    I love the Eragon series, and am currently reading the Ender's Game series. (Already read Ender's Game and going to start Speaker for the Dead.)

    I have enjoyed the Bartimaus trilogy. As well as the Harry potter and series of unfortunate events.

    My favorite book is definitely New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer, by Bill Maher.
    I also like The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama, and Off Camera by Ted Koppel.
    The common threads between the three are obviously politics and social commentary, things I love!

    I think my favourite series of books would have to be the His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman.

    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Unoriginal, I know, but they are good books.

    Closer language analysis study of Shakespeare can discover meanings you might have missed in the plays... But I hated learning Shakespeare too, Hamlet was slightly interesting but everything else practically bored me to death.

    I don't read, I don't even know why I'm here.

    +1 for the Orson Scott Card folks, outstanding stuff - ditto on the Douglas Adams Hitchhiker works.

    I'm a huge fan of Neil Gaimen (Neverwhere, American Gods, Stardust, Good Omens w/ Pratchett).

    Everything from Harlan Ellison from his TV essays to his speculative fiction (can't even list anything he's way too prolific).

    B.E. Elliss, Palahniuk, Alan Moore, all the classic fantasy and SciFi writers like Zelazny (9 Princes), Heinlein (I read Starship Troopers when I was 10), Moorcock, Clarke, etc.

    Philip K. Dick I'd consider the finest Politcal/SciFi writer to date.

    Some one off reading from folks like Gustav Hasford (the amazing 'The Short Timers').

    Dozens of others I'm sure I'm forgetting!
