A stupid name but I was at a loss for names so...
Anyway I made this thread because I thought that we could discuss our favorite books and stuff...
I mean why not? Who doesn't like books I'm sure some of you don't but I hope that at least more than half of you do.
Me? I love books.
I guess I can keep a log of favorite books here as well with a small blurb about the books so if someone is looking for a good read they can find one here.

Favorite Books:

The Adder: The Kings Shadow, By: Elizabeth Alder
A welsh boy is sold as a servant to a English lady by his uncle. The boy eventually becomes Harold Godwinsons page. About Norman invasion of England and before.


CrystalCrown: Nineteen Eighty-Four, By George Orwell

[c=green]Cherub Aro[/c=green]:The Outsiders, By S.E. Hinton.
Very good book about two types of people and the hardships they must face. Very exciting at times

Yes he did, just a few years before he wrote 1984.

but I am reading the good Anne McCaffery Si Fis, good for the soul (like green tea *cymbals*). 'All the Weyrs of Pern' is a favorite.

For non-fiction, I read pretty much any History book. However I loved The Last Hundred Days by John Toland, describing the last 3 months+ of the Third Reich. I read it 3 times.

I hardly read fiction, but I enjoyed HG Wells' The Invisible Man as well as this great book of historical fiction called Taiko, by the late Eiji Hosokawa. Animal Farm wasn't bad either, but my favourites must be either of the former two.

I like reading children books and historical fact books. There was a children fiction book on Roman Legions that I liked, it was long. About a quarter of LoTR book. Talking of LoTR, it's an excellent trilogy.

That book is awesome ('though quite bizzare).

LOL!!! I love that book!
I'm torn between the LoTR trilogy (read 'em 15 or so times) and every Discworld novel I've ever read.

I would really love to read that book, and currently own a copy of it, but I'm really too stupid to udnerstand it... =/ I did read a few chapters, but came off learning nothing from the book; which wasn't very fun to read in the first place, due to its extreme complexity. It has way too many complicated mathematical equations, my school has basically the worst math program that you could find anywhere.
