    In terms of enjoyment, I really like A Year in Provence. If we're talking more literary, then The Sun Also Rises. Edith Hamilton's Mythology is also a great primer on the classics. For biographies, there are so many great ones, but maybe Richard Osborne's biography of Herbert von Karajan.

    There's tons of books I read and re read, but the lord of the rings come to mind as a favorite. I liked the whole chronicles of narnia, I know its a childs book but I still love them all.

    Got a first printing and a copy of Rolling Stone that the first excerpts were in. The RS was amazingly cheap, because it was poorly listed on ebay.

    Kerouac's "On The Road" is my go to answer. I've read it 5 or 6 times and keep a copy in my bag. I've also listened to it on CD in the car. Something about all the post WWII era and discovering the rest of America is fascinating to me.

    And then truthfully anything about 'the road' in other stories... Slash's bio was a good one and also "The Dirt" from Motley Crue. Campaign stories, travel diaries, "Boys on the Bus" that kind of stuff.

    I don't have a favorite book (I like too many), but my favorite series would be Robert Parker's "Spencer" series.
