The Letters of J.R.R.Tolkien
Christopher Tolkien & Humphrey Carpenter

Since I am a Tolkien-freak I wanted to know more about the man himself. Although the best way to learn about Tolkien is reading a biography this book also gives a good view at it. Plus I already read the biography... :D
The book is compiled of letters Tolkien sended throughout his life. Letters to his sons, to his publisher, to fans, to friends,... Very interesting book if you want to know more about the man behind Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. 8)

i've nearly finished The Universe in a Nutshell by Stephen Hawkins

if you wish to get your head around the high end of astro physics, applied mathmatics and the pioneering thoughts on a complete universal theory of everything then you should read this shit. its utterly amazing.

Siddhartha definitely gets you thinking...
i'd just start going through books on Zen, Taoism, the conscious...find what seems interesting and start reading...trial and error my friend.

Right now i'm about to begin Prentice Alvin the third in the Alvin Maker Series by Orson Scott Card...Seventh Son(first in series) left me in awe...Red Prophet (second) left me in pain, inspiration, love, hope, among a very broad scope of emotions...I cried once in Seventh Son and at least 20 times during and after reminiscing of Red Prophet...I anxiously anticipate and care for the characters...This series will quite definately be my favorite read beating out my old favorite East of Eden even.......

Highly Recommended!

Also the 4th and 5th books are called Journeyman Alvin and Heartfire

Mumonkan "Gateless Gate" and Hekiganroku "Blue Cliff Records" contain alot of zen koans. really good read, i try to read one koan a day, but its hard to put the book down.

Currently in the middle of Dan Brown - Angels and Demons, im up to the part where Langdon and Vittioria are at the first chruch, and at the moment, im fuckin shocked how stupid these two are, giving up so much information about themselves to a complete stranger, i mean...come on.. even for a Harvard Professor.

Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance is always a good book if you can get through it.

Currently reading, a biography of Karl Marx and a selection of poetry selected by Ted Hughes and Seamus Heaney, 'The rattle bag'

These are some recent reads of mine definetly worth checking out.

Beowulf - Seamus Heaney (an exciting medieval romp, exquisitely translated)

The Shipping News - Annie Proulx (Incredibly beautiful, insightful and ingenious)

Love - Toni morrison (Usual genius from Morrison, fused with pathos, paradise and poignance)
