Well, since I have no knitting to post about (I'm swatching) I was going to do a book meme, but then I got too lazy. So I'm just going to post some of my favorite books instead. :D
Pride and Prejudice - I dig Jane Austen. I think I own a copy of almost every book she's written, and I like them all. This one's my favorite though. I tend to have my own prejudices, and I love having them overthrown.
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (Robert A. Heinlein) - My buddy Sam got me to read this book (he's taking over the world, by the way, so y'all probably ought to read this book too). It took me a bit to get into it, but I was fascinated by the dialect and the way the story was told. The ending was not prettily summed up either (ie - not hollywood) and it really pulled me in and made me think/wonder.
Harry Potter - whole damn series. JK Rowling is a fabulous writer.
Ender's Game (Orson Scott Card) - I read Xenocide on my honeymoon and got sucked into this series. Another great writer.
Lamb; the Gospel According to Biff(Christopher Moore) - this has got to be the funniest book I have ever read. It's about Jesus' years that are missing from the Bible, as told by his best friend Biff. Caveat - you MUST have a sense of humor about religion and/or God. Otherwise you'll likely be highly offended. As a semi-recovering Catholic, I about wet myself.
The Eight (Katherine Neville) - I love history, and I love historical fiction even more. This is a fabulous book weaving the french revolution, alchemy, and present day (70's). A bit hollywood, but good nonetheless.
