Do you think Eragon was being too hard on Murtagh at the end of 'Eldest'?

Kay, so here's Centauri's next argument; and I quote:

"But he didn't have a choice! Galbatorix was /forceing/ him to do all of those things!"

Disclaimer:

I did not write this, I do not necessarily agree with this, I am just relaying Centauri's argument to you.

Well, just because someone doesn't have a choice, doesn't mean they don't want too.

Then why did he save Eragon at the end of the book?
