What are your favourite books?

I've recently read 2 books by Paulo Coehlo - The Alchemist & The Devil and Miss Prym, recommended to me by an expert in reading - who is an amazing person that has changed my life!

I love to read.

These are my current fave...

LOTR Trilogy - J.R.R.Tolkien
Brog The Stoop - Joe Boyle
Tales of The Otori Trilogy - Lian Hearn
Harry Potter Collection - J.K.Rowling
Forgotten Realms series - R.A.Salvatore
Anything by Shakespeare
Anything by Edgar Allen Poe

Hmm...that's all I can think of at the moment.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

I pretty much like everything that isn't bulls***.

Let's see...I used to read a lot. I've cut down a little due to lack of time:

Atlas Shrugged
The Fountainhead
Sydney Sheldon books(all of them)
Mario Puzo books(Godfather, The Family, The Last Don)
Works by Alexandre Dumas (count of monte cristo, three musketeers, man in the iron mask)
Billy Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet, Othello, Macbeth, Hamlet, A Midsummer night's dream, Titus Andronicus, King Lear, As you like it, Much ado about nothing, and his poetry)
Sophocles' philosophical plays and stories (The Oedipus Cycle)
Homer's The Odyssey
Plato's The Cave
Socratic Logic
Herge's Tintin
There's a crapload more, I can't remember them right now. It's too early.

Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead and Anthem are really great reads, defining a new (well, old now) type of philosophical thinking. Go read them.
Choke is about a sex maniac who fakes choking on his food in restaurants to get attention and cash.
Sydney Sheldon books are just fun to read. He mostly uses women as the main characters for his stories, which is pretty fresh.
Who the hell doesn't like LOTR?
Puzo? Come on, its the Godfather. Totally DP.
Alexandre Dumas was the man. Totally. The Count of Monte Cristo is awesome. Go read it if you haven't. It's totally DP.
Who the hell doesn't like Shakespeare?
The Odyssey is easily one of the world's best adventure stories. Go read it.
I really wouldn't recommend The Cave or Socratic Logic to anyone. It's a personal thing.=)
Tintin, for all of you who don't know, is a comic strip written by a French journalist, who's dead now, Herge. He wrote about all the events happening during his era, and in some ways, he was way ahead of his times. Tintin is a great read. It's the only other french thing I enjoy, other than their wine.

Oh yeah, and read War and Peace. Just to be an asshole.

Im currently reading 'Getting Everything You Can Out Of all You've Got' By Jay Abraham.

For those that have a business I recommend this book.

"PULLMAN" - Stanley Buder (my college professor!)
"The Giver" -
"Lord of the Rings: Trilogy" - J R R Tolkein
"The DaVinco Code" -
"Breakfast of Champions" - Kurt Vonnegut
"Slaughter House V (5)" - Kurt Vonnegut
"Stardust" - Neil Gaiman

stardust is a really well written book about a wish that comes true, well actually, its a graphic novel.

both the Vonnegut books are for mature readers cause if you cant stand a little foul language, be warned, but both are excellent, theyre both about the choices in life written through a very satyrical (sp?) format.


The Giver is a book about a perfect future, its a book that you read as a kid and when you read as a grown up, its a totally deeper book in all aspects.

Pullman is not a story, its a historical text and its about the perfect town built by the man named pullman, but it didn't work out because people were too busy trying to be rowdy by getting drunk and sleeping with hookers... its written by my college professor and he had us read it, i ended up buying it cause i lieked it so much.
