Question #2:

What books should I read this summer? Please include title and author (and if you are feeling ambitious, link to amazon's listing) of any books suggested. I'm open to any genre if it is a GOOD BOOK. :-)

And nothing over 900 pages in one volume. My wrists can't take it. :-P

* Douglas Adams' Starship Titanic by Terry Jones

There's a seriously kickass fantasy series called "A Song of Ice and Fire", written by George R.R. Martin. Start with A Game of Thrones

If you haven't read Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game, do so now.

Guns, Germs, and Steel(Jared Diamond) is an interesting bit of nonfiction that looks at why Western society attained its dominant position in the world.

While we're on nonfiction, The Selfish Gene(Richard Dawkins) and The Meme Machine(Susan Blackmore) are both utterly fascinating.

And if you're looking for some manga, Pet Shop of Horrors is pretty cool.
