    Excellent read! I cannot get enough of Umberto Eco. The man was brilliant, both in his fiction and non.

    This will actually be my first, despite having both Foucault's Pendulum and Baudolino sitting around my house (Haha.) But it's a good read so far and a great bridge from my current interest in the arts/literature on one hand and wanting to explore philosophy on the other.

    Julius Caesar by Shakespeare; for whatever reason this is, so far, turning out to be the first play of his I'm thoroughly enjoying in quite awhile. As good as even Lear was just before this.

    The Last Beginning by Lauren James, its about time-travelling lesbians and the mum of one of the lesbians is bisexual. The story is actually really great as well!

    The Why Are You Here Cafe: A New Way of Finding Meaning in Your Life and Your Work by John Strelecky.
    I really like his books. They're not like novels "only" for reading, they also help to think about life.

    Naslouchač (The Listener) by Petra Stehlíková, czech sci-fi book, very cool. It's about a little girl pretending to be a boy in post apocalyptic world.

    Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio. Three tales in so far and already enjoying it more than I would've imagined. :slight_smile:
