If you like Heinlein, try Time Enough for Love.

Heinlein probably has a few other time travel books, but I haven't read tons of his stuff. Of course, there's The Time Traveller by HG Welles, if you like classics.

The Time Traveller was decent.

Anne McCaffery's Dragonflight is just horrendous imo

The Light of other Days, by Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter, it deals with time travel in an oblique but fascinating way. People can't actually travel trough time themselves, but an advanced wormhole-based camera system dubbed the Worm Cam allows them to view any location in the universe at any point in history.

The Anubis Gate by Tim Powers; kind of sci-fi, kind of fantasy, and a blend of different genres, but one of the best time travel books I've read.

+1 Vote on Hyperion; some great Time Travel ideas in the series

Ilium (Dan Brown). Another interesting take on the whole Time Travel theme -- this one about Greek Gods.

Absolutely love Illium and Olympos, (by Dan Simmons by the way) fascinating books! You pretty much can't go wrong with anything by Simmons. Endymion and Rise of Endymion are even better than the Hyperion books. It definitely is helpful if you read the Hyperion books before Endymion though. He also has a couple of my favorite horror books as well, Carrion Comfort and Song of Kali.

A matter of time by Glen Cook,

It's more about the characters than any science stuff. If you like his style, give it a go.

You may like Timeline by Michael Crichton. It's definitely not his best book, but I really enjoyed it. If you're interested in 14th century France or the 100 Years War, you'll probably enjoy it.

“No Enemy But time” by Michael Bishop
- Is a challenging and highly original novel exploring the nature and origins of mankind.
“Bid Time Return “by Richard Matheson
-Is a time travel romance.
These two are my favorite time travel books. You will definitely find this interesting. And now I’m currently reading “Blackout” by Connie Willis .

A Christmas Carol is probably the first in the genre. ;-) Okay, the REAL first in the genre is of course The Time Machine by H.G. Wells. A bit primitive in today's standards, but a good read. The End of Eternity by Asimov is my favorite, and the only book ever to introduce the idea of trading goods between different times.
