Well let's get this topic off the ground. What are everyone's favourite books and why?
Mine is Lord of the Rings. I love books with an old, fantasy setting and massive amounts of detail in them.

   I love any book by Raymond E. Feist set in the world of Midkemia. They were the first proper books I read, even though I was only 7 at the time. So, i've always been into the more Adult side of Fantasy, preferring to stear clear of books like Harry Potter, and similar books.......

I'll post a list only if people ask for it....it's stupendously long

My Dad first read me LOTR when I was 6. I kept stopping him so he could explain parts to me ^_^.

Brisingr had the WORST and most predictable ending to an Eragon book there is. :(

I heard Twilight (yea, the one movie based on the book) is good.....or so they say. :P Most of the guys I hang out with have never read it. ::)

If you can get your hands on a Trudi Canavan book. She's a good author. If your looking for something a little more adult then Iain Banks is a good bet.

Not a big fan of tragedy myself... Mainly thanks to good ol' Shakespeare... After studying Romeo and Juliet in english I found I hated the entire genre...
