2. Belgarth the Sorcerer
3. Ringworld

off the top of my head, here are 3. I've loved  :-* them so much I've read them multiple times.

Bob Smith - Selfish and Perverse
Audrey Niffenegger - The Time Traveler's Wife
Stephen King - The Shining

the memory card in my tablet holds about 9000 books, and I've read about 1/3 of them. Oddly enough, this year I actually read a few books - I mean actually physical paper books. Hardback versions to boot.  8)

What Happened? - Hilary Clinton
Fear - Bob Woodward
The Plot to Hack America - Malcolm Nance
Fire and Fury - Michael Wolfe

But there were fun books too! Read through all of charlaine harris recently (sookie stackhouse/True Blood, Midnight Texas). I also have several hundred Star Trek books (my inheritance from my 2nd late partner), and I can rip through any of them in just a couple of hours, enjoying the hell out of them. :)

I've been reading a collection from the author "Michael Thomas Ford".  I have 7 of his books and have one left to read.

After I finish them I need to find something new to read.  I also just bought an iPad so now I can do the electronic books.  I'm looking forwarding to reading more.  It's one of those times that I can escape and relax.

I easily lose myself in good sci-fi by Clarke.  Specifically, the "2001" series and "Rama" series.

True Blood follows the books up through #3, then the show goes off the rails. There's nearly a dozen books in the series.

the book for time traveler's wife, goes a lot deeper into the feelings of Henry and Claire (of course it does - it's a book) and I thought the sad part was a lot sadder (of course, I still cry at the movie . .  but whatever. LOL) I always read the book if I see the movie, and try to see the movie if I read the book. ;)

"Rama" series.
why is "Rendezvous with Rama" not a movie?!? "Childhood's End" is really good too.

I also like all the stuff written by Asimov (esp the Foundation series). Fun fact (well not so fun): Asimov passed away in 92 from AIDS. Oh, and any of the Dune series (Frank Herbert, et al)
