books? ha, i own over 5,000.... no kidding.
this is soooooo personal and subjective as to what you would like.... but try the following...
fantasy, adventure - hard to beat "The Wheel of Time" series, author pen name is rober jordan.
science fiction - "ender's game" is a true classic.
non-fiction, so subjective here - for something completely different try some of these....
"an ordinary person's guide to empire" by arundhati roy.
"blowback" by chalmers johnson.
"rise to globalism" by stephen ambrose.
fiction, even more subjective. for books that are clearly "different" try...
anything by kurt vonnegut...he is my favorite author.
"glass bead game" by herman hess.
"one hundred years of solitude" by garcia marquez. (dang! cant put accent marks!)
"salt" by earl lovelace.
"the guest" by hwang sok-yong.
a wide range of books for a wide range of tastes. enjoy.
geez, this is not even close to
