This thread needs to be revived. I'm just getting into Kurt Vonnegut's novels due to this thread.

Don't skip The Windup Girl. You won't be disappointed. The pace isn't all that quick, but it starts off interesting and keeps you until the end. It's one of my favorite Science Fiction novels.

I'm not sure why, but post-globalisation type worlds always entertain me. You get to see different events unfold from the eyes and views of all sorts of different characters. Definitely check it out.

I have a monster 10.5 hr flight to Egypt coming up, I need a few book recs.

Something not too hard to read and entertaining, but still good and not just strictly a page turner with little depth.

Into Thin Air - Jon Krakauer

A fantastic read about the 1996 Mt. Everest disaster. First-hand storytelling about what happened and also an psychoanalysis of what makes a man want to climb into the "Death Zone" at 20,000+ feet.


Freakonomics & Superfreakonomics - Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner

Economical analysis of society, often to a contrary counterpoint to accepted common wisdom. What do prostitudes have in common with department store Santa Clauses'? Did legalized Abortion end the crime wave? Why are real estate agents like the KKK? Etc.

Einstein: His Life and Universe - Walter Isaacson

While it does touch on his revolutionary science, this narrative masterpiece really brings this once in a lifetime figure to life. A vivid portrayal of the 20th century's most famous and influential man.

If anyone's looking for something easy and nonfiction to read, both I Only Roast The Ones I Love by Jeffrey Ross and Official Book Club Selection by Kathy Griffin are pretty hilarious.

Usually a fan of sci fi and whatnot, but these are solid in my opinion for a change of pace.

Sports autobiography's from decently intelligent people are my favorite books to read. Especially if you're a fan of tennis, James Blake, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi's autobiographies are all good. Tedi Bruschi's autobiography is good as well.

I'm not sure why, but post-globalisation type worlds always entertain me. You get to see different events unfold from the eyes and views of all sorts of different characters. Definitely check it out.
This is what I've heard from everyone. Know I got a Borders giftcard coming up for Christmas. I'll be sure to pick this one up now.

I place the NFL, competitive eating, and paint drying ahead of the likes of the NBA (uhh Bucks fan)...Yet I love Bill Simmons writing so much, anything written by him is solid.

Best players of all time, how to build a franchise, testicle references, and pop culture, holy crap is the book funny. It's actually a good book to put next to the toilet and pick up for 20 minutes every day while your doing your business. If you liked his first one, you'll like it. And I hate the Red Sox.
