    "Invisible Monsters" by Chuck Palahniuk
    "Republic" by Plato
    "Collapse" by Jared Diamond
    "Shadows of War" by Carolyn Nordstrom
    "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand
    "The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order" by Samuel Huntington
    "Merchant of Death" by Farah Braun
    "Tower of Babel" by Dore Gold
    "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" by Rajiv Chandrasekaran

    Oof?
    Hm.
    On my Book Shelf at the moment...

    Michael Chrichton - Jurassic Park
    Michael Chrichton - Congo
    Ben Elton - GridLock
    Ben Elton - Chart Throb
    Ben Elton - High Society

    Got all the Terry Pratchett books, not about to list them all...
    Generally, I tend to prefer either satirical books...or books such as Jurassic Park. (Although that's the whole...Dinosaur Fetish)

    Been reading quite a few books such as Templar Legacy and more centered around that subject too.
