I'm currently reading "The Hobbit" by J.R.R Tolkien. I'm pretty sure I'll read the LOTR books after ROTK comes out in theatres.

I love the LotR books. I read them for the first time when I was seven, actually, but I've read them once or twice a year now since then. They're great, anybody who hasn't read them yet should definitely check them out.

I want to read all the Tom Clancy books I can find :D . The stories are amazing, same for the descriptions, and he just seem to guess what's gonna be next (like terrorism) 5 years before in his books.

(w00t) All these Tolkien fans! Well, I read LoTR when I was about 10 and the Hobbit and The Silmarillion a bit later, and Tolkien is still my fav. author!

Other amazing fantasy series similar to LoTR:

-DEATH GATE CYCLE, my fav series other than LoTR (1st book of 7: Dragon Wing) by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
-Song of Ice and Fire Series (First book of 4 so far: Game of Thrones) by George RR Martin
- The Sword of Shannara series (first book (of 6) is self titled) by Terry Brooks
-Wheel of Time (First book of 10 so far: Eye of the World) by Robert Jordan
-The Fionavar Tapestry (3 Books starting with 'The Summer Tree') by Guy Gavriel Kay

Fav. Single Fantasy Books:
- Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay (favourite single book, this guy is amazing.)
- A Song for Arbonne By GGK (almost as good, based in Medival France)
- The Lions of Al-Rassan (based in Medival Spain) by GGK
- The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (hilarious!)

If you like LoTR, you'll love these too!

Gathering Blue is a terrible book. But The Giver rocks.

I'm into the unabridged, full, 1496-page Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas.

LOTR - Return of the king
Romeo & Juliet <--- And I don&#39;t have a clue why :blink:

Stupid White men :D XD <--- This is a great book for anyone that&#39;s interested in politics and the whole event over 9/11. Micheal Moore is just awesome.

I am really into the new Patricia Cornwell book at the moment. It&#39;s about Jack The Ripper and is really good. You should get it if you like her writing :rolleyes:

I haven&#39;t had the time. My sister owns most of them, though, so once I get a break where I actually don&#39;t have work to do (Christmas Break, probably) then I&#39;ll try to read books I actually want to, including the Douglas Adams books =)
