    If we're talking sci-fi books, then I think you should add:

    Dune
    Snow Crash
    Endor's Game

    And if you're including fantasy-type books, I would suggest that The Lord of the Rings series should make the list as well.

    I've enjoyed every Star Wars book that I've read, but I haven't really kept up with them (probably only read about 10 or so).

    You're list looks good. I'll have to think about what else to add to the list. This one isn't as easy as the fav movie list. :)

    Forgot that one!

    My list has a little bit of everything... The one I keep going to is Sci-Fi!

    MAN! I totaly forgot about Dune! The last time I read that was back in the early 80's... 83' I think!?!

    I never read Lord Of The Rings.. I never caught my eye, but I will read it before the movie comes out for sure!

    Thanks for the reply Borsk dude!

    Well Mr. Stardeath... Eaters of the Dead was a novel by Michael Crichton... Disney turned it into their version of a movie and called it "The 13th Warrior"... Go figure!?! At any rate...It was an excellent book!:hello:

    My patience has been rewarded with a new book from the master himself, Clive Barker..."Coldheart Canyon"... I can't wait to read that baby! I managed to find me a first edition to boot!
    YAY FOR ME......sigh:yawn:

    Oh!

    Saw and enjoyed the flick. I can see how the book title ties into the subject matter of the movie. Thought the title "Eaters of the Dead" may have been a write belonging to the "Dead" movie series that I enjoy. Or you just may have tried to sneak that bogus title in for the fun. :satan:
