 My Favorite Great Book is Vanity Fair.

My favorite Great Book quotation is from the Book of Genesis, the passage when Adam and Eve have just eaten the forbidden fruit: "And they heard the voice of / the Lord God  walking in the / garden in the cool of the day. . . ."  I love the idea of God being a visible presence and being physically close.
