    Man's Search for Meaning is a 1946 book by Viktor Frankl chronicling his experiences as a concentration camp inmate and describing his psychotherapeutic method of finding a reason to live. According to Frankl, the book intends to answer the question "How was everyday life in a concentration camp reflected in the mind of the average prisoner?"

    Heavier than Heaven by Charles Cross

    This is the first in-depth biography of the troubled genius Kurt Cobain. Based on exclusive access to Cobains unpublished diaries, more than 400 interviews, four years of research, and a wealth of documentation, Heavier Than Heaven traces Cobains life from his early days in a double-wide trailer outside of Aberdeen, Washington, to his rise to fame, fortune, and the adulation of a generation.

    Roma- Steven Saylor

    Saylor writes historical novels and has appeared on the History Channel as an expert on Roman life and politics. This book tells the story of Rome from it's humble start as a campsite on a trade route crossroads to the city that was the home of emperors and spawned an empire that ruled the known world. It covers a millennium and follows different characters and generations of Romans. An epic book in scope and time, but Saylor really does a good job breathing life into and fleshing out history. And he stays true to the real history of Rome as far as people and events (I looked some of it up in history books) but makes it entertaining. Reading this gives you a good history and feel of what Rome was like at its start and during the days of Roman Kings and the rise of the Republic. (It ends with Julius Caesar getting wacked and Augustus becoming Emperor). A good read, I really enjoyed it.

    And BTW, I don't know if it was just me but I actually thought like a Roman while reading it. For example: at work the other day someone at work did a weasely thing and my first thought was to either poison them or plunge a dagger into their chest.

    Just finished Stephen King's 11/22/63. Great read. Both a typical and not a typical King book at the same time. Can recommend you to read it.

    I really liked this one. An interesting view on how randomness affects one life and delves into probability math, statistics, and several of the key historical figures responsible for such concepts.

    The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodinow





    I peeked at this and got hooked and read it all (it's not too long)!! :D

    The Birds by Camille Paglia



    It's a really interesting and informative book on, well, The Birds. Definitely recommended for fans. I know what movie I'll be watching again soon.
