Allow me to recommend that you italicize The Shadow Of The Wind.

Beautifully, lyrically written.
And a marvelous translation.

The Da Vinci Code & Angels and Demons - Dan Brown
HAhaha nice bit of fiction. I get a kick out of the morons that think they are true conspiracy books... then I tell em to read Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent another stupid book of fine fiction often mistaken as truth.

Neuromancer - William Gibson
all the gison books are cyberpunk classics. I do prefer Count Zero a bit more. Mona lisa Overdrive is more of a "meaning of art" book.

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card
Man, absolute classic.

Cryptonomicon - Neal Stephenson
if you loved Snow Crash and The Diamond Age (my sister loved this book and she's not into sci-fi or readng), you will find this book boring and slow. Well, unless of course you are into WWII cryptoraphy and the oriin of computing.

To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Boo Radley houses still freak me out to this day.

if you are into silly humor in the context of D&D universe, Robert Aspirin's Myth series is a great lighthearted reading. In fact it pokes fun at the whole sword and sorcery genre.

Another series that is fun to read is Alan Dean Foster's "Spellsinger" series. Law student by day and sucky rock musician by night, then he finds himself ina universe where animals talk and his music is the same as magic.

cool stuff like that never happens to me.
