What an amazing dream that truly is, Anthony! Undoubtedly, the Harry Potter Septology, the Series of Unfortunate Events, the Dune Trilogy, Star Wars, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, Dante's Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paraiso are easily perhaps some of the most astonishingly good books there ever are in the market. If I were to suggest possible books that you could add to your already fascinating future collection, though, I would most likely say that you should include the ff: 1. The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged, Anthem, We the Living, and Capitalism: the Unknown Ideal, among other books by Ayn Rand; 2. Thus Spake Zarathustra, Beyond Good and Evil, and other books by Friedrich Nietzsche; 3. The Blind Watchmaker, The Selfish Gene, and God Delusion by Richard Dawkins; 4. The Tipping Point and Blink by Malcolm Gladwell; 5. Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner; 6. Cider House Rules and The World According to Garp by John Irving; 7. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee; 8. Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger; 9. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinback; 10. Animal Farm and 1984 by George Orwell; 11. Crime and Punishment as well as Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky; 12. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki; 13. Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka; 14. Nowegian Wood, Kafka on the Shore, Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and other books by Haruki Murakami; 15. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley; 16. Hope for the Flowers by Tina Paulus; 17. The Missing Piece meets Big O by Shel Silverstein; 18. Who moved my Cheese by Spencer Johnson; 19. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller; 20. I, Claudius by Robert Graves; 21. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov; 22. I, Robot and other books by Isaac Asimov; 23. 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene; 24. The Art of War by Sun Tzu; 25. The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli; 26. The Chamber, The Client, The Partner, The Firm, and other books by John Grisham; 27. The Ego and Its Own by Max Stirner; 28. A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking; 29. 120 Days of Sodom by Marquis De Sade; 30. Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo by Dr. Jose Rizal These are just some of the books I could think of right now, which you could perhaps consider adding to your future collection. Happy myLotting and more power!

I love books. I used to buy them and save them all the time,but I soon ran out of room to save them. I now mainly just borrow from the library. It is alot cheaper. If I ever have a huge house with a library then I'll start collecting again. I think you should add The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings Triology to your list for sure. I also love anything by James Patterson. Happy reading.

I must agree, with the above poster - James Patterson is great. He had at least 30 or 40 books. You may also want to check out Darwin's Radio and Darwin's children by Greg bear ANd don't forget The DaVinci Code, ANgels and Demons and anything else by Dan Clark

For the sake of proper attribution, if I'm not mistaken, Angels and Demons as well as The Da Vinci Code were not creations of Dan Clark, but of Dan Brown.
