Books Are Entertainment, Too!

Books? These are the things without pictures, right?^^
Hehe, seriously, I really enjoy reading. Like the big masses I enjoy reading these HP books, although I've only read 1-4.

But my favourite books, hm..Well, although being very old I still really love "Dracula", the original by Bram Stoker as I love the writing style. I also really like the "Mardock" trilogy by the japanese author "To Ubukata", one of the few Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk books I like.
My newest addition, bought it three or four days ago, is "Night Watch" (Nochnoi Dozor) by russian author Sergei Lukyanenko. I've not seen the movie, everyone told me it is very strange and boring, but as far as I read the book, I'm at chapter five now, I really like it and it sure has potential to be another one of my favourites along with Dracula and Mardock.

That's all for now, I'm open for any suggestions as soon as I've finished Night Watch^^

Greetings,

Woahhh! There ARE still people who read! XD

Hmm... I've read many books I've found to love, so it really is a hard choice to make... maybe right now, I would have to say Inkheart. It wasn't a hard read, but it was a good read. =D Never got to read the sequel yet... I guess runner up would have to go to another series I read: The Stone of Light Series by Christian Jacq. Twas a historical fiction taking place in egyptian times. My fave part was the two main antagonists, cause they were good at what they did and knew how to cover their tracks. Hee... I love historical fiction and fantasy~! n.n

My favorite's "Fire Bringer." It's an epic story of a deer prophesized to rise up and, after many trials, kill the corrupt herd leader. It's full of action and adventure, as deer "armies" actually fight each other, and perhaps the best part of it all is that it's told in the perspective of the deer. I loved it, and I highly recommend it. :D

"The Wheel of Time" series by the late Robert Jordan. Sadly, he died before he could complete the 12th and final book.

On book three of four in the Rama series. I loved the first one, but the rest seem to focus more on petty character things than the big fucking space machines. Still a good story though.

Sooooo many books . . . if I limit myself to fiction of furry interest:

"Ratha's Creature" and the sequels by Clare Bell
Intelligent saber-toothed cats in an alternate Miocene. In the first book, Ratha is outcast from her tribe when she tries to tame fire, with terrible repurcussions for all. Some of the smartest, most thrilling storytelling I've ever read.

The Alien Chronicles series by Deborah Christian
Ampris, born a slave in a crumbling empire, rouses her fellow slaves to rebel. All the alien races are clearly based on animals (Ampris is leonine, other races are reptilian, avian, resemble coyotes, lemurs, octopi, etc).

"Jennie" by Douglas Preston
Nature vs nurture: if a chimpanzee were raised like a human child, what sort of creature would she become? Based on real research and incredibly moving.

"The Color of Neanderthal Eyes" by James Tiptree, JR
A man ignores first contact protocol when he falls in love with a mermaid-like alien and her peaceful, edenic society . . . and when she becomes pregnant with his hybrid children, discovers the hard way that just because something looks like a human, it doesn't function like one.

"At Winter's End" and the sequel, "The New Springtime" by Robert Silverberg
700,000 years after humans and other advanced races are sent to extinction by comets raining down on the earth, a small tribe of humanoid monkeys emerges from their underground shelters, fully convinced from ancient texts that they are 'human' and destined to be the new masters of the greatly changed world. Obviously, a lot has happened in that time and they're in for some nasty surprises.

"The Crimson Bears" and "A HUndred Doors" by Tom La Farge
Actually one book in two volumes. In a world when just about every species is sentient, two young bears (the ruling species) set out to explore their country. On the way they pick up an annying pet, a sort of wool-bearing, nonsentient lizard, and arrive at their uncle's home in Bargeton to discover a city on the edge of war being invaded by mysterious Crimson Bears. Nothing is what it seems, and the books are both literary and deep and imaginative and exciting, not to mention being written in a dead-on perfect Victorian style.

My favorite book (that I've read so far) is probably "Book the Thirteenth: The End" by Lemony Snicket, some of my other favorites are "The Wind in the Willows", The other books in the series of unfortunate events, The Invisible Man, The Spiderwhick Chronicles (sp?), and Goosebumps

I can't really tell you my what my favorite books are, but I can tell you James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. I just love his style of writing. IMO, his books are like crack: once you start reading, you're addicted until you finish. Probably not the best comparison, but meh. Whatever. Some of my other favorite writers are Jane Lindskold, Brian Jacques, Sue Henry and a few others.

Favorite is the Dune books. The ones written by Frank Herbert, and not his son though. Especially God Emperor, just cause it has my fav line in the entire series. After the Dunes my fav would be 1984.

Thank you so much! I knew someone else had read it back then XD

I actually have a long list of books I love, but I tried to stop reading novels because I read so much I can't even have a place to sleep as my bed is covered in books, instructional, manga etc. D:

No problem.
Sleep is for the weak . . . I plan to end my life like the Collyer brothers, dying in a house packed solid with paperback books.

Haha it's not so much how much or well I sleep, it's just a bit disconcerting when you wake up with a book stuck to your @$$.
