For a while now, my favorite books have been the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. I'm also a big fan of Redwall, Lord of the Rings, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Edit: Oh, and I just recently read two more very good books: The Last Lecture, which is a sort of autobiography written a few years ago by a college professor after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer; and The Art of Racing in the Rain, which is one of those "human nature as told by a dog" type books.

I used to love goosebumps when I was a kid. biggrin.gif

I mostly have a collection of various manga, along with Anne Rice's vampire chronicles, some by Stephen King, Marilyn Manson's biography and books that I read for my English lit degree.

If going by sheer quantity, it'd have to be the Star Trek novels I collected in the 1990's. Got more of those than anything else.

If going by re-readability, then it'd have to be the Chronicles Of Narnia and the Inheritance series (the author of the later living ~200km from me). It's rare for me to reread anything, and I've read the Chronicles at least three times, and the Inheritance series (what's published) twice.

Eeeeeeh, Inheritance. I can read those because I'm a fantasy fan, but the sheer number of cliches in them makes me facepalm constantly, and Paolini's pacing needs a lot of work. And also the whole "Hey guys elves are superior in every way and also they are super vegetarians and atheists! I'm not using them as a mouthpiece at all!"

Elves being vegetarian, atheists, and/or superior to humans aren't new concepts to me, so I guess I'm not seeing what you are. In more than one work of fiction have I come across similar elven notions.

That's true, it's just that it's getting old by this point, you know? People are getting tired of seeing the superhuman elves trope again and again. It's really more a matter of relativity than the series being objectively bad or anything.

At the moment I'm reading Inkdeath, the last book in the Inkheart trilogy. I've had the book for a while now, but I've had to read it in little bits because I haven't had the time to read it lately.

same here. I think I got halfway through the book and had to stop for school. I think I'll get back to it and reread it.

Right now I'm reading the Immortal series by Alyson Noel. I get to meet her and get her autograph on June 24 right after the 4th book comes out! biggrin.gif I love meeting authors. She'll be the 3rd New York Times bestselling author and 4th in all that I get to meet
