You are so right Miss Sixty.  Book wise the Hobbit was so much easier to read than LOTR. 

Other favorite book.  Still life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins or also by him Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates. 

Tom Robbins rocks

Well, technically LOTR, but since almost everyone will include this, I'll say "A Prayer For Owen Meany" by John Irving...

It features one of the most eccentric characters in all literature, the titular Owen - an extremely small-statured child, with pale otherworldly looks, an indescribable voice that is represented by using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS for his dialogue, and who thinks he is an agent of God!

Other faves are "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee.

where im calling from by raymond carver

I'm reading a book of his short stories at the moment, 'Cathedral'.  Also read a good set called 'naked' by David Sedaris recently. But the best short story collection I ever read was 'Skin' by Roald Dahl.  Great stuff.

My personal favorite, if anyone has ever heard of it, is the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. He is a fantastic author!

The Sound and the Fury, W. Faulkner
Crime and Punishment, Dostoievsky
If a traveler in a witer night..., Italo Calvino
Invisible cities, Italo Calvino
Fictions, Jorge Luís Borges (collection of tales)
The Trilogy of the city of k, Agota Kristof
The Waves, Virginia Woolf
The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
Aparição, Vergílio Ferreira
The Process, Kafka
The Man Without Qualities, Robert Musil

My favorite books I read so far are:

Twilight saga
Geek High & Geek Abroad

My favorite book(s) out of the Twilight saga was the first one and the last one. I really did not like second one much, because there was more descritions than the actual talking of characters, if you know what I mean.
The third one was nice.

Now just have to read Harry Potter.... I was to young to read the first one. lol.
