In Response to Re: A good book....:
I have every book John Steinbeck ever wrote .... ditto for James Michener and Sinclair Lewis. Of the older books -- 1800s -- I have all the Jane Austen, Ann and Charlotte Bronte, Thomas Hardy.... lots more These all are paperback - much read and handled - much loved.

I love all these classics that you listed as well and am enjoying re-reading books that I read in high school or college. Age and experience brings a different interpretation on these stories. Recently re-read Fahrenheit and 1984.
Other authors I am enjoying are Jodi Picoult, Carl Hiaasen and Herman Wouk. Also love to read biographies, especially by David McCullough.
