I'm not much of a reader but I'd have to go with BE READY WHEN THE SH*T GOES DOWN: A Survival Guide To The Apocalypse by forrest griffin its a funny yet practical survival guide forrest is a pro mma fighter that has an amazing sense of humour
My favorite book is "Interview With a Vampire" by Anne Rice. She is my favorite author, for vampire fiction as well as her other awesome volumes like "The Witching Hour" and "Feast of All Saints"
Her writing changed my life because instead of staying a prissy "tween", I became a goth. I kept my "double life" a secret until I got out on my own after high school and played in the goth world for the next 15 years. It still makes me smile when I think of how some of those adventures were the best times of my life. And today, I love it that Anne Rice is active on Twitter and interacts with her fans.
I've got one that not many people have heard of, but it comes in sort of along the lines of Ayn Rand's libertarian works... It's called 'Unintended consequences' by John Ross; a novel that looks at history from a very particular perspective and follows it to a rather startling conclusion. Don't try to buy it from Amazon; their prices for it are outrageous. You can usually find it at gun shows, though, and it's well worth the 30.00 price. Don't look for it at libraries, though.... they won't carry it, as it's very unfriendly/embarrasing to government types.
Id have to say i have 3 Flight of eagles by Jack Higgins
Air Battle force
By Dan Brown
and Close Combat
By W.E.B. Lewis

Let me know what u think
Water for Elephants - excellent! Too much to say about this one so I won't even begin. Check it out at Barnes & Noble. "All That Matters" by Jan Goldstein a quick read with an unexpected lesson of hope in every day. "The 13th Tale" by Diane Setterfield. Reclusive serial author now wishes her bizarre story to be told. Give em a try and let me know what you think.
I love the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik; everything I've read by Guy Gavriel Kay; Lamb by Christopher Moore; The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley; The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien; Dune by Frank Herbert; Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by CS Forester; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by CS Lewis...
Oh, and comic books.
I'm a fan of a lot of different genres. Anything that captures my imagination is fair game.
funandfriendly write: I LOVE the "In Death" series!!! However I think the earlier books were the best in the series. Could it be the sexual tension you can cut like a knife?? :) Could be!!! Great call! I will look into the other series you are talking about... Against the wall... sounds fun.
The J.D. Robb ones? Love those!! I absolutely love LOVE "Kushiel's" series by Jaqueline Cary and the Meredith Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton. Hmm...I could go on and on!
My all time fav is The Color Purple. I love Ms Celie. I'm a big fan of historical romances by Beverly Jenkins. She really knows how to tell a heated story. I'm also a huge fan of J. California Cooper all of her short stories, especially Wild Stars Seeking for Midnight Sun. And I love Sharon Ewell Foster, Christian Fiction Writer.
I'm reading all the of "In Death" books by J D Robb.. fabulous!! Takes place a few years in the future so while you're reading you're nodding your head thinking "oh ya.. can't wait for that!".. fast paced, sexy.. excellent. I wish they'd make movies based on this series and I'd pick Patrick Dempsey to play Roarke and Kelly Carlson (from Nip/Tuck) to play Eve. (yes I spend faaaar too much time in my own head)
All the "Outlander" series are outstanding too.. I have to read the last one still but I wouldn't kick Jamie outta my bed for eating crackers! Is it the kilt? The accent? The hot sex up against the wall? I say yes to all 3!
