    Ruth Allmart says:

    Fabulous release! My most memorable book has to be Flowers in the Attic and as usual the book was so much better than the movie.

    Cathy Yamashita says:

    Well, I’m an avid reader, so my favorite may change over time. But I read “Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follett several years ago and it was fascinating. It is a historical novel that takes place in the era when the magnificent European cathedrals were being built. The story itself is compelling and gives a wonderful look at how people lived, plus you get the amazing story of how the cathedrals came about. I’ve tried to get lots of people to read it, but it is 1200 pages. However, it was SO good that I read it in less than two weeks.

    Julie G. says:

    The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas is my most memorable and favorite!

    Peggy Allen says:

    The most important and memorable book I have read is the Bible. It teaches us how to be saved, how to live and answers all our questions.

    Amy R says:

    I think I will have a really hard time choosing my most memorable book. I love to read, so I have lots of choices. I think I will choose the first Harry Potter book. I read it aloud to my son who was not much of a reader. It inspired him to read the entire series, so I was able to share my love of reading with him.

    Amy Gutknecht says:

    I loved “The Help”. When I got to the last page, I honestly missed the characters and I was sad that it was over!

    Carrie :) says:

    My first favorite author when I was about 8 or 9 years old was Ruth Chew. Her books are no longer published, but she’s responsible for converting me into a reader. I loved all of her books, but remember “The Witches Buttons” being a favorite. I always remember her as being the G-rated version of Stephen King. Lol!
    Thanks for all the great inspiration this month! It’s a banner month for sure!

  • 10

    The most memorable book I ever read, well I have to say the Bible and Atlas Shrugged.

  • 11

    I loved “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls. It was an unbelievable true story that read like fiction, and the author’s voice resonated long after the book was finished!

  • 12
    Casie says:

    All Creatures Great and Small by James Harriot

  • 13
    Kathy W says:

    I don’t know that I could ever name just “one” memorable book….but one of my favorites is “Green Dolphin Street” by Elizabeth Goudge. My favorite series would have to be Nancy Drew…brings back so many great childhood memories.

  • 14
    Thordis says:

    This is a great release. So many products I would like to get, so my list is long ๐Ÿ™‚
    The most memorable book that I have read is The Icelandic Saga’s … I love them all ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 15
    Ohhh Snap says:

    The most memorable book I’ve read in the last few years is “Let’s Pretend this Never Happened” by Jenny Lawson.

    A strong contender is The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling’s nom de plume).

  • 16
    Polly Lemire says:

    “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. It still inspires me to live a more lprdoductive and creative life.

  • 17
    Allene Frederick says:

    “The Life of Our Lord” by Charles Dickens. I have never been a big reader and in high school I was struggling to find a book to read for class. My mom handed me a copy of my Great-Grandfather’s book to read. Best memory and book I’ve ever read.

  • 18
    Margaret says:

    Hawaii by James Michner

  • 19
    Louise Spiden says:

    One of my favorite books was ‘Me Before You’ by Jojo Moyes. I often think about the characters years after I’ve read it….sign of a good book I think?

  • 20
    Jessica Monte says:

    OK I am in love with everything this month. My most memorable book I read to myself was the Key trilogy by Nora Roberts (I only read them 3 times lol) For my daughter that I have read to her is the magic tree house series. They are our favorite books we enjoy together. But then I also love Harry Potter all of the books. I have only read them 8 time…

  • 21
    Ange Kelly says:

    I read A LOT! but one of my favourites is the Harry Potter series…

  • 22
    Sandra says:

    I love She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I have read it several times over the years and still think it is a moving story of hurt and betrayal. Thanks for the opportunity to win, love the new stitching elements!

  • 23
    Nita K. says:

    What a question! The most memorable book I’ve read is Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret by Judy Blume. As a kid I read it over and over. I also loved the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. I began a lifelong love of reading through these books.

  • 24
    katevdp says:

    “The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shafer & Annie Burrows. I’ve always loved a book of written letters & this beautiful book just stole my heart. I’ve bought many copies of it as gifts, and it never fails to lift the spirit.

  • 25
    Imke Ludwig says:

    “The Swarm” from Frank Schรคtzing, a german author. Ecological message packaged as science-thriller. And if you dive (like me), it is even creepier.

  • 26
    AnneC says:

    What an amazing release. My favorite book I read was when I was in High School and that was A Tale of Two Cities.

  • 27
    Christine Nixon says:

    I have many, many favorite books and read them over and over, but I guess the one that has stayed with me the longest was one I read in second grade. I do not remember the author but the title of the book was Chanticlair the Rooster. I loved the colorful illustrations and that sparked my lifelong love of roosters. My kitchen has always been decorated with them and I still love them to this day.

  • 28

    I would have to say…as a pre teen I read Roots before it was a mini series and it was very thought provoking at that young age.

  • 29
    Nadia Kendall says:

    I remember having to read Manchild in the Promised Land whle entering High School. I didn’t fully understand it then but as an adult, I appreciate the message more.

  • 30
    Kim Faucher says:

    I have to say To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
    It changed the way I thought about the world, how to positively deal with injustice and created a love of reading for me.

  • 31
    Carolyn Picken says:

    The bible , it is a guide to living the life God created me for.

  • 32
    Sheri Watts says:

    Most recently read a book called “The Selection” I loved it and the characters stayed with me long after reading the book.

  • 33
    Caren says:

    Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Always travel with a towel!

  • 34
    julieann says:

    Mine is a fun one it is the Janet Evonavich series only because I have a very stressful job and it destresses me.

  • 35
    jan metcalf says:

    Ann of Green Gables. The book was passed down from my mother to me and then to my daughter, precious memories!

  • 36
    Cammie says:

    I truly cannot pick just one book; however, in my thirty years of teaching thousands of students and many different pieces of literature, I never had a student who did not like To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It was always a joy to guide my students through the wonderful lessons Lee teaches in this novel.

  • 37

    So many memorable books… but I’d probably have to go with The Diary of Anne Frank. So remarkable and all the more so because it is true!

  • 38
    Lindsey L. says:

    What an amazing release! I love reading and there are so many novels I love, but truly the most memorable book has to be the word of God, particularly the New Testament.

  • 39
    Kathy W says:

    “Most memorable” in my lifetime I can’t really say…most memorable this year would probably be Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch or Eleanor Catton’s The Luminaries or Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Signature of All Things. Each one was involved and long–I like long books, so I can enjoy the story and the writing for a few weeks.

  • 40
    Connie G says:

    To pick just one memorable book is next to impossible because I love to read. One of the many favorites I have though is To Kill A Mockingbird. I have never forgotten it.

  • 41

    The most memorable book I have read is Daddy by Danielle Steel. It was the first book I read in high school that transitioned me from reading young adult to adult books. She is still my favorite author!

  • 42
    Victoria h says:

    Harry potter and the philosophers stone….after reading this I was hooked! My daughter loves these books too.

  • 43
    sano says:

    The Bible. So many of life’s questions can be answered there.

  • 44
    Heather I. says:

    Every Day by David Levithan is one of the most memorable books I have read.

  • 45
    Dee in NH says:

    A Tree Grows In Brooklyn is probably one of my all time favorites. I have always been an avid reader and could probably list another dozen (or more) favorites but when I was younger I read this book several times.

  • 46
    Karen F says:

    I don’t have only one favorite book, but the Harry Potter series made me fall in love with reading all over again. Loved going to the book release parties and was so sad to attend the party for the final book in the series. Never felt that way about any other book series and characters.

