What are your favorite books? What are you reading?

I noticed we didn't have a book forum, so I decided to ask. What are your favorite books of all time, and what have you been reading lately?

i like this satire author named Christopher Moore.  i first borrowed his book Lamb from a friend and i was hooked!

for childrens books ive always liked  Roald Dahl's stuff.  a personal favorite of mine, Fantastic Mr. Fox, is being made into a childrens animated movie with Geoge Clooney as the foxes voice. (2009 release)

I'm currently reading The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell.  Really good so far.

Not too long ago I finished reading The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly which was amazing!  Loooved it.

I also love anything by Paulo Coelho, anything (non-fictional & fictional) having to do with the court of King Henry VIII, biographies, the Harry Potter series, Lisa See, Chuck Palahniuk, poetry, Love in the Time of Cholera...I could go on and on.  I am such a book nerd! (If you couldn't tell by my enthusiasm over this thread. Smile)

My current travel book (I haven't had time to read it other than when traveling these past few months) is called Simple Genius.... I'm beginning to think it's the perfect book.... 

It's got Ex Secret Service peoples... Psychologist... a little Autistic Girl.... Murder... cover up... Private Investigators... CIA... FBI.... conspiracy... what I think is a love story between the two main character, but that hasn't fully panned out yet... a mental institution... codes... computer geniuses... inventing... good history (it works in Allen Turing and Charles Babbage).... Numbers (really friggen big ones)...... a piano......... an Olympian....... crazy people... secret rooms.............

LOL, I know that sounds like a lot is going on, but a lot of those are the same people.... and it's really not as busy as it sounds... it's done perfect (so far).......... I'll let you know when I finish......

Other than that, umm.. two of my favorite books that I *HAVE* completed... Slaughter House Five..... and Hot Plastic (couldn't put that one down for anything... showered and ate with it... didn't really sleep much for those 2 days)

I like to read a lot of original stories though that haven't been published.... I find them on the interwebz.... there are a lot of great writers out in the world that keep me up wayyyy past my bedtime...........
