Well I am always looking for something new to read so post your 3 fave books here. Hopefully this will give other people some things to look for next time they are in the library/book store.

1. The Tale Of Ice & Fire series - George RR Martin (Definatly my fave book series, had to put it in as one book otherwise my list would just be the three titles.)

2. Fight Club - Chuck Palahniuk (Read it because of the movie and it is far better then I could have hoped.)

3. Needful Things - Steven King (Had to include a Steven King book in my list and while it was near impossable to choose between Needful Things, The Shining, Dreamcatcher & Insomnia I decided to go with this one.)

Well, if your looking for buyers guide, i'll leave out the LOTR, everyones heard of it.

1. 1984 G. Orwell, interesting political satire regarding totalitaianism, and easy to read. Not to everyones interest but it still serves as a warning to the future

2. some Tom clancy, just for an easy read novel.

3. The Godfather, Mario Puzo

wow, its hard to pick just three, i tried to pick some of varying type as well, not just the same genre, also i was sticking to fiction here.

1. Frank Herbert's Dune series and any other books from him.

2. J.R.R. Tolkien: Silmarillion, if you haven't read it yet.

3. Tom Clancy also has good books.

1. Song of Ice and Fire(GRR Martin) or The Sword of Truth(T Goodkind)
2. *look above*
3. As slim as my memory of the series is, I'd say Dune, F Herbert.
4. And 1984 is a definite pick!

That'd be because I don't know, I'd say :\ A Song of Ice and Fire's up there somewhere 'tleast. Some Tolkien stuff too, I guess. And, umh, some other book too, I suppose :\
