I recommend these:
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy as a basis for everything else fantasy.
Stranger in a Strange Land
Godchild manga series
Discworld series by Terry Pratchett.
The Iliad and the Odyssey
The complete works of William Shakespeare

Would like to read and haven't:
Most religious texts/writings from around the world
The old Testament of the Bible in it's entirety

Don't mind her, she's the forum's token Debbie Downer.

Anyways, I've always loved The Odyssey since I was a small child, tale of adventure and facing all odds to returned to your loved ones.

There was a movie released some time around 2004 called Cold Mountain that was a re-imagining of the Odyssey in a Civil War setting. It was pretty good.

I went through a staple of translated Greek epics and mythologies when I was a kid.
