Default Suggest me some books!

I read a lot but im at a loss of what to read next. I dont have as much time with dental school being as rediculously time consuming as it is, but i still avg a book every week or 2. Ive read a lot of books so chances are ive read yours but still....throw em out there. Im down for anything, fiction to non fiction, essays, short stories, poetry....I just want to compile a big list of stuff to read as im out of suggestions.

Most recent books ive read:
Less than zero
american psycho
high fidelity
House of god
kite runner

some of my favorite books:
The great gatsby
The picture of dorian gray
Labrynths-borges
the man who was thursday-chesterton
Ender's Game
Starship Troopers
The rules of attraction
cats cradle
Catch 22
The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy

Fire away.

The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. If you like that, the Blind Watchmaker by same.

Not only are they illuminating and interesting books, you'll easily pwn any christian fundamentalists who ridicule evolution + "intelligent design" tards you encounter.
