A book that'll always be a favorite of mine is Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. It's a classic, despite the author being pretty much an asshole outside of his works.

I can't really think of any others right now, except for HHGTTG which Dreamaker was nice enough to remind me of.

Oh, and for all the Twilight fans; Try Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite that I just read. Not a favorite per say, but worth a read. It's basically a big mix of violence, drugs, angst, sex (of the non christian variety) and goth music. Also, it's about vampires doing those things. In other words, it's about real vampires ;)

EDIT: Forgot about Harry Potter. My bad.

Blarg told me about Enders game. It sounds like such a cool book.

My personal favorites are:

Legend of Drizzt series - R.A. Salvatore

The Death Gate Cycle - Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman

"His Dark Materials" isn't as good as a story as the first two I listed, but it's the first book that I actually enjoyed reading, and it's the book that got me into reading more books. It has more sentamental value than anything.

I read a lot of textbooks, no I’m not in school or taking any courses. I just like to learn stuff, lots of different stuff. I get collage texts at tag sales and have a collection ranging from 1800s steam engines to nuclear physics and psychology to law. For fiction I’m a big Tom Clancy fan, Red October being my favorite. Jules Verne, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimove and H. G. Wells are up there too.

I have a library card and use it.

Slaughterhouse 5 and 1984 are hands down the best books ever, IMHO.

I'm glad you said Lost Soul's or I would have forgotten about that one. You're right, probably not great literature, but a great read. I still have it on my shelf.

I'm just finishing "Girl Interrupted", a great read. I'm also finishing Stephen King's "On Writing". I enjoyed "Salem's Lot", "The Green Mile", "It", "Desperation", to name a few. I love "Catcher in the Rye" and "Lord of the Flies". They tell me things about myself. I also love "Portrait of an Artist" by James Joyce. I'm big into poetry, and Artur Rimbaud is my god.

I almost forgot: The Tolkein trilogy and The Hobbit, and Terry Brooks Shanarra series.

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold - John le Carré

The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R Tolkein

Hitchhickers Series - Douglas Adams

Most of the Discworld Series - Terry Pratchett


I have also really enjoyed His Dark Materials and the Bartimeus Trilogy, but not as much as the ones above. I have also liked Terry Pratchetts books for younger people, but not as much as that world upon the back of four elephants upon the great A'tuin, him (or her) being a giant space turtle.
