If I could I would ingest books intravenously (I've tried nasty paper cuts), suffice it to say I'm always looking for new stuff to read. So post your favorite book or author!

I'd have to say my favorite is either The Fountain Head or Atlas Shrugged both by Ayn Rand.

I'd also like to mention Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay, because I love the show Dexter and the books are even better.

Douglas Adams - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman - Good Omens

J.R.R Tolkien - The Hobbit (one of the newer publications)

Arthur Conan Doyle - Sherlock Holmes

I like most Terry Pratchett's novels. H.P Lowecraft's work is good too.

The Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follet

Yes, that is a great book. I wish Ken Follet stuck to writing historical fiction, he writes it well. (I know he didn't initially start off writing historical fiction but I still wish he would stick to it.)

Thanks for posting your favorites, keep them coming. :surprised:

Yea, Fitzgerald is awesome, I was pleased to see my English Comp class this semester has a collection of 18 short stories of his. He is so vivid with his imagery it's unreal.

I love the Catcher in the Rye by Salinger, Holden Caulfield is relatable, it's like reading my own point of view.

Edit: I just realized how big of a literature dork I am. Hah! oh well...
