i always like dharma bums by kerouac, japphy ryder is the most unattainable character, (gary snyder could be a demi-god) \.....
i always like the robe by lloyd bridges, maybe cause i grew up catholic with degrees in history and ancient studies with a focus on latin and greek, like story and it gave me the goose quills when i read it, ...
and a couple others, i like howards zinn's peoples history of the united states, encyclopedia of witchcraft and demonology by robbins, reading that book is like having no port in a hurricane, then Let the trumpet sound, the life of martin luther king jr. by oates, reading about todays prophets thrills me to crazy, anywho, who can select just of few from thousands

Three books I cannot live without, and constantly dip into........
Ulyses, James Joyce.
Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.
Selected Essays. Samuel Butler....
from which I quote if I may.......
'I do not like books. I believe I have the smallest library of any literary man in London and I have no wish to increase it.........Webster's Dictionary, Whitaker's Almanac and Bradshaw's Railway Guide should be sufficient for any library. It will be time enough to go beyond these when the mass of useful and entertaining matter which they provide has been mastered.'

Difficult to keep it to three books.
My choice would be: 'The Pillars Of The Earth' and its sequel 'World Without End' by Ken Follett.
'London' 'Sarum' 'Russka' 'The Forest' by Edward Rutherford.
'The Vizard Mask' by Diana Norman.
'Meetings With remarkable Trees' by Thomas Pakenham.
All of an historical nature.

Not absolute favourites, nor in any particular order, but three very highly recommended specimens:
One Hundred Years Of Solitude, Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Gravity's Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon,
Point Counter Point, Aldous Huxley
A Glastonbury Romance, John Cowper Powys
Wolf Solent (much shorter and easier to handle than a G R) JCPowys
The Magic Mountain, Thomas Mann
The Glass Bead Game, Herman Hesse, and, number three
The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant (both trilogies) , Stephen Donaldson,
Darwin's Dangerous Idea, Daniel Dennett,
Victory, Lord Jim, Chance, or An Outcast of The Islands, Joseph Conrad.

How to lose friends and alienate people - authors too numerous to mention.
The Sunday Times (oh come on, it IS a book, each week!)
Winnie Il Poo. It took me into Latin and that is SO useful for medication and gravestones. t x
