The Harry Potter series... Although I didn't enjoy the last few books as much as the first few.

Magician - Raymond E. Feist (and the rest of the riftwar saga

)
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.

If you read any book from this decade, make it Life of Pi.
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.
