Recently read - When Breath Becomes Air. What an awesome read for those of us who give it all for corporate ladder without giving any thought to the meanings of life and our mortality. Written by a doctor who was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Read the Beach while traveling and it might change your life. It's a backpacking book passed on from one nomad to the next. Brett Easton Ellis is good if you're down to get a little disturbed. Glamorama is my fave.