  • 47
    MargR says:

    The book that is most memorable to me is ‘Emma’ by Jane Austen, which led me to read all her books, then other 19thC novels such as by Elizabeth Gaskell and Anthony Trollope.

  • 48
    Sallie says:

    “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee.

  • 49
    Cindy says:

    I would have to say Lord of the Rings. I first read it when I was 13 and have reread it probably 20 times!

  • 50
    Isabel Z says:

    To hard to chose from so many so I will go with a childhood favorite–Little House in the Big Woods and the rest of the series. So many good memories.

  • 51
    Jan Pufall says:

    I loved The Kite Runner. It was difficult to read about such awful conditions, and inspiring to read about how some people.are still,able to come out on the other side of such devastation.

  • 52
    l says:

    My most memorable book I have ever read is the Bible…as for fiction, Where the Red Fern Grows. Read as a child and cried so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 53
    Amanda says:

    As a kid “Alas Babylon” which I still remember vividly. And as an older kid, “Green Darkness” has been the most memorable. Still love them both.

  • 54
    Mary-Anne V. says:

    Wonderful release…love those Christmas related projects. For my fav. book I go way back to two classics Anne of Green Gables and Little Women.

  • 55

    I’m not much of a reader but Shutter Island was one that stuck with me! It was great!!!

  • 56
    Julie C. says:

    What an awesome release! So excited to get into holiday crafting! My most memorable book would be “The Lost World” by Michael Crichton when I was almost 9. I was at the beach with my family, and had read all of the Little House books (again) that I brought with me. I loved the movie Jurassic Park that had just come out, and my dad left his book on his chair while he was in the water, so it was fair game to me! My first introduction into a whole new world of book selection.

  • 57
    Terri W says:

    The book I have read over and over is The Stand by Stephen King. I always find something I missed in previous reads.

  • 58

  • 62
    Aimee says:

    One of my all time favorites is Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. It’s a girl-power book written in the 1930’s and has amazing imagery and depth.

  • 63
    Cyndie says:

    Wonderful release! Can’t wait! Now for the question: the earliest memorable book I can remember reading (from junior high school way too many years ago) was Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen). Still enjoy it today. Oh, and I always re-read A Christmas Carol by Dickens, every Christmas Eve. No movie has ever captured the wry humor of the original story.

  • 64
    Tee Tee says:

    I’m going to have to go with Pride and Prejudice but there are so many more.

  • 65
    F Bond says:

    3rd or 4th grade-Scholastic Book Fair- “Mary Jane”. My introduction to chapter books had me hooked! After that, every time the Scholastic Fair came- I asked for as many books as I could. I loved it so much that as an adult and we went from state to state and country to country (military family) I kept this book with me. Almost 50 years later its still here- in my craft room on display.

  • 66
    Kathy D says:

    Oh, my…how do you name a favorite?? Do I go classic…”Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott? Or more recent, the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling?

  • 67

    The Help because I read it and loved it and gave it to my mom who read it in the hospital and loved it just before she passed.

  • 68

    Mine would have to be book #4 of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: “So long and thanks for all the fish” by Douglas Adams.

  • 73
    Denise E says:

    There are so many books to choose from. But, for me, the most memorable that I’ve read over and over is the Bible. For other literature, “Redeeming Love” by Francine Rivers made a big impression on me. Love the entire release! Thank you!

  • 74
    VikkiCH says:

    This release is epic! “To Kill a Mockingbird” always makes it to the top of my favs.

  • 75
    Cheri says:

    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

  • 76

    I would say the most memorable book was “The Joy Luck Club”. I read it when I was young and I loved it so much I read all of Amy Tan ‘ s other books after that!

  • 77
    janet wilson says:

    Oh, I’d have to put “Gone with the Wind” aside for now and say “The Physician” by Noah Gordon. This is a Historical fiction book which is set in the 11th century, about a young man who disguises himself as a Jew – to enable him to attend a “medical school” in Persia.

    FANTASTIC Release ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 78
    Dragica W. says:

    I read a lot, but one of my favourites is Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. Great release!

  • 79
    Birgit says:

    The most memorable book I have read and continue to read is the Bible. I enjoy other reading as well, but there is none more important than the truths and hope you’ll find when you need it, when you read the Bible.

  • 80
    Luray says:

    I read a lot! But the most memorable book would have to be the Bible.

  • 81
    adele says:

    Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand was a favorite that I read several times. I’m an avid reader and I see a lot of other titles here that are also memorable. More recently, The Help, The Art of Racing in the Rain, Outlander and Game of Thrones. I could make a very long list, so I’ll stop now! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 82
    Shannon--Hank's Mom says:

    Anything I can read with my 10 year old son. He still loves when I read to him. His favorite book–21 Balloons.

  • 83
    Jen W. says:

    Congrats on another amazing release! The most memorable book I’ve ever read – and my all time favorite – is “To Kill A Mockingbird”. I read it at least once a year and always find a new little gem in it. I even named my dogs Scout, Atticus and Jem!

  • 84
    Teresa F says:

    A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. Read as a child and still retread it once in a while. Love the new releases!

    Great release day! I have to go with a serried, The O’Malleys by Dee Henderson.

  • 87

    Not only the book but the movie as well – “To Kill a Mockingbird”.

  • 88
    Diane Anthony says:

    I would have to say that the Little House Books have been my most memorable. I saved my money to go and buy them in paperback when I was young! I told myself that when I was a grown up, I would get them all in hardcover, and I have!

  • 89
    Meg C says:

    The Chronicles of Narnia. My 5th grade teacher shared these books with my class. I re-read them all a few years back when The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe was about to be released as a movie. This brought back memories I have of this favorite teacher.

  • 90
    Irene S says:

    The Pelican Brief was the most memorable book I have read. I couldn’t put it down.

  • 91
    Katherine K says:

  • 93
    LindaM says:

    I must say Outlander by Diana Galbadon. History, Romance, Fantasy who could ask for more!

  • 95
    Tanja S. says:

    Apart from The Bible, my most memorable book is “The Help” such a well written and moving book. Of course there are many, many other great books.

  • 96

    In classic literature “Anna Karenina” was amazing. More recently I read “Gone Girl” and the plot so twisted I couldn’t put it down!

  • 97
    Lennie says:

    I love to read and find it hard to pick the most memorable book that I have read. If forced to pick just one, I would pick the book of Ester from the Bible.

  • 98
    Amy says:

    I’d have to say Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison — it introduced me to my favorite series (I’ve re-read all the books numerous times) but it was also a gift from my husband and introduced me to a brand new author to love!

  • 99
    Kathy DuBose says:

    My first book in a book series….and that is Flowers in the Attic. This is an awesome release.

  • 100

    The most memorable book that I have read is “The Empress of China by Pearl S. Buck. It was written in 1956(!!) and I read it when I was 16 from my mother. I can still remember how I was totally in my own (chinese) world for weeks!!! I would love to read it again!

  • 101
    Penny P. says:

    I am such an avid reader there are so many I could list. The most recent I’ve read had such an impression on me I read it twice! It is 11/22/63 by Stephen King. I love time travel and this was written so well!

  • 102
    Grace says:

    I’ve read some really awesome books over the years. But the most memorable book I’ve read is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Daggy I know! But I read it as a kid over 20 years ago and yet what I learned stays with me – there is always fun to be had when you don’t let your mind get old and there is always a bit magic waiting to happen,

  • 103
    annheidel says:

    I love many books, so that is a difficult choice. Today I’ll say “The Blue Castle” by L.M. Montgomery. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 104

    Beautiful work ladies!!

