Tell all your favorite books! Marvel at the similarities in taste! Be shocked by the differences! Revisit titles long lost to your memory! I'll start us off with my favorite book. It would have to be Dune by Frank Herbert. That series blew my mind at the tender age of 10, and, thanks to my father, introduced me to really GOOD fiction, rather then the "weird tales" I'd been consuming earlier. I really not a fan of Herbert's son though, who is tearing apart the series. In any case, The Stand by Stephen King comes in as a close second, simply because I really liked the story as a whole.
