The Alvin Maker series (like any long series) does drag on a bit at some points, but overall it's a really good series, definitely worth reading.

If you're a history buff (as I am), definitely read the Alvin Maker series. It's entertaining to see the ways in which the books both depart from history and join up in interesting ways. Plus I love the entire fantasy/magical element of "knacks". It's very believable. The series is a fun read. :)

Partially copied from Pweb II, but recently finished a couple, so I thought I'd update it.

Ender's Game
Speaker for the Dead
Xenocide
Children of the Mind
The Worthing Saga (includes the Worthing Chronicle & some short stories)
The Memory of Earth
The Call of Earth
The Ships of Earth
Earthfall
Earthborn
Ender's Shadow
Shadow of the Hegemon
Shadow Puppets
Investment Councillor
Ender's Game (short story)
First Meetings (yeah, IC and the EG short story again)
Shadow of the Giant
Maps in a Mirror
Treason
Songmaster

Still have yet to read Pastwatch. Not sure what I should go for after that. Possibly Wyrms.

I also have never heard of Treasure Box until it's been mentioned a few times recently, for some reason. Is that good?

I highly recommend checking out the Alvin Maker series. Like above, it's awesome to see where he takes historical figures. Just imagine if the entire continent was colonized by a completely different group of people for a while. Some of the plot twists are great, too. It lacks the emotion of the Ender series, I'd say, but if you could put that aside long enough to read Bean's saga (except for Ender's Shadow and the very end of Shadow of the Giant), you should be fine.
