August 9th is Book Lover's Day!! Since we are all book lovers here at Campbell, we wanted to celebrate by sharing a list of our all-time favorite books. Choosing one single book is a difficult task for any book lover, but we faced the challenge head-on and discovered that we have a pretty diverse bunch of readers here. We hope you enjoy our list, and with any luck maybe you will find your new favorite from amongst one of ours. Celebrate Book Lover's Day with us by letting us know what you think of our favorites, or adding your own favorite to the comments.
"Little Women is one of those books that feels like an old friend. I first read it when I was twelve years old and every few years I read it again to see how I have changed and grown along with the characters."
" I read this book when I was a young girl, and it opened my eyes to life in a different time and culture. The book inspired me to continue seeking other adventures between the pages of books. I spent many a night, huddled under the covers with a flashlight, reading."
"It was my daughter's very first book. Having her on my lap, we read together (she had her own way of reading) over and over almost everyday. When she was a little older, she read the book to all her stuffed animals. There were other books, "I Hear" and "I Touch," but somehow "I See" was the one we liked."
"Interview with the Vampire enthralls you into a world in which you can't imagine living without and then it throws you into an oppressive darkness that you can't escape from quickly enough. Death, seduction, torment, and love bring the vampires of Anne Rice's imagination into your life where they inhabit your consciousness forever."
