Other than The Stand I forgot to add:

Desperation(King)
Phantoms(Koontz)
Seasons of Passsage(Pyke)
The Last Vampire Series(Pyke)
Also I used to love reading the Fear Street(Stine) books when I was a teen.

Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella, The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty, and Les MisÚrables by Victor Hugo are my favorite books.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Vonnegut. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I guess I'll go with Slaughterhouse -Five

I used to hate reading. But thanks for my 5th period Graphic Arts Tech class, I get a huge opening in my day. Took me awhile to get to start reading, but I started off with A Clockwork Orange, which I totally dug. Then I read Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk. This book is awesome, go read it if you haven't. Those are my favs out of the few I have read.

It's impossible for me to pick my favorite novel, but my favorite non-fiction book is Carl Sagan's "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark."

Okay, my favorite book isn't a book; it's my set of Twilight Zone Magazines, a publication that ran from 1981 - 1989. A decade's worth, but still not enough. There's probably no work of fiction I return to more often than these magazines, and no book that I think I cherish more. The issues that T.E.D. Klein edited were the best. It's where I first discovered Joe R. Lansdale, and Ramsey Campbell, and Arthur Machen, and even Stephen King.

OK, my #1 is most definitely James Joyce's ULYSSES. You can read it over and over again and always discover something new and beautiful in it. And that simple matter of fact that it's the most difficult book I've ever read makes it even more intriguing. Reading ULYSSES is an adventure.

some more favorites:
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Der Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse
The Human Stain by Philip Roth
American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? by Raymond Carver
On the Road by Jack Kerouac
Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain

I'd like to add High Fidelity by Nick Hornby to my list. This was such a well written and wonderful book, the movie was good too but doesn't compare to the book.

Ditto.

Although for me Jurassic Park gets at least a runner up mention.

I can't believe no one has said anything on Raymond E. Feist. His fist novel Magician is unreal. So it gets my vote.

What I like to call the "Serge A. Storms" series by Tim Dorsey:
Florida Roadkill
Hammerhead Ranch Motel
Orange Crush
Triggerfish Twist


All four of those are amazing reads, I reccommend them to anyone if you want a wild and crazy ride through Florida life.

Always tough to limit this to less than 10, but I'll say Koko by Peter Straub - closely followed by The Bridge by Iain Banks.

Rock Solid by Bob Barchiesei and Frank Bose. A book i picked up at Barnes and Noble a handful of years ago with no prior knowledge about the story. It's about the story of two cops who brought down Druglord Alejandro Lopez.
