Ok, I know you guys at least like some literature.
Lets get some discussion up in here.

Idk why, but it just felt awesome to read this book.

This book made me cry. Seriously, it was sooo sad (yes Wil, sadder than the end of RDR)
3. The Harry potter series (nuff said)
4. Calvin & Hobbes
How could you not like Calvin & Hobbes?
5. Uncle John's bathroom reader
This is just full of interesting... Well... Stuff.
6. To kill a mockingbird
Just great writing there.
7. A midsummers night dream
Cmon. Shakespeare. Cmon.

==Lyra Belaqua Silvertoungue Books==
=The golden compass trilogy=
-Northern Lights: great book to read, but confusing at times. but it's confusing for a reason. [85%]
-The Subtle Knife: it goes on, hings are starting to clear up, but it gets weirder, time to visit the world of the dead. [94%]
-The Amber Spyglass: Unexpected havoc, everything goes wrong for a reason, love, hate and dispair all in one book depicting one last epic battle, but certainly not the end. [97%]

=Short Stories of the World of the Golden Compass=
-Lyra's Oxford: 4 years later, a prelude to the Big Book of dust (2013) [74%]
-Once upon a time in the north: A story about the youth of our favorite texan aeronaut, lee scoresby. deserves it's own book by all rights. [91%]

==Inheritance==
Eragon: Compelling book on finding one's true identity, and also saving the world, nothing new, maybe, but played in a middle-earth-esque world [70%]
Eldest: The boy and his dragon continue their journey through known and unknown territory, the story start to unfold. [86%]
Brisingr: A book that just pulls the skirt on a LOTR book, and that's an achievement! action scenes are depicted wonderfully here.



I'll add up this list maybe... dunno, anyway the remaining books are those of discworld, and that's like 30+ books, so.... yeah.

Not really into books but I had to read a lot for Honors English.
I pretty much only read books when I have to but when I start reading, I get hooked.

Lets see...

Anything Stephen King wrote(haha), especially The Eyes of The Dragon
Tale of Two Cities(and anything from Charles Dickens)
The Odyssey
Merchant of Venice
Madame Bovary(shut up, it's interesting)
The DaVinci Code
The Road
All the Harry Potter stuff

There are more but those were the interesting ones that I remembered.

The Deltora Quest Series
Slaughterhouse-Five
the Element (even though I didn't finish it)

Book names don't seem to be coming to me tonight. Those are the important ones though.

Blood just countered Michael's unrelated topic with an epic topic's topic revival technique, but joey reversed his reversal with a reverse epic unrelated topic's topic counter countering Bloods epic topic's topic revival but also foiled Michael's original unrelated topic at the same time.

Wow.
