The Silmarillion is the best book ever.
Or anything by Anne Rice and Tolkien.

I've just discovered a fantastic italian writer  : Alessandro Baricco.
Do you know him?
He wrote wondefoul books like "Novecento" (*_*) (A screen version of "Novecento", entitled "La leggenda del pianista sul oceano" *The Legend of 1900, in english*, was made by Giuseppe Tornatore) and Seta *in english "Silk"*
Have you ever read one of his books?

I love the books from JK Rowling (HARRY POTTER!) and The Lord Of The Rings trilogy by Tolkien.
The books from Dan Brown are awesome too (The Da Vinci Code, angels and demons, ...)

I love the Phillip Pullman series, LOTR and The Hobbit, The Catcher in the Rye, Evil Genius, the Harry Potter series and I really love the 'Barry Trotter' series which is a parody of Harry Potter!

If I was doing a list rather than choosing just one then I'd go for;
'Tipping the Velvet' by Sarah Waters
'Oranges are not the only fruit' by Jeanette Winterson
'Jane Eyre' By Charlotte Bronte
'Orlando' by Virgina Woolf
'Jude the Obscure' by Thomas Hardy.
Plus everything by James Baldwin which I already mentioned in my previous post.

I really like a book named "Thoughts". It's a collection of poetry and essays, and it's brilliant. It was written by TLC member Tionne Watkins and it really makes you think about life in general and what you can do to become a better person.

I don't really have one favourite book. I know a lot of great books.

I'm a fan of Astor Berkhof but he's Belgian so most of you won't know him.

I also love to read books by Jane Austen (especially you could have guessed it Pride and Prejudice ).

Of course I cant forget Lord of the Rings.

I also like books by Virginia Woolf although they're pretty hard to understand.

And there is much more which I can't recall right now...

I don't read that many books, but Talking To Adam by Sarah Ell is really good. I've read it twice so I don't think I'll read it again.

I like to read very much. But I don't have any time for reading at the present moment though. Though I am trying to re-read "The Lord of the Rings" now. Also I like "The Parfumer" by Suskind and Russian literature: Pushkin, Dostoevsky...

You don't read "too much". Reading is always pleasure. I'd like to read as much as you do, really. I think I'm even a litttle bit envious, in a good way (forgive me my bad English, it's not my native language, so... sorry. )))
