Books: Anything Dan Brown, or an awesome sci-fi novel that makes
you go "What. The. Fuck.", much like 1984, Animal House, Brave New
World, etc. I also have read Cosmos by Carl Sagan, and The Greatest
Show On Earth by Richard Dawkins. Some graphic novels, like Scott
Pilgrim, and Amory Wars. I'm also really into this crazy awesome
web-comic, perhaps you've heard of Homestuck?
