RE-Read List From High School..... any input??

I shut off most TV the beginning of last year (because it all SUCKS) and got back into reading. I have chosen some new books as well as books recommended at the various blogs I read.

I enjoy Steven King (his politics SUCK) and books on Paleo Eating and Low Carbing.
I enjoy Fiction, Science Fiction/ Fantasy, American History, Diet and Health.

Some of the titles that I have read recently are, in particular order:
The Dome
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
Unintended Consequences
One Second After
Molon Labe
1776
The Great Bridge
Undaunted Courage, Lewis and Clark
The Dark Tower Series ( Books 1 thru 7 in order)
The Primal Blueprint
7 Deadly Scenarios: A Military Futurist Explores War in the 21st Century
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto
Anthem
Atlas Shrugged
Starship Troopers
Animal Farm
The Lord of the Flies
1984
Citizens
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
Day by Day Armeggedon
World War Z
Watership Down
The Fountainhead
Deep Nutrition
Monster Hunter
Monster Hunter Vendetta

The reason for starting this post is that I have been rereading some of the books that I remember from my younger days. I reread the following two great books:

The Stand
Swan Song

and I just finished re-reading:

Fahrenheit 451, which was on my High School reading list. Now that I am older and wiser it was a great book that was hard to put down.

I am planning on getting:
Catch -22
The Catcher in the Rye
To Kill a Mocking Bird
Huckleberry Finn

What books do you guys/gals remember reading that are worth going back to??

  1. I'd recommend Terry Pratchett, and he Discworld series! Highly entertaining, also Ender's World by Jason Scott Card.

  2. F me, Swan Song! I loved that book.
    I recommend the Ringworld series by Larry Niven and The Pillars of the Earth (and the sequel, 'world without end') by Ken Follett.

    Oh, and the mothership: the unabridged Moby Dick.

  3. AH, geez, almost forgot- the best sci fi series written in the last 20 years (in my opinion)- Pandora's Star, by Peter Hamilton. Easily my favorite sci-fi series of all time.

  7. A little late to this one,

    The Forever War by Haldeman
    Enders Game by Card
    The Killer Angels by Shaara

    While not really sci fi,
    Call of the Wild by London
    is a good one.

    Thanks for the list, I will have to check some of them out!
