Those books dealing with space travel, exploration, colonization, etc.(Also anything with aliens is allowed either on our world or theirs.)
(Think Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles or Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy.)

Fly Me To the Moon: Perfect for newbies just beginning to explore science fiction OR for those with sci-fi lovers with busy schedules. Read ONE book.

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Spaceman: Read two to three qualifying books. (Or if you like substitute a movie for one of the books.)

Bang, bang, shoot em' up, destiny
Bang, bang, shoot em' up to the moon
Bang, bang, shoot em' up one, two, three

Starman: Read four to six qualifying books. (Again, substitute a movie or two is fine. Especially if you'd like to compare the movie version to the book!)

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds

Space Oddity: Perfect for those that can't get enough sci-fi! Read seven or more qualifying books!
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
