Mr. Andrew Cashmere recently tipped off the most successful Readers Forum to date by suggesting Voreblog readers share their top 5 albums of all time. We’ll continue in the same vein: What are your top 5 books of all time? Remember, the Readers Forum accepts you for who you are. Be yourself. Who cares if some snob wants to crap on your favorite book of all time even if it’s The Notebook? No, seriously, if it’s by Nicholas Sparks we’ll totally ridicule you. But any other book or author is totally in-bounds. Unless you list Stuff magazine and anything by Tucker Max. Then you’ll be virtually and publicly shunned.
Otherwise, welcome to the Readers Forum IX!
The wrinkle: One of the books must be a childhood favorite. And we strongly encourage (but will not discredit you if you fail to include) comics (like, say, “Calvin & Hobbes” or “Bloom County” anthologies if these were deeply influential during your formative years) and/or graphic novels. That’s literature too, people.
Bonus points if you list Phil Jackson’s Sacred Hoops.*