  • 105
    Tammy Mohr says:

    I love a good paranormal mystery and my favorite is The Rachel Morgan Series by Kim Harrison because it contains a lot of humor. They are a fun escape from the day to day world. I also love the Harry Potter Series. I think my favorite was “The Prisoner of Azkaban”.

  • 106
    Lanie Weathers says:

    “Grapes of Wrath” by Steinbeck

    The Notebook

  • 110
    Janice says:

    My most memorable book is “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak, a fictional story set in World War II Germany, told, interestingly enough, from death’s point of view. Even as a lover of books, this book touched my heart like few have.

  • 111
    Betty H. says:

    When I was a moody teenager, a teacher recommended I read “Pride and Prejudice”. It was that book that triggered my love of books and reading. I will always be grateful for that recommendation. Now I work in an elementary school library and try everyday to find that one book that will light up a reluctant reader.

  • 112
    Deb Else says:

    I read many books each year, and my favorites change all the time. I have to say James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small is one I come back to often to retread.

  • 113
    Grace says:

    I love to read . The most memorable book is MY BIBLE. It teaches us how to belong to The Lord and how to walk in this world.

  • 114
    Carrie T says:

    I will never forget Judy Blume’s book, “Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret?” My 6th grade teacher gave it to me in hopes of sparking my interest in reading. I was a good student, but not much of a reader. I will forever be grateful to that teacher and Judy Blume as I’ve been an avid reader ever since!

  • 115
    Geri G says:

    “The Mountains Are Calling”…written by my Grandfather! He enlightened his readers with the trials & tribulations of pioneer life. He wrote 4 books during his lifetime. A legacy of stories to be passed down through the generations.

    Fabulous product and amazing projects ladies!

  • 116
    Kristii says:

    One of the most memorable books I have ever read was The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. I didn’t like that death was the narrator if the book, but it drew me in and touched my heart forever.

  • 117
    Suzette says:

    I have to say the most memorable book I have read is the Bible. I have read through the Bible several times in the last few years and I must say there is something new to glean with every reading. While I love to read, and do read many books, the Bible is really the only one that matters.

  • 118
    Lizzie T says:

    I’d have to say the most memorable book to me is “Goodnight Moon” – I read it to my son every night when he was young. He’s in college now and I still have the book! I’d love to pass down to a grandchild someday.

  • 119
    Karolina says:

    I don’t read a lot, but one of my favourite books has been “The picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde, a classic ๐Ÿ™‚

    My mother strongly encouraged reading when I was young and I was never really interested until she gave me “The Hobbit”. I was hooked and have loved reading ever since.

  • 121
    Diana says:

    Oh, it’s so hard to pick just one! To Kill a Mockingbird will stay with me for the rest of my life so I guess that makes it the most memorable. I really love the stamps and dies!

    Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and Lord of the Flies. There are so many classics that are great. To Kill a Mockingbird, Tale of Two Cities, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice andMen, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, Unbroken….I could go on and on. Great reads.

  • 128
    Donna Gourley says:

    This may sound strange, but “The Boxcar Children” which I read as a child. I was not a reader by any stretch of the imagination, but this book opened the door to what reading could be for me. I still don’t read as much as I’d like to except on vacation…let’s face it…I’d rather be stamping! But I did learn that whole other worlds could be found in books and the Boxcar Children did that for me.

    Jessica H. says:

    Wow. This is definitely a tough question. The most memorable is not necessarily my favorite….I’d have to go with Fast Food Nation. That book made me see eating beef and fast food in a whole new light.

    Sarah T. says:

    At the age of 13 I had to spend time in hospital and while there my Dad read to me – something he hadn’t done for years. We read Beowulf, and that book has staying in my heart to this day. I’ve read many versions since but that first time was magical. My son recently read the Seamus Heaney translation of it, and loved it as much as my Dad and I did.

    I love reading all the other choices. So many books moved me profoundly but Night by Elie Wiesel was the most powerful book I ever read. I read it decades ago but it haunts me to this day.

  • 132

    So many great books to choose from. I’m going to say the New Nancy Drew Series
    from the 80s. It’s what made me fall in love with reading!

  • 133
    Pamela Levingston says:

    The Bible.

  • 134

    Pride & Prejudice. The first time I tried to read it, I couldn’t get into it for some reason. I tried again a few years later & loved it.

    The Count of Monte Cristo. No idea why, but I have always remembered that book. It’s a classic!

    Tanya says:

    Fall on your knees by Anne Marie Macdonald. I love her style of writing and the fact that she is a Canadian author.

  • 146

    Most memorable book… that’s tough. I would have to say The Book of Mormon. Atlas Shrugged, The Lord of the Rings, and The Historian are other favorites. (It’s almost October… Time to reread The Historian! It’s a spooky history of Dracula… a fabulously intense and hair-raising read without being disturbing.)

  • 147
    Kim Edsen says:

    I can’t wait to check out everyone’s favorite books! I love Little House books. I read them over and over as a child and now read them with my children. They are near and dear.

  • 148
    Cathy Max says:

    My lovely daughter got me back into reading. She highly suggested I read the Hunger Games series and the Harry Potter series. And I must say, I was immediately hooked! Drove my hubby crazy because I couldn’t put the books down and would read way into the wee hours of the morning ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 149
    Erin says:

    Absolutely A Prayer for Owen Meany. One of the best books I have ever read. I didn’t want it to be over ….

  • 150
    Josie Dee says:

    I have been reading books since I first learned how and I panic if I don’t have a book waiting to be read after finishing my current read. To pick just one is impossible for so many come to mind….”As the Crow Flies”, “A Women of Substance”, Pillars of the Earth”, Beach Music”…but that just names a few. To me reading is my way of relaxing and allows me to make my own artistic movie as I give the written word life. Love the chance to escape!

  • 151
    Denise C. says:

    I’m an Ann of Green Gables fan. I read them with my daughter and we also watched all the movies.

    Amy Dann says:

    My most memorable book has been “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand. When learning about WWII in school, I never truly grasped what so many lived through and how many lost their lives. Truly a moving book. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!

  • 159
    Janet says:

    Picking out one book is like saying you can only have one Papertrey stamp! So I’ll pick “The Power of Introverts” by Susan Cain. Being an introvert gives me the time to read all the books I love.(And time for paper crafting.) GREAT release.

  • 160

    Gone with the wind is still a favourite book and one day soon I hope to visit all the wonderful places where it’s set.

  • 161
    Hlee says:

    My most memorable book is The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. It’s a book I think everyone should read. Makes you really take a look at life’s meaning and the appreciation of the time you are given on earth. It’s a book I’ll never forget.

  • 162

    The Law of Attraction. An eye opener!!!!

  • 167

    The most memorable and the one I go back to again and again is the bible, but I do love to read fiction and biographies.

Great release this month and I want it all…have to try and pare it down now.

  • 168
    Holly Saveur says:

    Cindy C. says:

    “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” by Mitch Albom, an elderly man in a heroic attempt to save a little girl from a falling amusement park ride is killed and sent to heaven. He meets five people from his lifetime who had a significant impact on him. The book is full of great quotes too . . “All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time.”

  • 182
    Betty says:

    one of the last books i read was “the light between oceans” by m.l. stedman – it is the most beautiful story about forgiveness – i feel like crying in very few books and this one was one of them – wonderful writing, wonderful story – memorable – if i was reviewing it i would give it 5 stars!!

