What’s your favorite book and why?

I consume books voraciously (as is fitting a writer, I suppose) so I have no exact favorite. My perennial loves, however, include the works of Jacqueline Woodson, J.R.R. Tolkien, bell hooks, William Carlos Williams, and Ursula K. Le Guin, and assorted comics titles that inspire in me a range from joy to despair. My world would be far smaller and certainly less bright without books.
