    1984 is a fantastic read as it is a telling novel of the ills of excessive technology - a topic increasingly relevant at this point.

      I agree society  is becoming so dependent on technology its scary.

    Favorite best books are
    The dark tower wizards and glass because it's pretty out there. Like journeying to another world. I read anything Chuck Palahniuk  (author of fight club) because his writing style is so different. I'm currently reading a book called Year zero : a novel. It's like a modern day hitchhikers guide type book with humor. Plus the writing is so witty. I can go on and on on good books.

    Aside from the Bible, I've read many novels in any genre. What I liked the most is the Slammed by Colleen Hoover (but I like all of her eight novels), it is rare to express yourself in this today generation by means of writing and performing poems.

    Identifying the Culprit Assessing Eyewitness Identification  by NAS. It is all about justice. It examines the accuracy of cases that rely mainly on the evidence from eye witnesses.

      Hmm, reminds me of an old film called 12 Angry Men.

    Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. It's funny, tragic, intelligent, moving, and it explains a lot about war. I've read it 7 -8 times and it never ceases to enlighten me.

    "Team of Rivals" by MS Goodwin and Hugo's "The Count of Monte Cristo" - I love good history and love long exciting narratives. I rarely read books twice but I read both twice. I have a long list of favorite books but I will stop at these!

    Wool (the series) from Hugh Howey - really interesting look at what we could possibly be doing to ourselves in the future if not careful as it focuses on rebuilding after a nuclear type holocaust occurance.

    I just typed out an explanation of the book - but it gives sooooo much away if I explained what was happening in the book/s! I still think about the lesson it was trying to convey.

    I have my own set of favorite books. But speaking in particular, I like the modern works in literature more. Best examples are Things fall apart by Chinua Achebe, The Shadow Lines by Amitav Ghosh, Waiting for Godot(drama) by Samuel Beckett. The list would go on but works like these which makes a reader think and not just enjoy are my cup of tea.

    Wall Street Money Machine by Wade Cook.
    Wade takes some good ideas and blows them out of proportion. The truth is he has great ideas.

    The Black Hills by Rod Thompson.  I love western dramas and this one is jam packed with action adventure.
