The 10 best books? Damn it! You relize how hard this is?

1. Timeline. By Micheal Critchieon.- Best book eva! Lots of science and action!

2. Anasai's Boys. By Niel Gaimen.- Funniest book eva! Great plot and characters that have depth.

3. Airframe. By Micheal Crithieon. -Plenty of drama and it keeps you guessing till the end.

4. Jurrasic Park. By M.C.- Scary in it's implications. This one has actually given me nightmares. My neighbourhood gets over run by dinos. Raptors..... :o

5. NANO. By Jonathan Marrow. A great sci-fi book about nanobots. Nanobots should arrive whithin the next 5 years. Can humans handle it?

6. Prey. By M.C. Another fiction about nanobots. It tells you about nanobots that adapt and fight back against their limits.

More later!
The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

The Warlord of Mars, and the rest of the Martian Tales (except for the 11th book)-Edgar Rice Burroughs
The Swiss Family Robinson
Starship Troopers, Job: A Comedy of Justice, A Tunnel in the Sky, etc.-Robert A. Heinlein
The Zombie Survival Guide, World War Z-Max Brooks
The Watchmen-Alan Moore
H2G2 and those books-Douglas Adams
Ender's Game-Orson Scott Card
Some fo the Xanth books by Piers Anthony (and some of his other books too)
Outlander, and following books - Diana Gabaldon (seriously, am I the only guy who reads these?)

Any H.G. wells and Jules Verne without question
That's all for now, I'll be back to post more!

I've read some of The War Starts Tomorow.

Great series. I read up to the third one. Then a Libary Worker read the first two and decided they were 'unsuitable'.

Pffff. If I can read a book where a guy gets his stomach slashed open and his intestines fall into his hands and then he gets devoured when I was 8, damned if The War starts Tomorow ain't suitable for me now.

I'm pretty sure 'Books' is the smallest of all the sub-forums.

Basically anything in Ubergeekdom is slooooow.

Books got a little boost with Harry Potter, likewise movies with the fifth.
