War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. No, I'm not kidding. I'm on book 5 now and I find it to be very enjoyable stuff to read so far. It's really fascinating and I can identified with some of the people, which is remarkable.
Right on! You're a braver man than I.
I am currently reading "Language in Thought and Action": 2nd Edition (Edition really does matter with this book, the guy changes a lot of stuff between the editions. I believe I got the best one, but I may need to check out the 1st edition anyways.)
It's a book on General Semantics which is a really intriguing discipline that had it's heyday in the 1940s and has sadly since died off. A lot of the stuff in the book I've already thought about, but this book brings more implications to the table, takes thoughts I had further to new and interesting conclusions, and, in doing so, helps me better articulate my previous thoughts on these matters in a more overarching way.
