ask me anything meme - day 09 (oct 9th)  
What are your top 5 books that you enjoy? flirting

Thank you for asking me my top 5 and not my top 3 or my favorite... It's so difficult when it comes to books! Even choosing just 5 was a difficult task! LOL

I'll do a top 5 books at the end of the year with my favorite books among what I read this year! And I hope to be able to do it every year! This list hasn't changes in a long time... Position number 5 changes occasionally, but number 1 and 2 are pretty strong!

This list is quite weird because all the books are extremely different as for topic, form and language.

My all time top 5 is:
1. Hamlet by William Shakespeare I've loved this book since the first time I read it and I saw every movie it came out about it! I think it's Shakespeare greatest work and the best play of all times!
2. The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet I read this book many times! I love the story and I love way the characters are written. They are so human!
3. La Lenteur (Slowness) by Milan Kundera Again another book I go back to often! The best among the other books by Kundera
4. Novecento by Alessandro Baricco Amazing monologue! I wanted Eric to read it but I can't find an english copy, but the movie The Legend of 1900 with Tim Roth is based on this book. If you can;t read the book, watch the movie.It's a masterpiece!
5. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss so moving and so well written! I love this author!

I haven't actually read any of these, but I have The History of Love on my to-read-list. I've heard a lot of good things about it!

You're going to fall in love with the way Nicole Krauss writes... I read just 2 of her books (I have another one in my list but I'm waiting because I love her so much and i want to keep that book for a time I need something to read I know it's going to be good! :)

If you want to be endlessly amused, you should check out the To Be or Not To Be: A Chooseable Path Adventure which is a hilarious Hamlet parody where you make choices for Hamlet or Ophelia and it is hilarious, especially if you know Shakespeare.

I've decided that this coming April, I am TOTALLY going to have a Shakespeare party...because I am a nerd and dammit I bought a house so I could do nerdy things like that!
