Lolita
It has been awhile since I read this book and others by the author. I recommend it highly. Most people think of it only as a sex book. In fact the name Lolita has become synonomous with sex with a young …

The Hobbit- First Edition
Loved it when I read it myself. Was I too young when they read it to me at school, or did I just want to read at my own pace?

The Lord of the Rings (novel)
They read the Hobbit to me at school; I think I didn't like being read to so I refused to read Lord of the Rings till I was at college and a friend recommended it. Good friend. I was hooked.

Flowers for Algernon
A cautionary tale. Just because a thing "can" be done, it does not necessarily follow that it "should" be done.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is, of course, best known for his Sherlock Holmes and Professor Challenger characters. What is much less well known is that Doyle was fascinated with spiritualism and the paranormal. …

The Lord of the Rings (novel)
Okay. Don't get mad that this is popular. Take a read. Develops a love of words and worldbuilding, and a truly deep sense of mythology, one infused with moral and elemental significance.

This has got to be my favorite book of all time. It was introduced to me as a kid. Ignore all the hype. Prepare to hate it, and you might actually enjoy it!
A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott
    Louisa may Alcott is perhaps best known for 'Little Women' and perhaps you are already turning away, not a big fan of this classic story. I wasn't either, in fact 'Little …

The Silmarillion
A bit slow and ponderous, it can be tough to wade through this book. It's an excellent example of an epic mythology, though, and fans of Tolkein's world will appreciate this legendary prehistory.
