Sword of Shannara series
Terry Brooks
Although I have yet to finish the last book in the series (I will do it someday!), these are the books that got me started and hooked on fantasy adventure. I have little to compare them to, unfortunately, because I read them so often instead of moving on to other authors. ^_^;;

The Pink Motel
Carol Ryrie Brink
Hell, I don't even know if this book is even *available* anymore. It was my mother's from when she was a child, and it's become one of my favorites. This was the book that taught me that it was perfectly okay to be myself, no matter how odd or eccentric I may be.

HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy
Douglas Adams
If you haven't read these books, you should be shot. Or flung into space. Or turned into a pot of petunias. Or something like that.

The Myst Books
Rand and Robyn Miller, with David Wingrove
I sucked at the games, but these books are so beautifully written, it's like I'm standing there in the cave with Atrus, seeing the D'Ni markings upon the wall. The sketches in the books make the reading even better, as well.

Roald Dahl
This is a book everyone should read. It teaches tolerance, genius, and even that teachers really *can* be pure evil. 

Oh, the Places You'll Go!
Dr. Seuss
Dammit, it made me cry on graduation, a thing I swore never to do. Cry, that is.

Daniel Quinn
THIS BOOK CHANGES YOUR LIFE. I am *dead* serious. I had to read it for my college freshmen class, and I have never seen the world the same since. It's become one of my favorites, so much in fact, that I bought a copy off a classmate when I had to part with my original copy.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon (manga)
Naoko Takeuchi
Much, much better than the Japanese animé, and a *helluva* lot better than the American dubbed animé. Give it a shot, it's not that bad.
