The Book of Basketball by Bill Simmons! Great book, very funny.
Into the Wild
Moneyball was an incredible LISTEN, the book on CD was VERY well done, actually would sit in my driveway and listen to it when I got home.
Most recent read I'd suggest is the The Shack, definitely hits your cores, not in a P90X way.
Looks like I'm on the same page as a number of others here. Some of the books I've read and enjoyed over the last few months:
Watership Down - Just always liked it and probably read it once every couple years
Pillars of the Earth - Reread it because of the new TV mini series
The Passage - Was told it was good, so I read it. A little disappointed at the end, but my understanding is that this is book 1 of 3 to come.
For those that liked Pillars of the Earth, he wrote a sequel a few years back called World Without End. It's set a few hundred years after Pillars of the Earth, but with callbacks to it. Similar story, just a new set of characters.
I liked Pillars of the Earth better, but wasn't disappointed in World Without End.
Just read "The Cider House Rules" (John Irving) and "A Dirty Job: A Novel" (Christopher Moore)--like both of these authors and am slowly reading through everything they have written. Love, love, love Irving--great characters, very, very good writer. Moore is more comedy and lightweight reading, but I always enjoy his books.
Doing the same w/ Cormac McCarthy--the Border Trilogy is next. Would recommend Tom Robbins as well.
...I could just keep going. So many good books out there.
I read this about a year ago, but also highly recommend "I Am Legend". The original, not the one based on the movie based on the book. It's pretty much nothing like the movie. It's a short novel, but I couldn't put it down.
I'm also looking for "Behind the Dolphin Smile" by Richard O'Barry. He's the trainer of Flipper and was the man behind the documentary "The Cove". It's out of print though, and the only thing Amazon has is 41 bucks minimum. I'm currently scouring used book stores everywhere for it, so if anyone happens to know a cheap place to find it, please let me know. I'm even considering a cheap finders fee at this point.
Old Man's War by John Scalzi (good sci-fi written in the vein of Heinlein)
