The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy
Adams, Douglas, 1952-2001
Its loony humor that revels in its absurdity IN SPACE! A classic that deserves your attention, if only for endless quotability

I love the music, but don't let that stop you from reading this. The trials and tribulations of the cartoon band are funny, weird, british, and full of awesome songs. I wish they had continued the audiobook, which was narrated by Joss Ackland, because it was great

Great gamer book, even for non-gamers. I guess that makes it a great book, but you get the idea

One of the "praises" from the cover of my edition claimed it was "the book of revelation as written by monty python." Sign me up!

Seeing as this is a whole series, I'll limit my comments to this one. This whole series is fantastic. The art style is a great choice for this narrative, and scott himself is much better than Michael Cera's portrayal, Pick them all up, and then see the movie.

Reichs, Kathy.
Stereotypical teen novel fare, but its done well. The whole "bones" tie-in isn't really necessary, but it helps tie the book to something else. This is, of course, the first in an ongoing series, so keep that in mind

Greek tragedy. Nuff said. Get your classic fix here. Oedipus Rex is great, Colonus is ok, and Antigone is good. it works, even with some continuity issues.