  • 183
    Enfys says:

    Birdsong by Sebastian Faulkes vividly bought to life the horrors of the trenches in France and Belgium, and I have re-read it this year during the anniversary events, it was just as moving second time around

  • 184
    Jeni says:

    My most memorable book…that’s a hard one. I guess I’ll go with the Twilight series that was so popular a few years ago. They’re the only books that I’ve read multiple times & couldn’t wait for the next one. Now of course they just collect dust…

  • 185
    Edie B says:

    Too many great ones to name just one but probably the most recent would be the Harry Potter series.

  • 186

    Hands down the Bible!! This is a book I read continually over and over again more and more often than ANY other book. In it you will find adventure, instruction, mystery, history, and on virtually every page – Love! It is a LOVE story : ) The greatest story ever told – Jesus who was and is and is to come : )

    Thank you for the chance to win!

    This might be the first question I actually don’t have an answer for! I’m a big reader and have read many books over the years, but picking the most memorable one is too hard to do….I just can’t do it off the top of my head.

  • 192
    Katie B. says:

    Most memorable is Gone Girl. Only because it’s the last one I’ve read.

  • 193
    Janice Badger says:

    I read “The Hobbit” in 9th grade and did my first ever term paper on it. Opened my eyes to the world of science fiction/fantasy. I still re-read it every couple of years.

  • 196

    I just re-read “The Giver” for my book club (love the stamp set – it will be perfect for our group) and to remember the story before going to see the movie. It continues to be one of my favorite books!

  • 197
    Judy says:

    Books have always had an important place in my life so I would find it difficult to choose the most memorable book. One of many memorable books was To Kill a Mockinbird.

  • 198
    Marianne says:

    The Lord of the Rings (+ The Hobbit). It’s amazing how Tolkien managed to create a fantasy world that seems so real. And of course, there’s the universal theme of right and wrong, good and bad and the thin line between these.

  • 199
    Sue S says:

    I love everything by Wally Lamb,She’s Come Undone is the best. My guilty pleasure is Jodi Picoult.

    Don’t laugh… But I have to say my most memorable book is the Boxcar Children. I have always loved to read and the adventures of those sweet children still thrill me-I can envision the swimming hole they made by damming up the creek.
    PS This release is just gorgeous. Your designers have really put a shine on the holidays!

  • 202

    The Notebook. This will always be my favorite!

  • 204
    Manda says:

    This is such a difficult question to answer! I love reading and always have and there are many memorable books for all sorts of reasons. I’ll say Isaac Asimov’s Foundation though, because I think it was one of the first science fiction books I read and one of the few books I have made time to read again.

  • 205
    Liz H says:

    The most memorable book I have ever read is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – love it! Great release!

    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak has to be the most memorable book I’ve read lately. So beautiful and haunting and heartbreaking.

  • 207
    Beatrice Lawson says:

    Two vastly different books… the Master and Margarita, and Quo Vadis. Both incredible, powerful books that cover the range of human experience from romantic love to religious belief and the absurdity of politics… I re-read them on a regular basis and the new bookmarks will be a great addition to these and other favorite books:-)

  • 208
    Jenelle T says:

    The most memorable book I’ve read besides the Bible is “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. I had never read it and I got curious because the main character of another book I read was enthralled with the idea of Mr. Darcy. Normally, I don’t read books more than once, but I can see myself reading this one every year.

  • 209

    Oh – what a tough question. Probably the most memorable is To Kill a Mockingbird, so many important themes artfully conveyed in a beautifully told tale. Love this month’s release.

  • 210
    Krista T says:

    I would have to say Nancy Drew mystery series. A gift from my mom, these books introduced me to a life long love of learning.

  • 211
    Mendi M says:

    Up to now, I would have to say The Help…so good!

  • 212

    I have read so many great books – it is hard to pick a favorite! If I have to choose just one – Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.

  • 215
    Denise L. says:

    The most memorable book for me is the Helen Keller story. I’m not sure if that is the title but it is the story of Helen & her teacher Annie Sullivan.

  • 216
    Pat Ackley says:

    Oh my! I guess I would have to say Pillars Of The Earth by Ken Follett. I first read it in 1989 and just reread it this summer and the story still captivated me. It’s a good book!

  • 217
    Jilly says:

    Does the Bible count as a “book”? It has all the answers I need and it’s a great instruction manual on life and how we should live it. The Bible never gets tired or boring. Each time I read it, I see something new.

  • 218
    Tammie J. says:

    I am not a big book reader. Between all of the things I read for my career and the magazines I enjoy, there is not much desire to read much else. Plus, my discretionary time is spent stamping! ๐Ÿ™‚ That said, I recently read The Help and thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • 219
    Hanne says:

    My most memorable book is a book that I read in my youth. It was a series and I forgot the name. It was a trilogy of a family in WWI, in the interbellum and in WWII.
    I still know how the story goes, although I don’t remember the author/ name…

    I read sooooo many good books ever since…

  • 220
    sharri reeves says:

    Like everyone else, picking just one book is very hard. “Little Women” has always been a favorite, I guess because I don’t have sisters, but my pick would be “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card. It is such a statement on our society. Prejudice, over population, parenthood, taking responsibility, pushing our children to excel and not letting them just be kids, it’s all in there. Good read.

  • 221
    Angela Graves says:

    It is very hard for me to choose a favorite. As a young girl, I loved the Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden series. If I have to choose just one, the classic “To Kill A Mockingbird”. For my daughter, we are enjoying the series 43 Old Cemetery Road (by Kate Klise) together. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 222
    Vicki A. says:

    When I was younger, I was an avid reader. Recently I have not read as much, but my favorite book recently has been the first Harry Potter book, followed by the rest of the series.

    I would have to say “unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand. Such a great read.

  • 225

    I think it would be the Count of Monte Cristo. That was the first book I remember reading and just completely being drawn into it.

  • 226

    The Witching Hour by Anne Rice.

  • 227

    My most memorable book is Stephen King’s Pet Semetary, read when I was a teenager. I still get a shiver down my spine every time I think about it.

  • 228
    Chong McAfee says:

    Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon. A wonderful coming of age story, love and respect between father and son… I’ve lend this book to a few people and they all bought a copy for themselves to keep. I was very upset when the book ended, not to say it has an awful end but for the face that I am not visiting that world anymore…

    The most important book I have ever read and continue to read daily is the Bible. It is God’s Word speaking to me personally each day if I choose to read!

  • 231
    Colleen F says:

    Thank you for a fabulous release! The ONE book I continue to read daily and study is the Bible. I read several books a week and I must say I like a lot of authors, but Nicholas Sparks writes such heart touching stories that I would say those are my favorites!

  • 232
    Sue Rose says:

    From when I was a kid any book by Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary. One I remember so very clearly was A Wrinkle In Time. As an adult…The Help would be my most recent and the Stone Barrington series by Stuart Wood and of course, anything written by Mary Higgins Clark. I love to read, I could go on and on!

  • 233
    Leigh Penner says:

    I think I would have to say The Harry Potter series. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 235
    Jennifer K says:

    So many wonderful books, but I think To Kill A Mockingbird ranks near the top as one of the most memorable.

    “Journey of Souls” by Michael Newton. Inspiring, thought provoking and comforting.

  • 237
    Michele F says:

    A Woman of Substance – Barbara Taylor Bradford from years ago, but a story of winning while facing many obstacles never gets old.

