    The Incredible Journey of Edward Tulane - a children's story that really isn't about a toy rabbit who ends up living with many different people throughout his lifespan and how he eventually learns to care about others and to love even when it means the pain of loss.

    Same author as the Tale of Desperaux (although if you have seen the movie, it is not at all like the book!). Also by her - A Tiger Rising, written for young adults (I usually hate that genre) but it is a wonderful story.

    The Velveteen Rabbit - children's story. Warning for overactive imaginations in NF children: do not keep a copy of childcraft encyclopedia on childhood diseases in the house. I was positive that my tongue looked like the girl's in the picture and that I had Scarlet Fever like the kid in the book and all of my dearest things would have to be burned to eradicate the germs!

    Oh god, the Velveteen Rabbit. My mother thought I was insane for how much the movie version made me cry.

    Oh overly sensitive NFs,... a couple of years back I felt so guilty trading in my first CAR because it hadn't broken down completely and it was like I was betraying it. Didn't help that they gave me the base amount it was worth. I wanted to yell at them that it had more worth than they gave it credit for. Haha.

    Hmm, if we're gonna go there - Charlotte's Web.

    I liked Aesop's Fables growing up. And Brer Rabbit. Little did I know it was speaking to my budding Fi? Or no?

    ^ YES. the velveteen rabbit (never saw the movie, though) killed me. i also remember a film version of the secret garden that begins in india, and the little girl's doll is thrown into a fire on camera (i forget why.. brideburning? har har) but maaan that shook me, too..

    am finding much difficulty in cleaning things from my parents place, as there is much there that i can't bear to toss out..

    I've not felt myself agreeing more with any author in my life. Except maybe for Ovid. But his stories don't count here (lol).
    I was totally at that lecture, but the auditorium filled to capacity right before I was allowed in, so I went backstage and wished Randy good luck on his speech

    My votes:
    Revolutionary Road - Richard Yates
    Anything by Haruki Murakami (he's an INFP through and through)

    The Four Agreements by that Native American author guy of the Toltec tribe

    My favorite book above all others ever written or to be written is by my favorite author. The book is the Bible. A book that actually reads you as you read it. Fascinating.
    I agree totally. (Don Miguel Ruiz is that Toltec guy.)

    Yes! Murakami is another excellent NF-friendly author. Which book of his is your favorite?

    And now that so many great children's books have been mentioned, I have to add the A Wrinkle In Time series and anything Roald Dahl to the list.

    I really enjoyed After the Quake, one of his short story collections. I've always appreciated someone who could pull off a good short story. What about yours?
