What was your latest book discovery? What are your favorite books of all time?

Today, in Canada, I ventured into a second hand bookstore and discovered The Three Incestuous Sisters by Audrey Niffenegger and was blown away by the simplicity of the text and the complexity of the concepts. My favourite books of all time include Brian Catling's Vorrh series, W.G. Sebald's The Rings of Saturn, Lemony Snicket's A series of Unfortunate Events, Harry Potter and Patrick Suskind's Perfume - The Story of a Murderer.
