From here and there in my circle and my network, from the NPR list here. Bold if you've read, italicize ones you fully intend to read, underline if it's a book/series you've read part but not all of.

2. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams
3. Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card -- I've read this particular book; don't plan to read the rest.
4. The Dune Chronicles, by Frank Herbert -- I think I skipped one of the books (completely by accident!) but by that time, the whole thing had stopped making sense in my head.
