Science Fiction: DUNE, based on original book by Frank Herbert.
The DUNE universe is vast, spanning centuries and worlds, with the power struggle for control of the spice pitting high-born families against one another and against an empire starting to lose its grip. In the background is the story of a family who supports the wrong side in a political struggle, a planet that is terra-formed, and a species nearly wiped out.

Science Fiction: I. Asimov's Robot Series
The Robots of Dawn:
I, Robot, Caves of Steel, The Naked Sun, and The Robots of Dawn
This series introduces Elijah Bailey and Daneel Olivaw, a humanoid robot. I re-read these new copies a couple of years ago when I received them as gifts. Want more Asimov? Read the Foundation series. The movie, I, Robot, with Will Smith is a favourite too!

(An ad shows first but after, there's a montage of images behind the song showing Dylan through the decades.)
My Guilty pleasures:
Guilty of Reading a variety of literary books, especially novels about Paris, France. And mysteries, Dashiel Hammet's, The Maltese Falcon.
