I noticed that the "Worst Books" thread has been getting attention lately, so I thought it would be nice to remind people that this thread exists too.
Some of my favorites:
Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" series
Huxley's "Island"
Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Death by Black Hole"
DFTBA

I'm going to add One Hundred Years of Solitude to my list. It's really freakin' good, even if confusing at times.
