whats everyone reading? ill start first. narcissus and goldmund by hesse, i feel very personal with all of his books. dancing wu li masters by gary zuchav, its a book that ties zen and quantum physics together. very mind blowing. wired magazine keeps me updated. and next is godel, escher, bach an eternal golden braid which sounds scary but will be a must. i love you all btw and roxy music : D

Last book I read was "We" by Yevgeny Zamyatin. It was the inspiration for Orwell's 1984. Definitely recommended.
I'm now reading "A confederation of dunces" by John kennedy Toole. It's a comedy, but at the same time with quite a social comment. (But still funny!!)

i´m kind of a book worm, so this would be my choice...
any isaac asimov book would do if you´re looking for some light-weight but amusing reading, specially the foundation series is great. some comic books would be nice in the same lane, most vertigo edits, most frank miller´s (specially watchmen, if anyone´s read it must agree this man has A vision...), neil gaiman, kurt busiek, etc....
when looking for heavier reading i would say foucault, bakunin, bourdie and passeron or even some freire...
also read lots of art and architecture magazines, on that hand i would recommend hausser, gombrich, honisch and feierabend, most taschen´s or koneman´s publications would also be a good choice.
and that´s pretty much what i like reading, book i´m reading now is H.H. Stuckenschmidt - XXth. century´s music.
zero.
