Hello, World! (Couldn't help myself)
What are some of y'all's favorite books? I am finishing Ready Player One right now, and I am looking for some new reading material. Suggestions?

    The entire Discworld series by Terry Pratchett is simply brilliant.

    Just read them in publication order, though feel free to jump around if the desire strikes you

    Ovid's Metamorphosis is an all-time favorite of mine. Some versions are figuratively biblical in length because it covers mythology but it's a fantastic read.

    @rookiemaverick Is that a book? If so, when googled, I got mixed results.

    Books, there's a damn lot of them, so authors rather: Barker, Tolkien, Lukjanenko(ru), Martin, Gaiman, Rowling, Paolimi and stories about Nibelungs(no matter what author, though I like Germans). A lot of them have a rich storytelling, so it's nice. And way better than any movie/series based on those (even ASoIaF, yes).

    And Wheel of Time! :3

    I have many favorite books but the one I read (at least partially) almost every year is The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy by Douglas Adams...
    I love that book!

    I have that book to read yet, is it good?
    Also for sugestion/s, if you're into solving crimes an such (thanks GT for not helping) I'd recommend the Will Trent series by Karen Slaughter (appropriate name, really). Can't really tell you where to start cause I think that the english books follow a different order that the portuguese ones (translated, of course). Also "The Crucifix Killer" by Chris Carter.
    As for science fiction I recommend "Limit", a 1100 pages book (again, in portguese, dunno about the english version) about a stroll in space gone wrong. Took me 6m to finish (but read half the book in 2w or so maybe) mostly because school got in the way.
    And the first 3 Milleniums. Started reading the 4th but so far it's on hold because it doesn't have the same charm as the other 3.

    Ready Player One was great - hoping the author writes more!
