Favorite books

I've been meaning to do this one. From Simple Katie's blog

I've been discussing books with different people lately and wanted to post a list of some of my favorite books. This is by no means, complete or in any kind of order:

I have more, but I went through my bookshelf and just picked them out as I went through them. You can see most of the books I have, no longer have, will read, or not, here.

My reason for posting this list is rather selfish. I'd like to start a meme of sorts, mainly because I'm always looking for new reading material. So if you are so inclined, post 15 of your favorite books on your blog and comment so I know to come check out your list, though I already read the regular commenters here on a regular basis...
