Yes... please be gentle as i have a congenital fear of fierce and sudden attacks upon my being.
Alrighty, favourite book apart from Tolkien...(tricky) well i dont have a favourite book, film, album or any such thing really, i rate them in terms of "favourite thing at the moment" as time changes IMHO folks tastes. But i suppose in respect to books i always find myself re-reading, aside from Tolkien, i love the works of Steinbeck, "Of Mice and Men and Grapes of Wrath" in particular, I have a thing for 19thC Gothic literature, Poe, Lovecraft, Shelley, Stoker et al..., and the Arthurian Cycle (Mallory, Vulgate, Mabinnogion etc...), Greek Tragedies, Medea, Homer's Iliad, oh crap... i just dont know. Err;
If i was cornered i'd have to say the books that have had the biggest influence on me were either Brave New World or Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (being a biker meself)
hope that kinda answers your question?
