Old Book, New Book? #3

Just finished Elves of the Cintra, and yes, it didn't take too long to power through it. Once I got up to speed with the first book in the trilogy, it was easy to just cruise through this second book, because it was basically just more chapters of the same story, as I mentioned.

The sad part, of course, is that the final book in the trilogy won't be out until this fall, so I didn't wait quite long enough to start reading these books. So I guess I'm going to have to find a new book to read. I'm leaning toward Godel, Escher, Bach, because its a book I've heard mentioned by some programmers and professors that I've admired and I've meant to check it out for a while. I don't know if the library is open today with it being a holiday and all, so maybe I'll have to find something else to do with the rest of my President's day.

I suggest some non-fiction :)

Godel, Escher, Bach is non-fiction. :) But I'm open to some other suggestions.

Depends on your interests, but not going to hard core: Freakonomics, The Tipping Point, a biography of one of the Founders (I can recommend the right one for each founder--just ask), Devil in the White City, and others. We can e-mail about it if you'd like :)
