Erlanger Staff Favorite: Part 2

Recently, Erlanger staff had a fun competition where they anonymously submitted their five favorite books of all time, then tried to guess which books matched with which staff member. Here are a few of their favorites, including some favorite quotes and why they love the books on their lists. Look for the display near the entrance of the Erlanger Library to check out some of these books for yourself! Chris Walters, Library Associate The Lord of the Rings trilogy – J.R.R. Tolkien Why I love it: The most involved epic story ever. LOTR has all the trappings of the hero's journey within an incredibly detailed world with history, verse, and wonderful characters.

Look for the display near the entrance of the Erlanger Library to check out some of these books for yourself! Hannah Ash, Library Associate The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald Why I love it: I fell in love with this book while reading it during my junior year of high school. Normally, I'm the odd type who enjoys reading the books teachers assign, but this one is, and I believe will be for quite a while, my favorite book. Favorite quote: “Angry, and half in love with her, and tremendously sorry, I turned away.” Turtles All the Way Down - John Green Why I love it: Reading this book, I didn't want it to end. It was a wonderful story to keep my mind going. I related to the main character more than I ever had in any other novel. Favorite quote: “It’s a weird phrase in English, in love, like it’s a sea you drown in or a town you live in. You don’t get to be in anything else—in friendship or in anger or in hope. All you can be in is love.” Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Johnathan Safran Foer  Why I love it: I read this novel in my sophomore year of college, and immediately fell in love with it.
