I know, I haven't made a thread in a while, but I doubt anyone really minds.  Anyway, I was just wondering what your favorite books were.  I think TEM made a topic like this back when he was called Master_Luigi, but I can't remember and don't want to go search for it.  Here are a few of my favorite books, I'll write small descriptions and why I like them later:

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Favorites Now:
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- The Harry Potter series
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (much better than Tom Sawyer, Markio. Read it if you haven't already)
- His Dark Materials Trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass) <-- Last one was the only book to make me cry. Of course, it helps to read the first two.
- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
- Through the Looking Glass (This and the previous one are my two all-time favorites)

Favorites When I was Younger:
- Goosebumps series
- Rohald Dahl's books (Especially Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Charlie and the Great-Glass Elevator)
- The Phantom Tollbooth

I'm looking forward to reading these X-mas gifts:
- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
- Eragon

-The Power That Preserves

The Harry Potter series, definitely.
Now that you mention it, Chup, the Thrawn books where awesome, almost better than the original movie trilogy.
The first Hitchhiker's book was cool, after that the trilogy got kind of boring.
As for serious "literature," I liked 1984 (though it was incredibly depressing) and Slaughterhouse Five.
Oh, and I simply LOVED Super Luigi.  All five volumes.

Timeline is a good book, but the movie sucked.
