    What is your favorite book and why ?

    Hello Everyone,

    What is your favorite piece of literature and why?

    I love to read and learn about anything really. My favorite book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I love that book because of the life principles that I learned from that book; Diligence, Perseverance, Faith, Determination, and much more.

    I would love to know your favorites because the books you read can say a lot about a person.

    Thank you for sharing

    My favorite book is 1984 by George Orwell. This book gives insight into a world that could have been ours. Written in the 40's, Orwell wanted to write what would happen if people became sheep. All through book one it followed a man who struggles with life, having to create lies each day for the news paper, given to people who live care free lives and see freedom in slavery. However he does not love "big brother", a dictator who resembles Hitler rather remarkably. He disobeys through thoughts and a journal which he knows will lead to his down fall. I love this because it reminds people to think each day and that in numbers we are powerful and can do anything we can put our minds to.

    I love how questions as simple as this can be so difficult- there are so many greats that I can hardly pick! Off the top of my head, I might have to say that the Harry Potter series is my favorite (I can't pick just one of the books). Sometimes I enjoy reading books that are considered to be "classics", but my weakness is definitly a good fantasy novel. The Harry Potter series really delivered for me on all accounts; I laughed, cried, and felt pure joy over the course of the entire series.
    If you're like me, you may've read the series during the time you were growing up. I read the series starting in 4th grade and ending in 10th grade, so it's almost like I grew up with Harry! I have to say this is my favorite series because of the pure happiness that reading it brought me, which I honesly think is the best thing that an author can hope for from their readers.
