    Magician - Raymond E. Feist (and the rest of the riftwar saga [​IMG])
    The Redemption of Althalus - David and Leigh Eddings
    Good Omens - Terry Prattchett and Neil Gaiman.
    Those three books are my favourite books of all time, and I must have read all three of them at least 30 times each.

    Like the author's thread, I didn't read a lot of "real" book, so here are the ones I liked :

    - Lord of the ring, The silmarillion, Bilbo, etc. whatever is on Tolkien's middle earth

    - Earth's children (J.M. Auel),
    great series from a kro-magnon (prehistoric) child who lose her tribe after an earthquake and is adopted by another and less advanced tribe.

    Egad I hate it. So far most of the people I met either love it a hell lot or hate it a hell lot.

    I love fantasy stuff so...
    Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden Series. It's the best of the modern fantasy mystery series I have read.

    Any book of Haurki Murakami. But Wind up Bird Chronicles is a especially huge mindfuck.

    Neil Gaiman's Stardust still remains deep in my heart after years.

    A Song of Ice and Fire. . if you haven't read this, you should read it. Now.

    The Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness are great books but not one that I would read again.

    -brave new world
    -all the troubles of the world (short story by isaac asimov)
    -the host (just because the twilight author wrote it, doesn't mean it's not awesome.)

    you should add a poll like thing (manually count the votes for each book) like dice's essentials lists, then this thread could be stickied!

    There's a ton of books I like very very much but won't call them "favourite" because that would be watering the term down a bit.
