    Good thread. I recently read B.J. Novak's new book and it was nothing short of fantastic. Went through the entire thing in two nights. Tons of humor that had me literally laughing out loud, but within that humor there's a lot of deeper thinking.

    I listened to the Amazon preview, though it didn't finish the story! So I will probably be getting it. Thanks for that one.

    Just finished reading "Problem Solving 101".

    Very straight forward book but still enjoyed it nonetheless.

    I'm not much of a book reader and have actually only read 1 book in my life.
    A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer. Pretty sick story and worth reading.

    My favourite book(s) are the Liveship Traders trilogy:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liveship_Traders_Trilogy

    And second to that, the Assassins Apprentice:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassin's_Apprentice

    If you like the fantasy genre then I would recommend reading both of those, I literally couldnt put them down when I read them.

    Life of Pi is another great book if you like fantasy/adventure:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_of_Pi

    If you like philosophy, then Walden is another great book which has really stayed with me:

    Delivering Happiness. Great read, especially for those who are looking to get into a serious ecommerce venture. :)

    I can recommend anything by Bernard Cornwall, historical escapism at its best, absolutely enthralling, I hate reading a current series because I end up having to wait for him to write the next installation.

    Start with Sharpe and there will be enough to keep you going for a long time.

    Though the present series is probably my favourite iirc it's called "the warlord chronicles"
