    Depends on what you are in the mood for. BUt I will recommend several things:
    Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
    Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach (this is as hilarious as is it informative and disgusting)
    Jonathan Livingston Seagull (a short allegory story and easily the most important book in my library)
    Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values (the mid-section on the idea of Quality and education are especially brilliant)
    The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster (more or less a children's book but like Chronicles of Narnia and Wrinkle in Time, it's wildly inventive)
    The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande (any of his books are great, but this is easily his best)

    I recently finished the Temeraire series, by Naomi Novik, and highly recommend them. Engrossing and very enjoyable.

    I was recently overwhelmed with emotion after reading Matthew Griffin's debut novel, Hide. The novel is about two gay men who met each other after World War II and we follow their lives into the present day. Matthew is actually Dr. Griffin and he and his husband live in Louisiana teaching at a university there.