    “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” by Deepak Chopra. So inspiring, great read to spark your creativity too!

    Besides the Bible, I would say “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott. I love the old-fashioned language & descriptions of the clothing from back then, contained in this book

  • 244
    Shelly Greybeck says:

    My most memorable book is A Child’s Book of Poems but I don’t know the author. My mother used to read poems to me every night. My favorite poem was always The Duel (gingham dog and calico cat).

    The Great Gatsby — it;s the first book I can recall reading that really made an impact on me

  • 246
    Vickie Z says:

    Oh, I have way too many favs…. read every night. One that stands out, at the moment, is My Sisters Keeper. Ending very different than the movie but, a book that I started on the weekend and didn’t put it down until I was finished.

  • 247
    Carol R. says:

    I am an avid reader and the first book that I thought of when I read the question is “Gone With the Wind”.

  • 248

    Definitely “The Lord of The Rings” by JRR Tolkien…however, I read this book, for the first time, over 20 years ago when I was in high school. I’ve re-read it multiple times over the years because it has always been more than just a book and a story. I viewed it more as a poem coming to life, with all the greatness and richness that only a true writer can achieve. Thanks for a chance to win!!

  • 249
    Peggy says:

    “The Handmaids Tale” by Margaret Atwood. It takes place in a future where few women are able to have babies.

  • 250
    Angela says:

    Jane Eyre. I love it because no matter what she’s forced to deal with, she never compromises her principles. And because it’s not about physically beautiful people.

  • 251

    Most memorable book I have ever read is Wonder. Although it is a children’s book, it had great characters, it made me both laugh and cry. The message was to be kind. Everyone cold benefit to tAke heed to that message bit not. Great release.

    It’s like you are asking me to pick a favorite child! May be that my all time favorite is “A Thousand Splendid Suns” by Khaled Hosseini. This book affected me on so many levels, and most importantly, reinforced in me how fortunate I am to be an American!

  • 254
    Melissa S. says:

    It’s o hard to pick just one book! I am an avid reader, so I have a lot of incredible books to choose from. I absolutely love historical fiction, so I guess I would choose Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier. I felt like I was walking with Inman on his journey.

    Kris says:

    Although it is hard to pick one memorable book, I would choose “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott. It was the first book that I became totally immersed in the lives of the characters and loved the characters, so that I felt like they were my family or friends. Great memories, great question!

  • 259

    As I’m originally from Hungary I’ll have to mention a Hungarian author/poet/novelist: Madach Imre and his work titled “Az ember tragediaja” which translates to “The tragedy of the human”.
    But I do read in English too and the book that doesn’t let me forget it is by T. Reisz: The Original Sinners.

    Great release…

    I love reading, so I have many to choose from. I loved The Host by Stephanie Meyer. Terrible movie but an amazing book.

    TracyK says:

    I read so much that it is hard to choose just one. “Gone with the Wind” is a favorite. My favorite children’s book is “Love Your Forever.” Reminds me of my two (now adult) sons!

  • 262
    Bev says:

    It’s hard to choose. I read a lot of mystery stuff and love it for the entertainment and some of them have been pretty darn good. But 2 books stand out as memorable. One, not a mystery. I read it a long time ago but it helped me thru a strange time in my life. It was ‘I’m OK, your’re OK. ‘. And for entertainment one by Stephen king – ‘the girl who loved Tom Gordon’. He is such a masterful story teller.

  • 264
    Sherry says:

    Well, that’s a GREAT question. I’m going to have to pick Jane Eyre. Read it in high school and 50 years later I still have that dog-eared copy. I just love Jane’s strength and how she remained sweet and optimistic despite the odds. Looking forward to checking out books recommended by others! thanks for the great question and for the chance to win!! hugs, Sherry

    I have a lot of books that I love, so this is really hard for me, but just recently I read a book that made a huge impression on me. When I finished it I could not stop thinking about it for weeks. I was completely in love with the two main characters. The book is The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, an amazing book!!

  • 268
    Debi W says:

    Favorite book? That would be like saying a mother saying she has only one favorite child when she has several. I guess I would have to list Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. As a child I read that book and her whole series over and over and began I life long love of reading.

    The most memorable book I have read …. WOW! What a good question…. I would have to say The Book of God: The Bible as a Novel by Walter Wangerin Jr. it is the entire story of the bible written/read as a historical novel. I loved it!!

    A Year By The Sea by Joan Anderson. One of my most favorites recommended to me by one of my most favorite gal pals! A journey about a woman living unconventionally for a year on Cape Cod. Contemplating her life, marriage, family and who she is in this world. Love all of her books!

  • 282

    Carol bu says:

    I know this may seem weird – Edgar Allen Poe’s -The Pit and the Pendulum but you have to hear the reason. My husband read this to me when I was pregnant with our first child. I was very stressed. To take my mind off things what better way then a good classic story!

  • 294
    Michele says:

    To Kill a Mocking Bird resonates with me when we still have inequality in our world even all these years on.

  • 295

    I have to admit, I love Harry Potter. I keep reading the books again and again and never get tired of it. But we recently read a book to our girl and it is about anger, love and how to deal with feelings. It’s so cute and lovable and it made a big impression on me. I don’t think it is available in English, though. In Germany the title is “Der Zauberer Kotzmotz”.

  • 296

  • 298
    Kristinkat2 says:

    This is a hard question for a literature teacher, but I will go with _To Kill a Mockingbird_. Scout, looking from the Radley porch at the end, seeing Boo’s world (and isolation and curiosity and protection and love) is one of the most poignant scenes ever written. She “stands in his shoes” and understands his life. What a rich and ever-true lesson for us all. Thanks for a fun release.

  • 302
    Linda says:

    I love to read and it brings me great joy to have a book in my hands. I have so many that are the best. First I have to say the Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. This was a great love story from the beginning to end and covered the highs and lows of loving someone and growing old together. My next is The Secret and I read a small phrase every morning to start my day. It has changed the way I look at things and how I deal with everyday life. And finally I have to give mention to JK Rowlings and her Harry Potter series I think she is an amazing women. It just warms my heart to see kids reading again and being so excited to do so. I have seen families reading her books together. I love it!

  • 303
    Diana K says:

  • 307
    BA Vella says:

    So many books to choose from and they differ based on what age I read them! The most important book to me is the Bible, God’s Holy Word. Growing up I loved Nancy Drew. In my 30’s I loved Victorian murder mysteries by Anne Perry. Now I love biographies. The one biography that sticks with me is by Darlene Diebler Rose “Evidence Not Seen: A Woman’s Miraculous Faith in the Jungles of WWII”. Amazing read!

  • 308
    Miriam Prantner says:

    I love reading, but one of my all time favorites is Anne of Green Gables. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is another, I’ve loved them both my whole life, and they are still just as good now.

  • 312
    Lynn Hardy says:

    I love all the Harry Potter books by J K Rowling, but if I had to chose just one book it would be “My Family and Other Animals” by Gerald Durrell. It is the true story of a young boy growing up in Corfu, his developing passion for the local animals and countryside, and is interspersed with humorous anecdotes about his eccentric family and the Greek villagers. I read it at school, but it was such a joyous book that I began to read more by the same author (he set up his own zoo on Jersey eventually). In fact I’ve just ordered another copy last week as I’d like my husband to read it too.

