My Heartbeat by Garret Freymann-Weyr. All of her books are enjoyable to me. But this one has been my favorite since I was in sixth grade.

I'm going to have to go with the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy series purely for having the most original comedy in it and a completly imaginative set of plots.

That is a good book...and as far as the movies, I prefer the original.

Haven't seen the movies.

From what I heard (from Douglas Adams himself) when the author tried to get the series published in america they had to undergo "americanisation". Removing some of the most original jokes there, the classic joke about watches was replaced by a cheap pathetic substitute about cellular phones becuase "watches" weren't "modern enough". All of the names and locations in the 1st book had to be changed because "they weren't in the U.S" such an act is ridiculous and, I believe, slightly prejudice.

The Harry Potters will forever be one of my favorite series.

Anything by Kurt Vonegut (sp) is genius. My favorites are Timequake and Catch 22.

I used to love fantasy growing up, and David Eddings had some great epic books.

For mystery and suspence Agatha Kristi (Agatha Krispies if you saw House of a Thousand Corpses when they were serving rice krispy treats, thought that was funny) is one of the best.

War books = Ken Follet hands down. Also really deep in other areas as well.

Best book ever though is Lord of the Rings.

I mention the rest because when you say "Lord of the Rings" you sound like maybe you really don't read. But the way he pulls you in during the first book, everyone can relate to being a hobbit and afraid in the woods when some unknown is chasing you - yet it's complete fantasy - yet everyone can relate.

It takes an incredible amount of talent to do that to a reader. Few can pull that off.


Human Action--Ludwig von Mises

Man, the Economy, and the State with Power and Markets--Murray Rothbard

My favorite book is aspiring writer Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery". I just sat on a resource that has book overviews and found it there. Now I reread this book every time I feel sad or just want to have fun. By the way, here's a small excerpt you can see for yourself. It combines genres like horror thriller and biography-drama about a man who put everything on the line and won even more than expected. But it wasn't that simple. Very cool book :)
