Well, as the title says: what are your favorite books, comics, graphic novells, magazines etc.

Mine are:
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (title says it all, secret diary of the president in which he explains his days of vampire hunting)
Naked Lunch, read the first few pages, bought it, must read it further. The first pages are way to psycho and surreal, just love it. It felt like an esher project (you know, never ending staircases etc.)
Day Watch (night watch, twillight watch, ultimate watch, Russian vampire books, psycho and very very well written)
Dune (might be my favorite sci-fi saga, personally, that's where all the sci-fi trouble started for me)
Watchment (just, THE example of a graphic novell, brilliant)

what are yours to recommend?

SSHHTTT!!
Im ignoring that this happens. Since this is one of the best and philosopical books ever you can NEVER put into a movie.
Sure the story you can, but not the depth and insight that the book has

I've read all his books. I think all are good, I didn't like The Zahir as much though. But Veronika decides to die and the Alchemist are my faves:)
