The "Our Favorite Book's" thread.

I don't think this has been done in a while and I'm sure most of you will view this as an easy thread to pump.

My most favorite books include:
All the "LOTR"'s
All of A. C. Carkes "Space Odyssey"
"Dune"
...many others.

I don't want to pump (don't care about the post count) but here they are:

English Books:
1984 - George Orwell
Brave new world -Aldous Huxley
The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy - Douglas Adams
Many stories and poems by E. A. Poe

French Authors:
Le petit prince - Antoine de St. Exupery
Michel Houellebecq (what a name!)
Baudelaire (have just read some of his poems though)

German authors:
Bertolt Brecht
Das Parfum - Patrick Suesskind

I probably forgot a lot, just a quick list with what first came into my mind...

C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia
Terry Brook's Shannarah Series

I can't forget those "Make your own adventure" books where you choose the fate of the main character and then you have to turn to the page that corresponds to the fate chosen. Those were cool.

Manga books include Love Hina and Initial D (Although I think they don't count as much as the Sonic comic books made by Archie that I also read... )

Novels include anything done by Stephen King...

Guide books include the TechTV books (Aren't I lame... -_-;; )

As well as "The Cat Who..." books. They're at a Middle School reading level, but I don't care...I enjoy them for the hell of it. The back cover may make it seem boring, but if you actually read it, it's quite funny and entertaining...

I have a couple other books, but I forgot what they're called, or who wrote them...

A very close Japanese friend I knew a while ago once said to me "Watashi no koto wo oboeta, onegai shimasu...Yakusoku?"

I forgot his name though...

FOrgot that in my list ... I've been to a bar/ Pizza Restaurant in Rome once which was called "La divina comadia" and they had the whole thing written on the wall, they had three rooms (of course called "Inferno" Purgatorio" and "Paradiso") with different colour scemes, that was soo awesome (the pizza was grreat too!)

I think they should make more reastaurants with famous books as role models.

I wouldn't be too bothered about that mate, a great volume of those are utter, utter drivel. Although some of the collections of shorter stories (i.e Tales From Jabba's Palace) are quite entertaining. Steer clear of the two Bounty Hunter Wars books, I couldn't even finish the second one and I usually *love* any thing to do with Boba Fett.
