Favorite Books I just read some Billy Collins and really loved him. I enjoy Bill Bryson. I am of the opinion that everyone should read Proust Was a Neuroscientist by Jonah Lehrer. The Brothers K by David James Duncan is an excellent read as well. The Anne of Green Gables series and Emily of New Moon series...they are the only books I have ever sat down and re-read all the way through. And The Flavia de Luce mystery series written by Alan Bradley. I could go on, you know...

Chicken monkey shoes?
