Nigella Lawson: How To Eat

Does that count?

Also: Everything (A Book About Manic Street Preachers): Simon Price - yes,
that's the whole title including what's in the brackets.

Artemis Fowl: Eoin Colfer - a book that unfortunately got passed over in the
total rubbishness of the Harry Potty hype.

Hey Charlie.

What's the book about Manic Street Preachers?

I've always thought that it would be an interesting topic for a documentary
or a segment on NPRs This American Life, if it is what I think it is.

Tell me, tell me! I might have to go get it!

It's called "Everything (A book about Manic Street Preachers)",
unsurprisingly, a book about the band "The Manic Street Preachers". What's

Dang! I thought it was actually about street preachers. There was one when
I was at college at Indiana University and it really fascinated me. Not
that I ever really even heard what he said as I walked past but I always
wondered if they ever effected anyone.

Any way, This American Life is a show on National Public Radio that is kind
of quirky and does spotlights on snippets of american lives. I did look up
the book and it looks like they'd be an interesting topic there too.
They've done spots on They Might Be Giants.

If you don't get NPR you can also hear This American Life at their website
(http://www.thislife.org/) on RealPlayer or Audible.com. (I'm not affiliate
with any of those).

- "My Friend Flicka", "Thunderhead" and "Green Grass of

- "Mandarin Orange Sunday" by Angelique Durand

- Pretty well anything written by Anne McCaffrey, Mercedes
Lackey, Laurell K. Hamilton, Jilly Cooper and Kelley Armstrong

- C.S. Lewis' Naria series

- "Godbody" by Theodore Sturgeon

- Spider Robinson's Callahan books

Now I want to go re-read everything in the list above (not that
I haven't already, several times in some cases).

I missed the beginning of this thread, fairly unusual for me/my server.

Anyway here's my list o' favs:
David Eddings The Belgariad series and the Malorian (?) series (10 books
total, put one down, picked the next up!) His latest release, written
"with" his wife, is utter crap, though.
Madeline L'Engle's series(?) that started with A Wrinkle in Time
The first few books of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, but then it got
tiresome
Little Women
The Fountainhead
Rebecca
Jane Eyre

That might be it. I don't have a list handy in my head, so that's what
comes to mind when I try to think of "a list".

Two new favorites for me are:
Harry Potter
Eragon

There you go, for what it's worth

I got a *lot* more out of "Eight Cousins" and "Rose In Bloom" (especially the
latter) when I re-read them after 15 years of reading Regency romances! There
were all sorts of nuances that went straight past me at age 10.

Lol! Me too! I had more fun reading them aloud to my daughter!
I was traveling a lot when the first book came out. I bought two copies, and
every evening at 7:30 p.m. (at home), I'd call and read to her for half an
hour, each of us with a book. I'd tell the clients that I had an important
call scheduled for that time, and I'd find an empty office to use.

Of course, I had to read it again once I got home, because the phone reading,
"didn't count." It only counts when you have your arm around the listener to
give hugs during the scary parts.

For the most recent book, DD grabbed it out of the Fed Ex guy's hand and
immediately ran to her room and began reading. Twelve hours later, I made
her go to bed because it was getting late, and I started reading. When she
woke up the next morning, I was almost finished with the book, and DD stood,
arms crossed and tapping her toe until I could read the last few pages and
return the book to her. She then spent another couple of hours reading until
she, too, was finished.

I suppose we'll have to buy two copies of book when number 6 comes out.
After all, DD is now a lot bigger than I am. :-)

Egad. It would probably take me a year to list all my favorites! But a quick
cross section, with the books by category but in no particular order:

Science Fiction and Fantasy --
LOTR
the "Mageworlds" series by Doyle & McDonald
anything by Diane Duane
anything by Janet Kagan
almost anything by John Barnes
"A Civil Campaign" by Lois McMaster Bujold
"Marooned in Realtime" by Vernor Vinge
the "Honor Harrington" series by David Weber
anything by Allen Steele
the "Mage Winds" and "Mage Storms" trilogies by Mercedes Lackey; also her two
"Tarma and Kethry" books and "By the Sword", which is T&K NextGen
the "Crossroads" trilogy by Nick O'Donohoe
anything by James Schmitz (teaser for other Schmitz fans: can you say "The
Wizard of Karres"?)

Mystery --
the "Benjamin January" series by Barbara Hambly
the Lord Darcy series by Randall Garrett, and the pastiches by Michael Kurland
(more Lord Darcy pastiches in the pipeline, I'm told -- hooray!)
Laurie King's Sherlock Holmes pastiches, featuring an older Holmes paired with
a streetwise American tomboy in the WW1 era
the "China Bayles" series by Susan Wittig Albert
the "Jocelyn O'Rourke" series by Jane Dentinger
Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot books

Regency --
Well, there's no getting around the fact that Georgette Heyer stands head and
shoulders above everyone else. And her books are currently being reprinted
again! But I also like Elsie Lee's Regencies, almost as much as Heyer's.

I do read other stuff, believe it or not. But I rarely remember the title and
author of non-fiction works I like, which would mean running all over the house
to track them down. In general, I enjoy reading about forensic science, music,
and etymology; also "debunking" works such as "Lies My Teacher Told Me" (which
is about the systematic mis-teaching of American history in schools) and a fair
number of anti-Creationist books.

I'm never going to catch up (not a bad thing), I'm on the 6th book in
the series. I'm reading them in order though I know that's not really
necessary. These are great summer time reads!

Well, I have an awful lot of favorite books, many of which have already been
mentioned here, so I'll list a couple which haven't. Almost all Fantasy/SF at
this moment.

Philip Pullman: "His Dark Materials" series (I've pushed this one here before
:) )
[ "The Northern Lights" (UK) = "The Golden Compass" (US), "The Subtle Knife",
"The Amber Spyglass"]. Can be found in both Young Adults and Adult SF/F.
YOU MUST READ!

C.S. Friedman : "This Alien Shore", "The Madness Season" - really different S/F
universes!

C.S. Lewis: "Space" series ["Out of the Silent Planet", "Perelandra", "That
Hideous Strength"]
- couldn't believe he wrote this at the time he did, quite different from
narnia
(though still moralistic)

Orson Scott Card: All of the "Ender" series, "SongMaster" is quite different

Lewis Caroll: "Sylvie and Bruno"/"Sylvie and Bruno Continued"
Sorry, I love these WAY more then Alice in Wonderland. Lots of philosophy
as well as really cute fairies with charector.

Jane Austin: "Pride and Prejudice" (Can't help it, this is my all-time favorite)

I have more :) but can't remember then at this second. I am sure this will keep
me up at night :)

Ye ghods, I can't believe I forgot to put those on my list! Also "In Conquest
Born", yet another very different SF universe. I don't like her fantasy stuff
nearly as much as her SF. "The Madness Season" has the single most satisfying
final line I've ever seen in any book -- but you have to read the whole book
first to understand *why* it's so perfect.
