      Favorite books

      What are some of your most beloved books of all time? Fiction? Non fiction? Graphic novels? List them all here! Recommend me some good literature! Oh and be sure to give a brief description of the book!

      My absolute favorite book series is the song of ice and fire saga. It's absolutely brilliant. It's a fantasy series that starts without any of the fantasy elements, no magic, or fantastical creatures, just humans fighting an ultamtley pointless war for "the iron throne". You may be familiar with the new television show named after the first book, "a game of thrones". I highly recommend this to anyone who likes good literature.

      Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I have the whole "guide" in a large "complete and unabridged" book containing all five books in the "trilogy." Lost the cover to it, though. But it's a great series, and not just because of the meaning of life.

      A great series that I highly recommend is "The Last Dragon Chronicles" by Chris d'Lacey. It's one of those series where the first book is slow but each book after really takes off, improving the series as a whole. The last book came out recently and I needs it!

      ASOIF is a favorite of mine too . You might like Stephen Eirikson's 'Malazan Book of the Fallen' series too.

      You have one week to hug me
      and tell me why I am your
      friend. After that, I will
      remove the ones that do not
      hug and miss them forever.
      Part of my therapy.

      Ooh I'll have to check out. The only things I've read by him that were not Artemis Fowl (Which is freakin' awesome, by the way), are Half-Moon Investigations and ...And another thing.

      At the moment, my absolute favorite is the Dune series by Frank Herbert. However, I have enjoyed the prequels written by his son just as much. That series is the pinnacle of sci-fi for me.

      However, the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Dan Brown's work are up there too. You can hate on me all you want for Dan Brown, but I really won't give a damn.

      Also enjoyed A Study In Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle quite a bit.

      Omaigurrrddd. I love that trilogy. Have you read the Dirk Gently novels? I think I might like them a little bit more, but really it's hard to say.

      Also I'm starting to get into Michael Crichton, and I have Game of Thrones, but I haven't read it yet. it's a big book.

      Shoot! I was going to make a thread of this when I got home! Nice thinking though.
      Okay favorite books:
      #1. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. It's funny, extremely well written, smart, thought provoking, and super visual with words! Many a great quote come from this book.
      #2. The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Need I say more? Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is a genius!
      #3. Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. I doesn't get more thought provoking than this. Major gut check. Makes you definitely think about your life and how you should live it.
      #4. The Elements of Cooking by Anthony Bourdain. As an aspiring chef this is a must have. So much thought and detail put into every little thing. Not only does he tell you the best way to do things, he explains why with a voice of experience.

      I got more, but this will do for now. Plus this was written off the top of my head at work

      I have the same Sherlock Holmes collection. It's an amazing set of great writing.

      And since you've read The Screwtape Letters, what's that like? I've always wanted to read through it, but I'm just unsure about it.
