    Odyssey and Iliad, both are fantastic, you can really see why these books have continued to be read for 1000's of years.
    I'm sorry I can't say which translation I suggest the most, but they truly are great books.
    I read Odyssey and Iliad in literature class my freshman or sophomore year in high school. Those were good.

    Anything written by Asimov! Foundation series is pretty good.

    Also, Jonathan Strange and Mr.Norrell by Susanna Clarke. It's a masterpiece.

    The older Asimov is good. First three foundation novels plus the 4th are good, but I think the last ones, and his later novels ruined all his older works by trying to tie different universes together.

    My daughter's class is embarking on a group read/bookclub type thing with the parents. We're all reading Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli (and then having a group discussion in a few weeks).

    I just finished today. It's a really great Holocaust-related read.

    Well I wouldn't quite say ruined, Asimov at his worst is still better than most if you ask me. But yeah, I agree the later ones feel a little out of place.

    Asimov frequently said he didn't want to continue the foundation series. It was supposed to be over with the first book, I think.
