Hilary Swank's favorite books:

"Hilary Swank: To Kill a Mockingbird, I would say is still my favorite book and was one of the most moving books I remember reading as a child. I just loved it. Scout, this little girl who felt like she was going through so many similarities that I was going through, it was just a wonderful reminder that I wasn't alone, really, in a way."

"HILARY SWANK: You know, I loved that book, "Eat, Pray, Love.” ("Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia” by Elizabeth Gilbert). That was a great book, and I love to travel and I've been to a lot of those places and so obviously it was good timing for me."
