Definitely The Art of War by Sun Tzu.  Some people don't consider it a book so much as a written work on military strategy and tactics, but I discovered it in book form so that's my it's my favorite book.  Other works are The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli, Brewing For Dummies, The Sound of the Beast by Ian Christe, and the Harry Potter series(I'm a nerd for that, okay!).  I like alot of books, but these are just to name a few.
Have you ever read The Art of War by Niccolo Machiavelli?  Not as well known as his more popular The Prince, but still an interesting treatise on warfare during Machiavelli's time in the Italian areas of Europe.

"The Demon Haunted World" by Carl Sagan is probably the most useful non-fiction I've ever read. Its an excellent guide to critical and scientific thinking, and well worth a read. Its also a very easy read, and very entertaining. The account of crop circles is especially amusing.

I think that Naturism is really about learning from Nature, personal Nature, other peoples Natures, lifestyle Natures, and of course, Nature it's self. :) ^^ <3

Catcher in the Rye is far from an emo thing.... I first read the novel when I was in my early teens, then again in my early twenties, mid twenties and so on.... thus far I continue to see new things in Holden's story.

For me this is a test of a truly remarkable piece of writing, that the story is a reflection of your self, that changes and evolves with you... 

I recommend you read it again and again in your life, I know I will.

Great Gatsby is also incredible.

I was at dinner with a friend last night and we were discussing this very topic. I cannot go Past John Fowels "the Magus" following Nicolas through his psychological torture and the game playing of Conchis I could almost find or loose myself in Nicolas' character.

I have only read one of the two novels of the same from Fowels as he rewrote it after the original publication.

A truly amazing and engaging read. Another I will revisit many times in my life.

my absolute favorite book is "Der Schwarm" (The swarm) from "Frank Schätzing". I don't if it is that popular in other countries but it is in Germany. They are planning a movie which will be 4h minimum... :D

The Foxfire series is pretty amazing, if you're interested in Appalachian culture.

For the moment "The Angel's game" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
I bought a copy from a little stand in Helsinki railwaystation and I read it to the end before I was in hometown. It was so good.

If you haven't already, pick up "Shadow of the winf" by the same author; it's even better !
And then you've got "Prisoner of heaven", which reunites characters from both books to bring the trilogy to a close:)

I have them both and I love them both, but "the Angel's game" is closer to my heart somehow. Maybe because its the first one that defines the whole setting and the limits. The supernatural elements, when the Devil asks the writer to write a book for him. It was just ... I don't have the words. The second one was good too, strong emotions without the supernatural. It was and is a very good book.

I have yet to read the third, I saw it at display in bookstore, but I didn't dare to buy it yet. Lately money has been an issue. :(
