Celebrities’ Favorite Books:

Annette Spickard (McCall City Manager)
Give and Take by Adam Grant

J.K. Rowling
Emma by Jane Austen 
"Virginia Woolf said of Austen, 'For a great writer, she was the most difficult to catch in the act of greatness,' which is a fantastic line," Rowling said. "You're drawn into the story, and you come out the other end, and you know you've seen something great in action. But you can't see the pyrotechnics; there's nothing flashy."

Bill Murray
“Well, my favorite author is Mark Twain. He’s smart, and funny. Huckleberry Finn, especially the chapter all the purists hate, in which Tom Sawyer stages an elaborate rescue of Jim, is a writer having as much fun as possible.

Alec Baldwin
“Well, when I was a child, my favorite book was The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. I loved that book.”

Kobe Bryant
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Michelle Obama
Life of Pi by Yann Martel “He is adventurous, resourceful and able to live in a precarious situation.  The White House is kind of like a boat on the ocean.” 

Billy Joel
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain

Stephen King
Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Bill Nye
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein

Mark Zuckerberg
The Aeneid by Virgil. The Facebook founder originally read The Aeneid in high school Latin class, and we like to think Virgil’s classic got his wheels turning. In an interview with The New Yorker, Zuck recounts the story of Aeneas’ quest to build a city that “knows no boundaries in time and greatness.” Sound familiar?

According to the NWS McCall had a February snow depth of 75 inches back in 1952 which is the current record!
