When I was a kid I used to secretly borrow (not steal) books from the library and my school all the time, rarely finished em but I still read them

Can't even find the attention span now, what happened man. I remember this big book with a lot of pictures of like reptiles, or just alligators or smthn, that was great, that one I did steal

Bambi by Felix Salten is my go-to "favourite book" that I tell people. I read far too much to really have a favourite, though. But if I had to recommend one book I thought hardly anyone has read that I *know* is, like, universally good, I'd say Bambi. Obviously nothing like the movie.

Why the Necronomicon, of course. Nothing was ever the same after that experience...nothing was ever something...something like that.

Blindness by José Saramago, Island by Aldous Huxley, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, 11/22/63 by Stephen King and Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. I am probably forgetting some, but these are 100% part of my being.

EDIT: Oh! The Bothers Karamázov by Dostoyevsky. How could I forget this one?

I have a lot of favorites, but my first favorite book ever, the first one that every really made me cry is the The Outsiders, by S. E. Hinton.