  • 313
    richard vd L says:

    I read a lot (or at least try to), so it is hard to pinpoint a most memorable book. But is I have to choose it is a tie between the Harry Potter series or Pride and Prejudice. Two hardly comparables books, but I end up rereading both. (although I have to admit I regularly reread several of the books/bookseries in my bookcase).

  • 314

    That’s a difficult question to answer since I have read so many books over the years. I would have to say The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank which I read at a fairly young age and is a story that has always stuck with me.

  • 315
    Emily Hyvl says:

    Gotta say that “Jane Eyre” is my favorite classic of all time. I recall reading it in high school, & could not put it down. I’ve read it several times since, & just love it. “The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton is a more recent find. I just happened to pick it up on clearance @ Borders, & how lucky was I! I’ve now read all her books, & re-read this one! I highly recommend it.

    Sherry Collett says:

    I’ve always loved to read but I read Love Story during study hour in high school and it was the first book that actually made me cry, and I mean really sob. That’s when I realized how powerful books can be. They can actually grab hold of your emotions anywhere and any time. Books can make you forget where you really are and I love that about about them. You lose yourself in them for a while.

  • 338
    Judy Hanson says:

    One of the best releases yet! It’s hard to pick my most memorable book but I’d say the first really memorable book was Gone With The Wind which I read in the 8th grade. At first thought I’d never be able to finish such a long book but couldn’t put it down, even trying to read at the dinner table (much to the chagrin of my father).

  • 339

    Kelle Williams says:

    I’m not sure if it’s necessarily the most memorable book I’ve read, but one of the most “life impacting” was One Fish Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish” by Dr. Seuss. In my first real job interview, I was asked about my favorite book. This was my answer. I’m told that part of the reason I got the job was my unique and atypical response. I worked at that company for 10 years. It’s where I met two of my closest crafty friends (who introduced me to paper crafting) and where I met my husband. A lot of love and joy…all because of one little book!

  • 342
    Jessica says:

    The most memorable book I’ve ever read was Charlotte’s Web. It’s the first book I really remember reading in kindergarten and I can’t believe how many copies I went through because I’d read them until they fell apart. It really sparked my love of reading!

  • 343

    I would have to say that the Bible is the most memorable (and most important) book I have ever read. I have read it from beginning to end many times. Other than that, my current favorites are the Game of Thrones series. And to those in love with the HBO series, it doesn’t even compare to the books!

  • 344
    TraceyJean says:

    I am an avid reader and many books have touched me for different reasons over the years. As a child, my choice would be The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. As a teen, Flowers in the Attic by VC Andrews. Today, two books come to mind – Intensity by Dean Koontz and Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews.

  • 345
    Nancy M says:

    The Sentinels of Andersonville by Tracy Groot is the LAST memorable book that I read. As the story unfolded, I would frequently stop research additional information about the prison. Because I am an avid reader, my answer could change tomorrow; there are so many amazing books out there to devour.

  • 346
    Christy Cross says:

    I will pick a series instead of just one book, and that has to be the Laura Ingalls Wilder story. Read it as a child and actually just re-read it a couple of years ago. It had such an impact on me as a child that I will never forget.

  • 347
    Susan says:

    The book that was was most important to my life was a book about worry that I read 15 years ago. I worried about everything in my life and people around me started to notice.

    A beautiful release! So excited for Christmas Crafting and the Holidays! It is so hard to pick one favorite book as I have so many favorites! I loved “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott when I was growing up as I have 4 sisters. I also read and re-read the “Little House….” Book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. But I could add so many others to this list! My husband gave me a beautiful hardcover book of Jane Austen’s novels for Christmas one year and I treasure it! I love Pride and Prejudice!

    I don’t read like I used to. I spend most of my free time making cards to sell for my mission fund. I have read the whole series of Little House of the Prairie books. I LOVED them as a girl. In fact I grew up in a town 20 miles from when she lived in Independence, Kansas!
    They are a big part of my reading history!

  • 379

    The first book to ever have an impact on my life is “The Gingerbread Man” because it was the first book I learned to read. I was 5 years old, but I still remember how amazed I felt to be able to read the words and connect them with the pictures on the page.

    Annette P. says:

    I loved the Immigrants by Howard Fast. A wonderful story, as are the remaining books in the series.

  • 381
    SusanP says:

    As far as a non-fiction book, my most life-changing book would have to be the Bible. No other book in history comes even close to changing people’s lives. Other than that, I’m not much of a reader – too many other crafts to keep me busy!

    Judy Stiles says:

    Now that I am retired, I have been doing a lot of reading as it is one of my favorite pastimes. I am concentrating on reading the classics, and thus far, To Kill a Mockingbird, is my favorite.

    Carol D. says:

    This is the hardest question you’ve ever asked!! I have been reading avidly for nearly 60 years and my memory is not so good anymore. But my most memorable read of the last year is The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. My favorite children’s book to read my little ones was The Beast of Monsieur Racine by Tomi Ungerer. We checked that book out every other week and never tired of it.

  • 389
    Mimi says:

  • 390
    Natasha says:

    As a child, it was the Balloon Tree. There was something about the story and the illustrations that always stayed with me.

    As an adult,that’s a bit tough, there’s been so many! Maybe The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel. It was such an interesting story and perspective on early human life.

  • 391
    Jeanne H says:

    I read the Anne of Green Gables as a teenager and it was definitely the most memorable book(s). Even up to now I remember snippets, I guess you really are impressionable at that age.

    Mary Duffel says:

    I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite book.. but I am drawn to “Cry The Beloved Country”, which is written about a father and son during South African apartheid.

    It’s hard to pick just one out of so many good books but I was taken by “The Historian” by Elizabeth Kostova, it makes you live the book….

  • 410
    Dana W says:

    I read a lot, and with time could think of several, but recently I read one about the role (and not in a good way) women played in WW2. I can’t think of the authors name but I believe the title was Hilters Firies, very interesting and sad.

  • 423
    Natasha Kara says:

    Ohhh, this is a hard one. I love reading and there are so many that come to mind for different reasons. BUT I think I am going to go with “Mutant message down under” by Marlow Morgan. Many life lessons that I still draw on.

  • 424
    Sonia Holland says:

    It is really hard to choose just one book that has been most memorable to me…I have been a lifelong reader, and over time I have found that different books have been memorable to me a different times in my life. If I go back, though, the book that still echoes in my heart is “Anne of Green Gables”, and it’s series. I still laugh out loud when I re-read it!

  • 425
    laura mm says:

  • 427
    Kathy A says:

    I’m an avid reader, it started the year our TV broke at the end of the school year and my Dad decided not to get it fixed (until football started in the fall), we joined the reading club at the library and I think the book the sticks in my mind the most is Gone With the Wind, read it 10 times and hated the movie.

  • 428

    the lion witch and the wardrobe got me started on fantasy and i love it

  • 431
    Donna K says:

    Oh so hard to pin down my favorites in this release and hard to pin down one favorite book. I’ll say Gone to Soldiers by Marge Piercy. It’s very hard to forget. Here’s what Amazon says – set in World War II, six women and four men, who fought and died, worked and worried, and moved through the dizzying days of the war.

  • 432
    Norma says:

    There are so many great books, but the Number One book for me is the Bible. For comfort, peace, answers to life’s questions…it has it all. If I had to be on a desert island, that is the one I’d want to have.

  • 433

  • 437
    Ivette says:

    After I saw the BBC version of Jane Eyre, I had to read the book. It has a little of everything in it – romance, tradegy, suspence and of course a happy ending.

