    If there's already been a thread on this (I would be surprised if there wasn't), it's long gone. Figure I might bump the issue.

    Mine are A Little Piece of Ground, as well as anything by Ken Follett.

    Herbert, Tolkein, Catch 22, Number 9 Dream, Feersum Endjinn, Excession, Against a Dark Background, Night's Dawn Trilogy, Anything by Kundera (especially Immortality), His Dark Materials series (100 times better than Harry Potter), Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Henderson The Rain King, and strangely The Nichomachean Ethics is something I still like flicking through once in a awhile.
