    The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. :top:
    Loved it. I read that over the summer just after I turned 14. Of Mice and Men, The Red Pony, The Pearl, East of Eden... all really great reads.

    Stephen Hawking's On The Shoulders of Giants.

    I have not even thought about any other book that I would read after it, as it is long in itself...

    The Fry Chronicles and currently looking for my old copy of The Great Gatsby; the best book that has ever been written. Recommendations of any "classic" books I should get?

    Ouch For pleasure or academic purposes, if you don't mind me asking?
    I wanted to read it - I've not read any Hardy Although I will probably count it for wider reading when my exam gets nearer. Then again it is quite long...

    Loads, but definitely try Tender is the Night by F.Scott Fitzgerald. I think it's a bit better than Gatsby!

    I've got a list of 1984, David Copperfield, Dorian Gray, Oliver Twist (had it but lost it) A Tale of Two Cities, Jekyll and Hyde, so I shall add that to it! Thanks! Not sure it can be as good as Gatsby though, that's such a beautiful book.

    Loved that book .
    It is so very awesome.

    I'm meant to be reading Birdsong, as someone has it reserved for when I'm done with it.. but I want to read the first edition copy of The Demolished Man that I got from the library.

    Choices, choices..

    Haha, in which case you're very brave, taking on Hardy voluntarily We're reading it for English at the moment, and though wonderful, it did take a while to really draw me in
