Quoted from pin2d:
I also have a long commute, so I listen to a lot of audiobooks and really just wanted to add some more to my list of books to read. So many great suggestions, I've got a lot of ideas now.
I try to jump back and forth between good stories and books that I will learn something or look at something from a different angle. (Some books meet both criteria.)
I'll throw out a few more:
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer (non-fiction)
Pet Semetary by Stephen King (horror)
Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill (horror)
14 by Peter Clines (Sci/Fi thriller)
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (Sci/Fi comedy)
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (Dystopian type)
Some of the Malcolm Gladwell books (non-fiction)
I think Sci Fi is well covered here....its almost endless.
I personally choose what I call Plausible Sci Fi...I grew out of wanting to read and start
a new vocabulary of names and planets and weapons.
Ive enjoyed Time Travel.
Time after Time
Time Police series, Poul Anderson.
The Gladwell choice is interesting, where you want to see something from a different angle.
Would your choices include Historical....The New stuff on Columbus, Pompeii, Turn of the century?
or more sociological, current views on ideas?
I tend to read into "different views" books quite a bit, but stay away from Aliens, Conspiracy stuff,
but thats a whole different read....
Anyone have books along Gladwells Genre I can add to my list?
