    [QUOTE=Gandalf;6433412]The seven waters trilogy by Juliet Marillier - a series of books spanning several generations, centring around the women in an irish clan and their ties to the earth (for the record - i suck at explaining this. but the books are divine).
    The first one is a fully-fledged story of the 'six swans' grimm fairy tale.

    ^^ this is,my favourite series. Ive read and reread these books over and over. Im just so inlove with anything Juliet Marillier writes.

    Diana Gabaldons 'outlander series' - Claire ends up going through a time-warp in a stonehenge like rock formation, and ends up in scottland two hundred years prior.
    action, love, murder, mystery etc etc - awesome set of books
    I love the outlander series. I always have one of them on the go.
    Another good series is J D Robb in death series, set in the year 2058 in new eve is a police officer. Each book is about a case and what is happening in her life.

    Yeah- love Pride and Prejudice!

    Elizabeth Gaskell - North and south (if you like period dramas then this one is a great one!)

    J. M Barrie - Peter Pan - I just love this books, it is one of my all time favourite. So much better than any of the movie remakes

    L. M Montgomery - The whole Anne of Green Gables series - what a fantastic story, with fantastic characters

    Agatha Christie =- Anything Poirot or Miss Marple

    For light entertainment - Anything by Mike Gayle - he kind of does chick lit from a Males perspective, highly amusing

    One of my favourite Jane Austen books is - Persuasion

    There is heaps more, but that is all I can think of right now.

    It's funny I watched a documentary about Enid blyton and they are apparently re writing her stories because according to the makers of the film she was somewhat discriminitive in the way she explained things and that there was a lot of spanking and so forth in her stories and children shouldn't be reading about these sort of things. I will be reading my old books to my kids. Fancy changing something that was written almost over 100 years ago :s
