Salutations and Greetings, I want this to be a book-recommendation thread. There are sections on grasscity for film and music and television and video games, but none for literature or books. Everybody gets to make one recommendation of a book to read. Any book, any genre, any subject, fiction or non-fiction. Feel free to talk and discuss, but the point of this exercise is to distill a wide selection into a single piece of literature. The trick is; don't view the recommendation as a way to represent yourself, be a little impulsive, think of a book you enjoyed and spoke to you. Think of a book that you were sad to close. Never felt that way? Pick one and see how it hits you. If I were to read only one more book in my life - what should that book be?
