    I have 2 different series that i particularly enjoy and that is:

    Game of Thrones: By George R. R. Martin

    Xanth Series: By Piers Anthony

    i also like the Artemis Fowl series and of course Harry Potter

    Books:

    Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is a very interesting read

    There is a book i read called Dragonhome By John Peel that i believe is part of a series but is very good book as well.

    Brave New World is strange but very good. I really enjoyed it...but it is very bizarre. Reminds me of 1984 in a lot of ways.

    Actually, anything by Adams and Lovecraft is a total win for me.

    +1

    Couldn't agree more. Most of my pen & paper roll playing days were Call of Cthulhu. (Would love to maybe entertain the idea of doing a Forum-based session)

    It's VERY hard for me to pick a favorite. My favorite would change depending on what I'm in the mood for.

    However, the book that would probably stick out in my mind the most would be Stephen King's IT. Mainly because it was the first book I've read without pictures. It was the book that started my love for reading.

    This idea intrigues me. Start a thread about it? I'm sure it'd generate interest. Grin

    The thing i thought was interesting is how this could become a reality. No joke it could happen.

    Anything by Christopher Moore is great. He's funny, sort of surreal, and always has a great story to tell. And, of course, his vampire series that started in '96 is way better than any of that shit that's out today.

    Has anyone else here read American Gods by Neil Gaiman? I think people here should read American Gods by Neil Gaiman. You would all probably enjoy it greatly, what with all them old gods and Americana wrapped into one huge adventure story.

    Is it obvious I liked American Gods by Neil Gaiman? I hope it's not too obvious I liked American Gods by Neil Gaiman. If you are reading this you should be reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman instead, it's more interesting and in bigger text.

    Thought I had posted here, but I obviously hadn't.

    I haven't had much time to read during the last year, which is a bit of a shame. But I used to read alot during my school days. My favourite books from before my hiatus from reading were:

    The entire audiobiography of David Pelzer (A boy called 'it'-series).

    'The heroin diaries' by Nikki Sixx.

    'Where eagles dare' by Alistair MacLean.


    I am hoping to pick up my old reading habbit again soon, as I miss reading the way I used to.

    Also of note is Never Let Me Go. Fantastic soft sci-fi with a whole lot of emotion and heartbreak.
