What are your all-time favorite books? Can be from any genre. The only thing is, I don't want answers like "The Bible, it's the greatest story ever told," or, "The Qur'an." Let's keep out religious texts.
Some of mine include:
The Hobbit/ The Lord of the Rings Series (Tolkein)
Cat's Cradle, Breakfast of Champions, Slaughterhouse-Five (Vonnegut)
DaVinci Code, Angels and Demons, Digital Fortress, Deception Point (Dan Brown, and say what you will about the historical inaccuracies in DaVinci and Angels; I find them intriguing as works of fiction with a basis in history)
Catcher in the Rye (Salinger)
Lord of the Flies (Golding)
To Kill a Mockingbird (Lee)
and, as much as it makes me feel like a little kid, the Harry Potter series (Rowling) and the Chronicles of Narnia (Lewis)

I really like Christopher Brookmyre's books, my favourite is A Tale Etched In Blood and Hard Black Pencil.
I also love Labyrinth and Sepulchre by Kate Mosse, and The Jeremy Clarkson books always put a smile on my face. The Harry Potter set is classic too, and being a Dexter fan, I can't help but love the books Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Deeply Devoted Dexter.

I am a die hard Science Fiction and Fantasy Fan The book that started this trend was "The Hobbit", the precursor to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy by JRR Tolkien. I would say that "Foundation" by Issac Assimov is up there as favorite Sci-Fi novel. I read for enjoyment and relaxation, so after exhausting most Sci-Fi, I now read a lot of Westerns. In that Genre you cannot beat "The Sacketts" or anything else by Louis Lamour. But if I had to pick one book as my favorite it would be "The Firm" by John Grisham.
