@ AnnaNiki: HI! I like reading so much too. Cannot tell what's my favourite book, cause there are many, and there still are many I have to read! But recently I read for the 3rd time (for a university class I had) "The catcher in the rye" and I liked it even more, after the class..
I read "harry potter" too, and all of Agatha Christie's and Patricia Cornwell's books. The Bronte's book is beautiful too.
A book I'd suggest is by Carlos Ruiz Zafon "La sombra del viento" (I write the title in spanish cause I read it in that language, I don't know how it's been translated in English).

@radwimps: I'm surprised you read "Il nome della rosa", it's pretty long and difficult, with all those parts in latin, but Umberto Eco is a master. It's a book by a very important and estimated Italian author and I guess 1 Italian out o 100 read it! Well done.

I don't have a favourite, but I think that 'Lord of the Flies' was the strangest book I've ever read.
Sometimes little boring but amazing.

I really like classic, so all Jane Austen Books (but I prefer BBC series), 'Wuthering Heights', 'Gone with the wind' and some fantastic.. 'Hobbit', 'Lord of the rings' and the greatest books ever:
'The Witcher' by polish writer, Andrzej Sapkowski.

And many, many other.

Well obviously there's Harry Potter. But I really like Cathy Reich's and Karen Rose's stuff as well. Then there's Mansfield Park and Pride and Prejudice, The Stravaganza series is quite good too. Oh and The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Le Roux is amazing, as are the Wicked books.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov is one of my all-time favorites. If you have seen the movies - I assure you that the book is better and more interesting. I can recommend it with all my heart.

Then there is The Lord of the Rings. I learned to read because of that book. My mother told my father not to read such things to a young girl – I was about 4 years old. My father did what my mother told him to, so I had to learn to read to finish the book my father had started to read to me as a bed-time story. When he saw me struggle to understand the book, he decided not to follow my mother's orders and read it to me anyway.
When I'm older I will read the book to my children. I still love the book.

Fahrenheit 451 is not to be forgotten either. Ray Bradbury made grate job with the book.

Great book, but it's kinda like "go ask alice" for plot and characters.

Suskind, "Le parfum"
Goethe "Les souffrances du jeune Werther"

For comics, I love a french drawer, Manu Larcenet, but I don't if his books was translated.
