I recommend:

1. The alchemist (Paulo Coelho) - this is one of the best books that i really love. It's not that long so i can asure you that you will not get bored.

2. 11 minutes (Paulo Coelho) - this is a very romantic book, though i do not recommend it to minors...=D

3. 12th Angel (Og Mandino) - I've read this when I was in 6th or so grade and I certainly loved it.

Also read the books by Bob Ong. You wouldn't regret buying any of it.

Will do and thanks, I'll check Asimov's work. :)

I've actually been reading Left Hand of Darkness lately and I found it to be quite interesting book with different take of things, not to mention it's a rare sight to see such detailed description of alien culture especially when androgynous hermaphroditic creatures are involved.

Have you read Hyperion by any chance? I just found it spectacular if not too epic at times, but phenomenal read.

Dan Simmons, but it's only a 1st book in Hyperion Cantos (that's the right word, isn't it?).
I suggest it because it oozes with details and layers of story, very much like Dune, but it's pacing is somewhat slower.
