Recommend me your favourite book

We're on our way to the library and I am drawing a blank as to what to look for. I tend to like non fiction, but actually do not mind fiction at all. In the past, I have read murder mysteries (my favourite), but also appreciated humour.
Can anyone recommend me at least one book you think I 'ought' to read??

I am a book freak! Here is my all time favorite book.
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy.

Have you read Running with Scissors? I almost bought it yesterday and may yet.

Personally I like the female murder mystery writers.

Sue Grafton and Martha Grimes for starters. Martha has a new book on the stands; I think Sue's latest is "R" for whatever R stands for.

I'd be useless for this question. I haven't bought a book in about six months, and that was a book on hockey.

I wish I could help you there, Ingrid.

Thanks Guys, that's quite a list already. Including War and Peace would mean I'd be reading till the end of the year!!lol
Mary, I believe I actually have a book floating around here from Arundhati.. sometimes I buy something and with the kids' distraction clear forget about it! Zazou..great suggestions.. especially the short stories are a good read when you're pressed for time and you have a few minutes you-know-where (ahem) to do a quick scan..
Ann, I sooo love murder mysteries and I used to read a whole slew by P.D. James. The ladies you mentioned I have seen on the book shelves and I just have never yet had the interest to pick one up. That will change!
Robster..surely you have a favourite writer!? OR book?? Even if it's non fiction I'd go for it.. give it another try buddy!
Jeremiah, I have missed you around here.. naturally, the Bible is in our house and , if you are so curiously inclined.. I got the Lhamsa version which is basically the 'corrected' version that were mistranslations to begin with. Hmm.. seeing that you're so interested in those kinda ahm..'things'.. perhaps I should continue this other blog that I had written by Dr. Rocco Errico.. I'll get back to you on that one.. Jeremiah is a household name in our lil' blog community because let's face it, no one that I know can put it so uniquely as he does! Good to see you girl, I have been tooo absent online ..
Rogel, wasn't there a mini (well, longer than that) tv series of war and peace? I seem to remember something like that from when I was a teenager.. I totally agree with you though, the Russian classics are an absolute must! Thanks for the reminder and Atlas shrugged sounds very familiar, can't remember anything about it though..
again.. thanks for the list and I will write it out and take it to the library..