  • 438
    Diane Hanson says:

    Well, my favorite, most memorable book would have to be the Bible. Next would have to be Unbroken or The Boys in the Boat. All inspirational books that required pushing oneself to the limits of endurance and coming out all the better for it!

  • 439
    Kim Gyu says:

    Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. Folks say, “Isn’t that a book on dying?” I tell them, “No, it’s a book that tells us how to live.” Great question!

  • 441
    Rebecca Lovell says:

    Thank you so much for all these sketches! My most memorable book – that’s so difficult! I read so much!!! I would be remiss if I didn’t say the Bible. But, The Hunger Games really sticks with me too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 442
    Debs says:

    Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. It’s about a woman’s emotional recovery after her mother died.

    There are so many grownup books I could say, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Dr. Seuss’s “Oh the Places You’ll Go” because I remember rocking my boys to sleep and reading that to them. Such a fabulous release of crafting goodies this month!

  • 456
    Shannon N. says:

    It’s not that it’s my favorite book, but the most *memorable* book for me is Where the Red Fern Grows. It was the first book we read in 7th grade English, and it was the first time I read a book and was devastated by what happened. I was completely unprepared!

  • 457
    Sharon D says:

    When I was 11 or 12, I read a book about a family during the Civil War. The loss and deprivations the teenage sisters suffered really put into perspective for me how much my sister and I had and took for granted. I can’t remember the title of that book, but its lessons stuck with me. It was really a glimpse into another time that captured my imagination.

  • 458
    Zehra says:

    I love books and I read a lot but “Tell Me Your dreams” is one that I have read several times. I love the way the characters are written in that book.

    The Outsiders by SE Hinton.
    All readers have a book that became “that” book for them…
    the one that made them realize how many lives they could lead…
    lands they could visit…
    worlds they could travel…
    just by opening a book and for me it was The Outsiders.

  • 478

    To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I read it while camping as a child after my sister read it for school (she hated it, probably because it was required reading) I couldn’t put it down! Great release!

    “The Comolete Book of Farmyard Tales” by Heather Amery. This is actually a children book by Usbourne, but it holds many wonderful memories as I read this book to all my children when they were still babies and toddlers. Simple stories depicting farm life, with the cutest illustration.

  • 488
    Lori B says:

    Tough question, I read a lot. Maybe The Ladder of Years only because the first time I read it I disliked the main character so much, the second time I totally got her feelings. Different time & place in my life made all the difference, I guess! Great release!

    Georgeanna says:

    This is a hard one, considering I read at least one book a week! Novels, biographies, nature writing, everything! But I would have to say, “Isak Dinesen, The Life Of A Storyteller” by Judith Thurman. Because when I saw the movie, the opening line, “I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong hills.” sent chills up my spine, and I had to know her real life story, which was amazing! Still have it, yellowed and crisp.

  • 491

    I read to relax from the stress in my life so my favourite book are light comedic love stories
    I get a giggle and a smile from them books like Pamela morsi’s Garters but my favourite author is LaVyrle Spencer for her many books especially Morning Glory and Simple Jess
    I was so disappointed when she retired from writing.

    Love the release!

    I have to agree with Casie, my favorite is All Creatures Great and Small by James Harriot. I am from England and his discription of the countryside and vet life is so spot on.

    It’s so hard to pick my most favorite book but two that I’ve read recently which I loved are The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom and Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahim.

  • 521
    Denise Gutshall says:

    I have been an avid reader my entire life and read many different genres of books. But the one that stands out the most is Gone With the Wind. I think because it was a rite of passage book — one of the first adult fiction books I could share with my Mom. A close second is Leon Uris’s QBV11. The atrocities committed by the Nazi’s in terms of “medical research” was something that was not discussed in my junior high and high school classes.

  • 522
    Jane Hogue says:

    “Stars in My Crown” from Joe David Brown was a favorite in high school and still remains so because of the heartwarming characters and the faith they exhibited. I loaned it out one time and it became lost as others shared it and I just had to have it back so I finally found another copy online and I keep very close tabs on it!

    “The Old Neighborhood” by Avery Corman. I read it and cried for the loss of the innocence of the 50s.

  • 526
    Lee Anne says:

    I’m not sure I could narrow down one book that is my favorite. I love to read and do so often. The Harry Potter series will always be beloved to me as will the Narnia series. I love all books and do not have enough shelves! My son has inherited this trait from me,and I can’t wait to make him some bookmarks!

  • 527

    Definately a book I read about 10 years ago, called Rowing Without Oars by Ulla-Carin Lindquist. Ulla-Carin was one of our most well known news anchors here in Sweden, but in 2004 on her fiftieth birthday she was diagnosed with ALS. During her final year she started Writing – the most moving and Beautiful – but also inspiring – story I’ve ever read.

  • 528

    Sushi for Beginners by Marian Keyes – it was my very first book I read in English (I am not a native English speaker).

  • 566
    Sheri Elmont says:

    I thought of the book Loretta Mason Potts by Mary Chase because my grandma was a big reader and when we would visit for 6 weeks every summer she would have bookcases bursting with books and this was one of them. I read it every summer for years and am happy I now have that copy.

    My most memorable book is Barbara Kingsolver’s _Animal Dreams_. I related so much with the main character. That book was the final push that got me back to school to finish up my degrees and motivated me to push all the way thru to my doctorate. I’d say that was a pretty influential book. lol

  • 571

    Charlotte Canning says:

    “To Kill a Mockingbird,” by Harper Lee. It is a timeless story about childhood and growing up through an experience that opened the eyes of a whole generation on the cruelty of bigotry and ignorance. The characters are unforgettable, especially the amazing Atticus Finch, a rare southern man who fights for the life of an innocent black man.

    Sharon Jaeger says:

    What a great question! And I must admit I read over all the previous comments as well to see what great books people like. I am an avid reader…so this is hard.

  • 604

I am, however, going to have to write down some of the books mentioned here. Alas, I will never live long enough to read all the books on my “to read” list!

    The book I’ve love the most is the Pride and Prejudice. I’ve read the simplified version, the translated version, as well as the original!

    Great release. It’s hard to pick just one book, but I keep telling everyone that The Notebook is my favorite, so I will go with that one today.

    Lynne S in GS says:

    As a life-long reader, I have many many book loves, but the one that affected me physically,and emotionally was My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. Not my normal genre, but heart wrenching and thought provoking. (Wonderful release!)

    Lorraine says:

    I really enjoyed Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert!

  • 651

    This is a hard question…I read a lot!! Most recently, the most memorable book is Her Last Breath: A Kate Burkholder Novel set in Amish country. It has some unexpected twists!

    Sandy M says:

    My favorite books are the ones I read with my son when he was small. He is now 44 and I still remember seeing him turn pages on his favorite book about different trucks. His questions about each and every truck meant it took a long time to read that particular book. He was hyperactive and that reading time is memorable because it was the only time he would slow down long enough for us to do one thing together.
    For personal reading it would be all the Harry Potter and the Nicholas Sparks books

    Patti Gingrich says:

    So hard to choose just one. The one that has made the greatest impact is One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.

  • 654
    Shenika says:

    The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz!

  • 655
    Harriet Skelly says:

    If I have to pick just one, Gone With the Wind was the most memorable book I’ve read.

  • 656

    Nilda by Nicholasa Mohr, I could see so many aspects of my own childhood in the story.

