Great books to read

I’m going to get back into reading but it’s been a long time. Any one got a good list of books to read? Any genre will do.

Eating the Dinosaur
Sex, Drugs, and Coco Puffs

Both of these books are by Chuck Klosterman. They are mostly a collection of essays about various topics in pop culture and not everything in either of the books will peak your interest. Very thought provoking books.

To be perfectly honest, and I await the hate mail, but a book I would recommend to anyone, I mean anyone, especially a neophyte in the art of thinking about thinking, is “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values” , by Robert Pirsig.
