I like books, and I like reading them.

I've got scientific books as well as regular (and less regular) literature. The following list is by no means updated:

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The late Douglas Adams' popular story that reveals the truth about the meaning with Life, the Universe and Everything. It actually consists of six or seven books, people cannot seem to agree on how many. The story begins with the destruction of Earth (due to the need of a new hyperspace bypass) and continues in this way. You'll learn about improbability and bistromath theory and lots of other interesting stuff that might prove useful.
J. R. R. Tolkien
J. R. R. Tolkien wrote some magnificient books which ought to be read by everybody.
The Discworld series
Terry Pratchett's funny and catchy series about life on the Discworld. All books take place in the same universe (and a funny one it is), but there are different series: There might be more. I've only read about the Watch, Death and Rincewind, but I buy new books from time to time, so eventually I might get through them all. If you like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you'll definitely like these too.
