i don't read much and havent touched a book in years but i rememebr reading mostly Rhoald dahl book like charlie in the glass elevator and fantastic mr fox, and i read the wizard of oz, which has a lot more story than the film.
Any given Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett book.
American Gods - Neil Gaiman
Ender series - Orson Scott Card (I like the Speaker of the Dead arc better than Bean's though).
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime
"Omg. Where did they get the idea to not use army guys? Are they taking drugs?" --Tim Schafer on originality in videogames
What? No way Noyb, Orson got fucking weird with the speaker of the dead shit. What with the planet full of OCD Chinese people, and the pigs talking to trees, no fucking way. But I really knew he was crazy when they went to the Samoan Planet and were describing the Samoans as gracefull people. That book was bad crazy, Douglas Adams' books are good crazy.
