Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.
This one is especially difficult to narrow down because the point of books is to conjure a place (or a time. Or a time and a place) for the reader. And I am blessed with one of the reading styles that can be described as full-immersion reading. It is as close to an out of body experience as I will ever have.
So, there isn't a "best" book for me. There are hundreds of books that have conjured for me a place, real or fantasy, current, past, or future. The three books I've picked are just a few examples of different places that books have taken me. In my mind.
