What books have made your list of all-time favorites? I'd be interested in hearing recommendations of both fiction and nonfiction.
One of my favorites is "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini (2003). It's a captivating story of two young Afghan boys, their friendship and the life-altering consequences of one's actions. Set partly in Afghanistan, it offered a fascinating look at a history and culture that I knew very little about.
