depends on what you like...I love those new thick history books, they cost from 20 to 90 USD, when I get a new house I must have a room that will be a libary.

Anything from Anne Rice is good, if you're into vampire/witch tales. If you're more into classical literature, then something from Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare, Gaston Leroux, D.H. Lawrence (classical eroticism) or Robert Louis Stevenson. And Nick Hornby's books are fun and very good, but always very 'English' =)

Good Omens - very funny.

Strange: did you know that at college Robert Rankin accidentally spilled hot coffee on Freddie Mercury's lap? And that they're both fans of the painting "The Fairytellers Masterstroke"?

I agree. The Da Vinci Code is awesome. Who knew Da Vinci was a pillow biter?

Great Expectations, wonderful book :)
These are a few of my faves:

To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde
anything by Hermann Hesse
or if these are a bit too heavy...:
Blast from the Past - Ben Elton (very funny)
The Lifes and Loves of a She-devil - Fay Weldon (or other titles but this is my fave written by her)
The Hobbit - Tolkien
The Discovery of Heaven - Harry Mulisch.

:)

I'm reading a great sort-of childrens' book it's really funny! It's THE SWORD IN THE STONE by T. H. White I'm not positive on the initials of the author but it is great it actually makes me think of Harry Potter just a little bit obviously it's about boy King Arthur.
