Enjoyable Books

I love technology and I enjoy a good book!  People often ask me if all I ever do is sit in front of my computer;  so here is the long awaited answer….. No, I need balance in my life.  I enjoy walking, spending my time with my family, taking pictures, and I enjoy sitting down to read a good book in my cozy recliner wrapped in a blanket.  One of my all time favorite books is Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls.  What is your favorite book and why do you enjoy it?
