Guess even I can give my favorites genre wise. But my fav genre is science fiction. And the favorites in that genre are

Frank Herbert's Dune series

Isaac Asimov's Foundation Series.

In crime, Sherlock Holmes is my favorite.

In children's genre, I like Enid Blyton - everything she has written, Harry Potter and Willard Price.

My all time favorite is Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach, it's an amazingly simple read that inspires us to spread our wings and fly... up, above, beyond and within. Here's a quote -

Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.

Loved the quote. But would like to know your interpretation of "All they show is limitation "  and " Find out what you already know"  Innocent

Thats a really great quote Arti..

Jonathan Livingston Seagull is good.. From the classics i kinda liked Wuthering Heights... Isaac Asimov is good in all his books.. and lotsa others

but my fav would be Hitchhikers' series.. insanely funny..

@abhi.. Remember that sprite ad - Dikhawe pe mat jao, apni akal lagao.. Can say it's somewhat on those lines. It's all about breaking the barriers and shackles that we tend to keep our minds in and instead try to think free. :)

Am now reading Doris Lessing's 'The Golden Note Book', winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2007. Lessing captures the heady mix of the early Sixties.
