Hitchhiker's Guide is awesome and I really enjoyed Neil Gaiman's American Gods too. I've never read (or attempted to read) any Tolkien; when I was younger I assumed that was for the D&D crowd. I saw the movies and hated them though. I made a stab at Games of Thrones and barely made it past the prologue before I set it aside.
So much great stuff left off the list.

1. The Lord of the Rings
Tolkien is a God! *puts greys on ignore*
2. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
3. Ender's Game
4. The Dune Chronicle
Only read the first one, it's good but I can't get over the whole recycling urine thing, sorry. Blech
5. A Song of Ice & Fire Series
I'm totally in love with it.
Scary and so amazingly well done
7. Fahrenheit 451
Haven't read it but would like to.
8. The Foundation Trilogy
Only read the first one and I must read more. Brilliant.
9. Brave New World
erm, haven't read.
10. American Gods
This one either.
I think it's a pretty decent list. I love sci-fi and fantasy. I would have preferred to see a separate list for sci-fi and one for fantasy but these are pretty much classics. There are a lot more brilliant books could have been mentioned, of course.
