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)
If you're a fan of the classics...
Definitely the original Frankenstein^^ great recommendation
Catch 22 - Heller
Heart of Darkness - Conrad
The Count of Monte Cristo - Dumas
Brave New World - Huxley
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep - P. K. Dick
A Scanner Darkly - P. K. Dick

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 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,
The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe
Nice I will give those a look.

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)
^^^ ditto on Vonnegut (Slaughterhouse 5 was my favorite)
