JRR Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings is the runaway favourite to win a BBC poll to find our fave book.
Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire, Winnie The Pooh and The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe are also on "The Big Read" shortlist.
It's got us thinking about our fave books.
Maybe you're a big fan of modern writers like JK and Phillip Pullman.
Or maybe you like classic tales like Great Expectations and Little Women?
Perhaps you don't like fiction at all - preferring to stick to factual books.
Here's your chance to tell all about your fave books...

I love the Harry Potter books and I can't wait for the next one to come out. I was so excited when the fifth one came out I read it in two days.

My favorite book is the Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. That book opens your eyes to the types of things teenagers had to go through during the 50's, and many of the issues are still faced today. It gives you first-hand experience of a teenager who lived a hard life, and on the wrong side of the tracks. This book gives you a taste of reality, and what the real world is like. It amazed me how different some people perceive the world. This books is outstanding.

I think my favourite is Hole. The book is great, everybody in my family has read it except my Dad! I have seen the film but it is not as good as the book

I love the Princess Diaries!! They are brilliant books!!
Harry Potter is great too! I really like Order of the Phoenix, though it took me forever to read!!

"Where the Sidewalk Ends" and "The Light in the Attic" are the greatest!! I like poems, but I LOVE Harry Potter too!

I have not got a fave book but my fave authors are Jacqueline Wilson, Roald Dahl, Eoin Coller & William Shakspere - we studied his Macbeth at school.

My favourite books are the 'His Dark Materials' by Philip Pullman. I find the Hobbit and LOTR a bit boring.
Louise, 13, London
My fave books are the Harry Potter series, but I also like Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah - it's a really moving story.

Across The Nightingale Floor is the best in the world! It is about a boy called Takeo who is rescued from an evil war lord. He has special powers too, like being invisible, being at two places at once and other stuff.

Phillip Pullmans' His Dark Materials books are amazing! The last one (The Amber Spyglass) left my crying my eyes out at the end!! Also, they are really clever because most of the theories in them are based on real life scientific theories.

"Bridge Of Birds" by Barry Hughart is THE FUNNIEST BOOK EVER!!! It's set in an ancient China that never was. It is beautifully written and you never want it to end.
Emma, 15, Victoria
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is the greatest. JK Rowling has a true gift.
Chelsea, 14, Surrey
I LOVE HARRY POTTER!!! I also love Jacqueline Wilson books, and when I was eight I used to LOVE the Babysitters Club books!
Lucie, 12, Winchester
I love Mary Downing Hahn books. They're great mysteries to read. And they are exciting and tend to be very scary. If you want to read one start off with Wait till Helen comes, because it really rocks. If you like not so hard to read mysteries she the author for you.
Jasmine, 10, Chicago, USA
Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl all the way man!!!!!!! All of them are so well written that you can't help but love them!! LOTR and Artemis Fowl maybe be a little odd for some people but they just rock!! you can't help but get really into the story and I can not wait for the next HP and Artemis book!!

I love Malorie Blackman's Noughts and Crosses. It has a great plot.
Beth, 14, Wirral
My fave is most definitely Harry Potter, but after that, I would have to say, probably, Holes.
Kristina, 12, USA
LOTR! LOTR! Wait I think I forgot something ummm...LOTR!
Ellie, 13, Loughborough
I love Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. It's really funny once you understand the funny way of speaking.
Helen, 15, Birmingham
I love The Hobbit. I'm disappointed that it wasn't made into a film like LOTR!
Sally, 16, Liverpool
I'm reading this series of books by Kate Cann. It's about this girl, Coll, and her lovelife and friends problems! They're fantastic books!
Kate, 13, Aylesbury
I love the Harry Potter books. I just enter that world. I feel like I'm a character in the story!
Sophie, 12, Stevenage
I adore Phillip Pullman's Dark Materials because they are so much better than other modern books. They have more detail, last longer and will always be classics.
Sarah, 13, Eastbourne
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is my fave. It was so good. I laughed, I cried, and I cheered. It was an emotional ride that made me yearn for more.

I love the books by Meg Cabot, especially the Princess Diaries series!
Fai, 12, Birmingham
I love Jacqueline Wilson's books! My favourite has got to be Lola Rose! It's a realistic story about family life. I think it's brilliant!
Jess, 13, London
I love Roald Dahl books. My fave is Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. Brilliant!
