So I was bored, with nothing to do, and then I realized... OUR TOWN HAS A LIBRARY :O
Recommend some good books.
I'd prefer if you stay away from fantasy books like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings though. I'm not really into those :\
Even though I've never read them >_>
I loved that book so much!
The sig that I'm wearin? Awesomely made by Skaren!
Also, I like annoying Americans by calling English football "real football" and American football "rugby".-Lost-Chances
I can't read normal books, I have too low of an attention span.
I do fine with comics, though.
JOIN THE US MILITARY NOW!!!!! Cause with WWIII cooking up, at least you'll get the job you want!
P.S. SHIT I LOST THE GAME!!!

Right, I should mention I'm looking for "real" books, just so people know what I'm talking about.
Red badge of courage
Diary of Adrien Mole
Most enjoyment I have gained from books has come from those three.

no fantasy? I don't know then.
Well, no it can be fantasy. I just don't want crazy fucked up fantasies, unless it involves bitches riding hardcore unicorns of doom saving the planet or some shit.
I'll do fantasy, it just depends.
The Alchemist. Although it's a better read in Spanish, the English version is still very good. Also, don't read the Wikipedia article on it. It ruins the ending, and only tells about the beginning. I'm glad I've already read the book, otherwise I'd be pissed.
But seriously, this is one of my favorite books. Although it's relatively short, you should most definitely read it. Oh, and it's by Paulo Coelho by the way.
God my library sucks fucking ass.
Out of all the books recommended, only one is available(watership down.)
*sigh* keep going.
Catch-22, 1984, anything by Terry Pratchett, and anything by Arthur C. Clarke (his earlier novels and short stories from the '50s and '60s are the best).
I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
You don't like fantasy? How about Sci-fi or something? I read a lot of books based off of videogames so here's some of my favorites:
Resident Evil series (books 0-6) by: S.D. Perry
Halo series (many different authors, many different books)
Metal Gear Solid the novel by Raymond Benson
Call of the Wild
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
Give a Boy a Gun (rather disturbing/scary)
A Christmas Carol
Dewey: The Library Cat (such a cute story)
Any of the works of Michael Crichton. I especially enjoyed Sphere.
On the for real tip, please read over your posts for spelling, grammar, and stupidity mistakes.
I LOVE Megadeth and Rush.
Dan Pendleton's The Executioner series. Publishes a book almost every month, of at least 200 pages.
XBL Gamertag: TrainerMarcus
Cat's Cradle, American Psycho, Wasp Factory, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas and Day Of The Triffids and 1984 off the top of my head. Maybe Trainspotting as well but if you're unfamiliar about the Scottish accent then you'll find reading it almost impossible due the phonetic spelling.
Tideland, if it's there.
It's a bizarre story of a little girl living in an abandoned house, in the middle of nowhere. She lives with her dad's corpse, who she thinks is still alive, and her make-believe doll heads. It was such a unique and well-written book that I read most of it within a day.

I saw that cartoon not too long ago...even that was pretty good.
I recommend anything and everything by Douglas Adams.
Namely, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.

I thought a move of that was supposed to come out around this time of the year. I've been waiting for it for a while.
You should've grabbed his/done a cock joke barrel/rick roll.
All credit for my sig goes to Thimbles! YAY :D

I was recently exploring Mystery/Crime Fiction and I became rather fond of Dashiell Hammett and Jim Thompson.
Dashiell Hammett wrote a fair amount of novels like most of the early American crime novelists, look out for Red Harvest, The Maltese Falcon, And The Thin Man.
Jim Thompson has a large number of novels under his belt, his novels are more gritty and dark, watch out for The Killer Inside Me, Savage Night, Pop. 1280, The Grifters, and The Getaway.
Also look out for Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep, he's another of the classic crime novelists
Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. It's my favorite book, and it's a classic by Mark Twain. It's a great book if you can understand it, read about 40 pages before you give up. It starts getting good there.
Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings
there pretty good

John Irving (my favorite)
You should read "The world according to garp", "A prayer for Owen Meany" or Hotel New Hampshire.
He writes very comic biographies of his character, using irony and humor to buff up sad situations. It's really really good.
