    The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, Robert Heinlein. Lord of Light, Roger Zelazny. The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien. An Old Friend of the Family, Fred Saberhagen. Death of a Citizen, Donald Hamilton. Series: The Barrayar series about Miles Vorkosigan by Lois McMaster Bujold. The Dracula series by Fred Saberhagen especially Old Friend... The Dracula Tapes, and Thorn. The Lord of The RIngs by Tolkien. Matt Helm starts with Death of a Citizen. Travis Mcgee. The Hitchhiker's Guide series, Callahan's Bar by Spider Robinson. On TV and Movies: Buffy, The Oneidan Line, Back to the Future, The Star Trek Movies, Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe. The Terminator Series, (after the first one, I had to see how they would write Arnie back into it as a hero) {BTW, I know Harlan Ellison won his lawsuit about it, but if I'd been on the jury, I'd have found for him and awarded him only a copy of Elephants Have Melancholy Eyes, because when I first saw it I thought that Fred Saberhagen's Berserker series was what was being ripped off.} Archie Comics. (for bed time reading) BQ: Actually, I gave up when I realised they were writing it faster than I could read it. Worse, try Spider Robinson's short story, Elephants Have Melancholy Eyes. And, nowadays my eyes hurt enough that I don't read many books, even when I have the time. On the computer I can control the size of the page and print.

    ok-

    1. confessions of georgia nicolson ( angus thongs a full frontal snogging etc )

    2. the truth about forever - amazing book, really, really, really good

    3. z for zachariah, don't read the plot online because it gives away everything, it's not the sort of book i would normally read but i had to at school and it was quite good, post apocalyptic book, about a 15 yr old girl who lives alone in her valley after a bomb devastates the country, set around our time 21st century i think, or 20th dno which lol, and a man arrives in her valley but how can she be sure he's friendly in a world where everything has changed.

    all three book amazing but the best has to be " the truth about forever " read the blurb on amazon, i started getting into the book about the second chapter, i told loads of people about it, they all said they didn't want to read it because they said they would cry, i don't know why because it's not a sad book, then they borrowed it off me and i havn't got it back yet, it's not a sad book, its amazing, following a teenagers life, read the blurb atleast please, its the least you can od after making me type all of this :)

    tell me if you read this when you comment on the best answer, for who ever you choose, just put p.s on the end of it, then i did read the blurb and i did/didn't like it.

    hope i helped.

    Here are my favorites:

    1. Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman (sequel to come out eventually called Eona: The Last Dragoneye)

    2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (sequel’s Catching Fire, which I thought was super-lousy, but The Hunger Games is awesome)

    3. The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

    4. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, and one more book that will most likely be called City of Fallen Angels)

    5. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass, just so you know, it’s really controversial, but I love them)

    Happy reading :)
