A sampling of my finds from our yearly trek to the VNSA Used Book Sale:
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick -- the inspiration for Blade Runner. I had a few others of his but had never picked this one up.
The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester -- on most lists of the best sci-fi books of all time. I have not read this author yet.
Feersum Endjinn by Iain M. Banks -- Banks is probably my favorite sci-fi author. I have almost all of his books now.
The Physics of Star Trek by Lawrence M. Krauss
Wrinkles in Time: Witness to the Birth of the Universe by George Smoot
A More Perfect Heaven: How Copernicus Revolutionized the Cosmos by Dava Sobel
Packing for Mars by Mary Roach
The Poincare Conjecture by Donal O'Shea -- nerdy math stuff. I love it.
The Case for Mars: The Plan to Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must by Robert Zubrin
General Non-Fiction & History
Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson -- After reading John Adams and now reading Team of Rivals, I'm kinda hooked on political history.
Code Breaking: A History and Exploration by Rudolf Kippenhahn
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash by Elizabeth Royte
Soul Made Flesh: The Discovery of the Brain by Carl Zimmer
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” -- Jane Austen
