Books?

Have you guys ever read any books you liked a lot? My favorite ones...

The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Trilogy-JRR Tolkien
Dune-Frank Herbert(i want to read more books from that series)
The Odyssey-Homer
Jurassic Park-Michael Crichton

If you think im a nerd, you can save it, stupid people like you are the reason this world will eventually be a failure.

The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien
Harry Potter (all 5) - J.K. Rowling
Star Wars Jedi Academy Trilogy - Kevin J. Anderson
The Giver - Lois Lowry
The Once And Future King - T.H. White
Romeo & Juliet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, almost every other Shakespeare play - Obviously, William Shakespeare

Tons upon tons more good ones, but these were what I could think of.

anything by Stephen King rocks

and I'm reading the book based on the Punisher, it's pretty good. I just won a prize pack from the local rock station (see the Hot Babe Pic Thread, you'll see why they kick so much ass), got 2 tix to the Punisher a week from tomorrow, a Punisher shot glass, Tshirt, that book, and the soundtrack.

The Sight-forgot author

The Seven Towers- or something like that, many books (7 maybe?), also forgot author...


EDIT: Eragon movie in '05. http://www.randomhouse.com/teens/eragon/news_movie.htm

EDIT2: Philip Pullman is also a good author, he wrote the Golden Compass + 2 others in a trilogy

The harry potter books were excellent.
I'm currently reading The Silmarillion, and it's quite good.
A few good other books.

Exactly what I was going to say. Right now I'm reading Band of Brothers, and I have like 3 Clancy books waiting for me when I'm done. I also have "The Greatest Generation" by Tim Brokhaw about the WWII/Deppression generation.
