Thread: Book Recomondations

  1. #1

    Book Recomondations

    It seems like a lot of us like to read, and I am thinking a thread where we give recommendations would be cool.

    Right now I just started reading Fahrenheit 451.

    From the last couple of months, these are some that will stick with me for a while:

    The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann
    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
    Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee

    and Boys in the Boat by Daniel Brown (I'm a rower and it's required reading)

    Currently listening to "Create your Own Economy" By Tyler Coween on Audiobook. It's pretty good, and not at all what I expected. Mostly about what we can learn from Autistic people, and the way their minds process information.

    I will check that out sounds interesting.

    I got all the way through a Social Security information book and man was that a grinder.

    I will try to think if I have any business books you should check out.

    I am thinking about getting Frankenstein since it was recommended twice.

    I recently went to a book store and picked up, "Civil Disobedience and Other Essays" by Henry David Thoreau, it was 2 bucks so it will be worth it.

    My list right now besides previously mentioned is,

    1984
    The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe
    Watchmen
    Catch 22

    I really enjoyed both 1984 and Catch 22

    The Psychopath Test was a fun read, and makes you wonder about every person you ever meet
    The Road -- if you thought the movie was good, read this. If you haven't seen the movie, even better.
    Neuromancer (any other book by William Gibson is a safe bet)
    Slaughterhouse 5 (Any Kurt Vonnegut is also usually good)
    The Gutenberg Galaxy
    Lancaster and York: The War of the Roses (any Alison Weir is good if you like medieval history)

    I'll add some more after I look at my e-reader (dont' have it with me)

    Just finished Clearing the Path to Victory by Aladar Kogler. Amazing book, and highly recommended for anyone looking to up their mental training. Good luck finding a copy though.
