I have seen a good many threads in this get a life section about a great many topics ranging from TV to movies to comics and many other subjects, but have yet to find one about books. I simply figured that we could delve into a discourse about our own reading tastes, critique each other, and offer suggestions for future reading.
On that note, I shall start, and attempt to list off the books I have read for pleasure in the last few years. I will also sort these books by author or category. Note that discussions of textbooks and journals are welcome also.
The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarilion, The Hobbit, The books of Lost Tales (I and II), The Unfinished Tales, The lay of Beleriand, and The Lost Road
The Dark Tower series(7 books total), Bag of Bones, The Green Mile, Hearts in Atlantis, The Tommyknockers, From a Buick 8, The Talisman, Black House, and It.
State of Fear and Jurassic Park
The Chronicles of Narnia
Red Rabbit, and a few of the Net Force series novels (it has been a while since I read these, and their names escape me).
Necroscope Invaders, Defilers, Avengers, Blood Brothers, The last Airie, Blood Wars, The Lost Years(I and II), and the first few novels in the original Necroscope series (it has been a while and I am likely going to need to re-read these).
Assorted Extended Universe Star Wars novels:
Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, the Last Command, (these last three are known as the Thrawn Trilogy), Specter of the Past, Vision of the Future (the Thrawn Duology), and the Dark Nest Trilogy (I am currently half way through the second book).
Ancient Tales and Legends:
Beowulf, Le Morte Darthur
Ok, there it is, and I believe that my status as a complete geek and bookworm has now been cemented. So, what do you like to read, when time permits?
