mmm, i have to think....
R.K. Rowling - Harry Potter (i am always three years behind on everybody)
J. Cale - What's Welsh for Zen? (autobiography)
P. Roth - ???
James Joyce - Dubliners
?? - An introduction to the Brain (scientific book about neuroscience, good stuff, I can really recommend this)
And I like books/articles about culture theory and cultural behavior, and things like that.
