Favorite books?

I'll start. :P

I generally tend to read a little of everything, though I stay centered around science fiction, and hard science fiction at that.
  • Stephen Baxter - Manifold trilogy, Vacuum Diagrams, Titan, Ring
  • Arthur C. Clarke - The Rama series
  • Isaac Asimov - The Foundation series
  • Robert J. Sawyer - Calculating God, Factoring Humanity
I am not really into books but I've read those

- Christopher Paolini - Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr xD
I have also read Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings
Yay, the Inheritance Cycle :)

I have a lot of favourite books, generally read mostly scifi and fantasy.

A few favourites I would DEFINITELY recommend if you haven't read:
-Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson
-The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy

and of course, the Survival Guide :)
I tend to have favourite authors, so here they are:

- Terry Pratchett
-Agatha Cristie


-Harry Potter
-The Dark Tower
-Wheel of Time
This reminded me that I haven't read a decent book in years, I mostly read magazines and nothing more lol.

I guess I loved time machine when I was still little lol.

I'm ashamed to admit there's not much I have read in the grand scheme of things. I do like Neil Gaiman's books though.

I want to read some good sci-fi books.

Any recommendations?

I highly recommend Baxter above. Especially Vacuum Diagrams, which is actually a collection of short stories that take place during the Xeelee sequence. Or the Manifold Trilogy (Manifold Space, Time and Origin). Space and Time were great. Origin was just okay IMHO though.
Here are my favourite books! :D

  • J.R.R. Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings
  • Terry Brooks - The Elfstones of Shannara
  • R.A. Salvatore - Sojourn
  • Licia Troisi - Cronache del Mondo Emerso (Chronicles of the Emerged World)
  • Isaac Asimov - I, Robot
  • Isaac Asimov - Foundation

David Brins Uplift Universe Novels.

Short intro from Wikipedia, because it says everything way better as i can :D

In the Uplift universe an intergalactic civilization called the Five Galaxies, comprising a multitude of sentient races, has existed for billions of years. This civilization is perpetuated by the act of Uplift, in which a "patron" species genetically modifies a non-sapient "client" species until it is sapient. The client species is typically indentured to its patron species for 100,000 years. Patron status can be lost due to extermination, or gross crimes against the galactic civilization.

It is generally accepted in this universe that the process of Uplift was initiated at least one billion years ago by a species known only as the Progenitors. Humanity is therefore a rare anomaly – a species with no apparent patron race.

This has made most other races to horrific enemies of humanity because they think even the thaught of not having a patron race is herecy.
I need to start reading again Hahaha! I read all the lord of the rings, harry potter, and one book that I really liked was the book that the movie Shooter was bassed off of.
My favourite books/series:

- The Lord of the Rings, by Tolkien
- A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin (the only thing that's truly rivaled LOTR for me)
- Foundation Series, by Isaac Asimov
- Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling, duh
- The Horus Heresy, by various Warhammer 40K authors