  • 657

    A Girl Named Zippy . . .I may be latina and had a very different childhood than what she described but her memoir is one of the most endearing, funny, and interesting one that I’ve ever read

    Malyssa M. says:

    I love reading so to pick a favorite is like trying to pick a favorite child or food! But I have 2 memorable books – both from my childhood. “Posy” by Charlotte Pomerantz was my very favorite children’s book. I would go to the library every second week to take it out! It was out of print at the time so I couldn’t buy my own! And the second was “Anne of Green Gables”by Lucy Maud Montgomery. I loved the entire series and loved that it took place in Prince Edward Island which was a family favorite vacation.

    I love so many books and have read some great ones but my favorites are books that have been fun to read with my kids – ones that have brought us fun and memories.

    Victoria in OHio says:

    of course the BIBLE! but another fave is called Calm my Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow
    very helpful in pointing us to God and trusting Him to bear our burdens.. so many good nuggets in that one!
    i should re-read it every year!

  • 661
    Jill says:

    Seriously, I don’t think I have a most memorable. There are so many. So I decided to go with my childhood favorite, any written by Louisa May Alcott.

  • 662
    Maureen Wilson says:

    “A Child Called It”, it was a true story about the severe child abuse of Dave Pelzer in California. It was compelling and has probably stuck with me more than any book I can think of. My daughter was a toddler at the time, and tears would roll down my face when I was reading it. I just couldn’t believe that someone could do anything like that to their own child!!

  • 663
    Peggysue says:

    Love this release and also VERY excited by Betsy’s new kit coming out on October 1! Choosing one book is near impossible, but perhaps as a series I would select Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis. Read and reread them as a child and when my own kids came along I read them aloud along with an experiment in homemade Turkish Delight.

    Mutzy Mia says:

    The most life changing book I’ve read and continue to read is the Bible. Second would be Catherine Marshalls “The Helper”. It was a gift from my husband on the birth of our second child. I had no idea how much of a “help” it would be…loved it!

    Sandy O says:

    Mandy by Julie Andrews
    It was the last book my mom and I read together. We read it often and I have re-read it since. Very vivid images that have stayed with me over the years.

    Great releases!!!Can’t wait!

    SaraL says:

    Most memorable book, that’s a hard one for me. I enjoy reading and read all different kinds of books. Right now, I am re-reading a lot of the classic children’s books like ones by Beverly Cleary with my kids and am enjoying it.

  • 667
    Erin says:

    I have so many favorite books, it’s hard to pick just one! I still go back and re-read Eat, Pray, Love though. It’s been relevant in my life at so many different points and that life is a journey of self discovery.

  • 668
    Maureen D. says:

    I’m not an avid reader, so I’d have to say it was the first book that I actually read cover to cover, I was 8. It was ‘Chocolate Fever” by Robert Kimmel Smith. I actually used that book as I studied education whenever I needed a go-to book. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 669
    Jelenzini says:

    I think that my favorite book I have ever read is The Catcher in the Rye.

    Wendy Perez says:

    Many, Many books, but the one I remember the most I was forced to read in High School, Anne Frank and that was over 30 years ago. Thanks for such a great release and beautiful examples. You ladies Rock!

    Natalie Winterstein says:

    As an avid reader there are many books I love or have a strong attachment to. Probably one of the most memorable was Savannah by Eugenia Price. All her books are wonderful but that was so captivating to me. I also read the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy in about three weeks. We joke that my husband hardly saw me the whole time! Lol.

  • 672
    Erin S says:

    I don’t know if it is MOST memorable book(s) I’ve ever read, but after reading the Hunger Games trilogy, I could not pick up another book to read for a couple of months because nothing filled the void it left. Haha!

    Ericka S. says:

    Where the Red Fern Grows, I was a teenager and made the mistake of reading it shortly after my beloved dog past away. I have never sobbed so hard before or again while reading a book….but Marley and Me came pretty close ๐Ÿ™‚

    Giovana says:

    One of my favorite books and the one I always come back is “Stolen Lives:Twenty years in a desert jail” by Malika Oufkir. A great book!

  • 675

    Fabulous release, wonderful inspiration … thanks, Nichole and all the team! Most memorable book … The Bible. Anita ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lisa K says:

    Usually my most memorable book is the one I just finished reading at the time. I belong to a book club which is fantastic because it makes me read out of my box. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card was pretty good because it was completely out of my comfort zone. I’m more of a good mystery or “Pride and Prejudice” kind of girl.

  • 677

    To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I first read this when I was around 12 and it really hit me about life and being an adult.

    Thanks!

    I loved Cat in the Hat as a child and can still recite the first few pages, I was delighted when I gave a copy to my 4-yr old niece and she loves it too!

    Bell Canto by Ann Pachett has to be in my top 5. I just finished reading for the second time.

    Danny says:

    I would love to win this for my wife–a PTI fanatic. My favorite story is Unbroken which shows you the human spirit and the perseverance of a soldier when faced with the unthinkable.

  • 681

    I went into withdrawal after I finished the Twilight series, I was so sad it was over. However, I think a Thousand Splendid Suns Khaled Hosseini is the most memorable!

  • 682
    Jo Ann D. says:

    The Bible is my first choice but a book that is not the Bible would be Pride and Prejudice.

  • 683
    Becky Carafa says:

    The whole Anne of Green Gables series!

  • 684
    Felicia says:

    I just finished reading “Orphan Train” by Christina Baker Kline and I couldn’t put the book down!

  • 685
    Cindy C says:

    I’ve always loved “Where the Red Fern Grows”, read it in class in 6th grade. I keep telling my kids about it & they want to read it too!

  • 686
    Kim P says:

    The Afterlife of Billy Fingers. The only book that made the most sense of what happens after we die.

  • 687
    Rebecca says:

    I have a lot of favorites! One of the best I’ve read recently is The Storyteller by Jodi Piccoult.

  • 688
    Jayne says:

    My favorite(s)are the Tolkien Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series. I read them first in high school and do so every ten years or so…guess you can tell I’m not exactly young anymore. I sure know where that gift certificate would go!!!

    Mel says:

    Outlander, when I first was told about the book I didn’t think I’d like it… Time-travel not for me, historical novel, nahhh. But once I started to get to know the characters, it became me home away from home. Love it and I also love that it seems to be never ending.

  • 690
    Becs Attwood says:

    Wow that’s a tough question.I have to go back to a book that made me fall in love with reading & I still read over & over again, Anne of Green Gables.

  • 691
    Maureen W. says:

    The Giving Tree. I loved that book as a kid and still love it today. In fact I bought another copy so I could read it to my kids – what a great message. I love everything by Shel Silverstein!

  • 692
    Laura K says:

    Definitely A Farewell to Arms by Earnest Hemingway. I find it odd that one writer wrote one of the best books I have ever read and the absolute worst I have ever read. How does one man write such a poignant love story one day and a boring rambling story known as The Old Man and the Sea another?

    lisa808 says:

    I read so many books I can’t really think of any one in particular that has been the most memorable.

  • 694
    Anne B says:

    Fabulous release! Well I have a hard time thinking of just one memorable book but one of my favourites of all time would have to be 80 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff.

  • 695
    Tonya Jastad says:

    Anne of Green Gables! I can never get tired of reading it!

    JulieZ says:

    My favorite book comes from my childhood – The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. I used to love to escape to their fantasy world & go on adventures with the characters!
    Fantastic release – you really fed my love of really cool dies and amazing stamps to go with them!

    I have many favorites, but Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach is definitely the most important book I have read. It was given to me by my grandmother, a sweet old lady who didn’t finish elementary, but love reading.
