Justyntym's post reminded me that we should have people post their top 10 books list.

Although the list may change periodically, for the moment, here are mine in no particular order:

1. The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
2. Aztec, by Gary Jennings
3. Spangle, by Gary Jennings
4. The Journeyer, by Gary Jennings
5. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, by William L. Shirer
6. Shibumi, by Trevanian
7. The Dune Trilogy, by Frank Herbert
8. The Pleasure of Finding Things Out, by Richard Feynman
9. An Essay on Morals, by Philip Wylie (out of print?)
10. The Demon Haunted World, by Carl Sagan

Honorable mention goes to uncountable books but Rich Dad, Poor Dad and Cash Flow Quadrant, both by Robert Kiyosaki rank right up there. Also, Anne McCaffrery's Dragonriders of Pern series are very good.
