Book Please

It is finished. My Masters that is. so now I have the liberty to read any and everything I want. I have compiled quiet a collection of "books to read" in my own library, however, I want to know what books you recommend as "must reads".
What's on your must read list?
What's on your favorites list?
What's on your "don't waste your time" list?

Fair warning: I don't read fiction unless it is a "classic". But I'm open to suggestions and I really want to get reading so let me know!!!

some recent favorites and must reads (and i'm sorry, they are fiction)...the kite runner, my name is asher lev, life of pi. and for the nonfiction, i just finished in the name of Jesus by Henri Nouwen...awesome! happy reading! dayna

No Fiction?....tisk tisk.
One recent memoir I read was "Her Last Death". It is a bout the relationship between a woman and her mother. It is an easy quick read.
Some Classics that I will always love... The Count of Monte Cristo. The Plague (I know we had to read it in High School but it is so much better the second time) anything by Camus is great. The Great Gatsby (again so much better the second time). Wuthering Heights (darn you Heithcliff you get me every time). Memoirs of a Geisha...ok technically that is not a classic but it leads me into some other great books you should try...
The Eyre Affair. Angles and Demons. Interpreter of Maladies. - Jenn

i don't know if you would consider it a classic, but I've been reading the Chronicles of Narnia. It's such an easy and fun read, good for summer.
but, I'm sure you've tackled most of my most favorite books, "searching for god knows what" by D. Miller, "I am not, but I know I am" or "the air I breathe" by Louie Giglio, "the pleasures of God" by J Piper, or for something completely different, "confessions of a street addict" by jim cramer, the "mad money" guy from CNBC. I'm in the middle still, but it's great.

I talk WAY too much about absolutely nothing, but it's my own way of getting to what actually matters. Too analytical but at times it comes in handy. Enjoy hearing peoples stories. Get bugged by stereo-type people. Bad speller. Secretly lazy. Quasi OCD. Carry a constant frustration for the marginalization within America. Sarcastic. Suffer from (UL) aka uncontrollable laughter...never know when it's going to hit.
