    2. Dune, by F. Herbert
    3. The Amber cycle, by Zelazny (an extraordinary cycle, you should try it)
    4. Gormenghast trilogy, by Mervin Peake (it is so poetic)
    5. The hitchhicker's guide to the galaxy, by Douglas Adams
    6. Cryptonomicon, by Neal Stephenson

    I know only one listed is actualy a book and not a series of books but i cant pick my favorites out of them. It just wouldnt be fair to the rest and without the rest of the series the single books arent nearly as good.

    1 Beach Music by Pat Conroy
    2 The Mayfair Witch Trilogy by Anne Rice
    3 The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy
    4 A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar
    5 All of the Lincoln Rhymes series of books written by Jeffrey Deaver
    6 The St. Simons Island Trilogy by Eugenia Price
    7 The House of God by Samuel Shem, MD
    8 Bag of Bones by Stephen King
    9 It by Stephen King
    10 The Stand by Stephen King

    er0k, you've been watching too much David Letterman, you counted yours like a Top Ten list

    Harry Potter, Angels and Demons, and anything written by Anne Rice is in my pile of "read 'til the binding is torn and the pages are falling out" books, and I like almost all of Anne Rivers Siddons books as well. I will read anything you put in my hands, and I really don't have a favorite genre. I have ones I dislike, those being fantasy and romance, but other than that, I'll read just about anything.

    Zombiemann, I read all of the currently released WoT books, but I just didn't like them. Also I don't care for LoTR.
    Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
