Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne was one of January’s YOBC. While I couldn’t easily get my hands on the Tim Curry audio version mentioned on Darkcargo, my library still had a pretty decent verison by Chris Pebble. An added bonus was that Brendan Fraser’s face was on the cover. Alas, I have not yet seen the movie.

Pretty Rock from Journey to the Center of the Earth

This classic gets both my thumbs up. There was adventure and the unknown, plus cool Icelandic cipher, rocks and more rocks, plus fossils – living and dead. I’m glad YOBC kicked my butt into gear and got me to finally read some Jules Verne.
