The Fountainhead
by Ayn Rand

This beautiful book is perfect for the library of any full blown capitalist. The novel follows Howard Roark, an architect with a style all his own. See how he refuses to allow "The Man" to crush his will and determination.

by Ayn Rand

This book is still my favorite of all her books. The science fiction feel of the novel allows me to step out of our own society and explore the dangers of "we."

Atlas Shrugged
by Ayn Rand

The book that sent my psyche over the edge may be less damaging for you (especially if you're over 15 years of age). Follow the adventures of Hank Rearden, Dagny Taggart, and the elusive John Galt. Don't forget your dollar sign cigarettes.

The Complete Short Stories (The Finca Vigia Edition)
by Ernest Hemingway

I'm recommending this collection for one story only: A Clean, Well-Lighted Place. This story describes a bar keep's willingness to keep his bar open longer for a lonely old man. How I wish for a spot like that sometimes.

Dave Barry Is from Mars and Venus
by Dave Barry

With a title clearly stolen from the popular love-help book, one would think that this book was a parody of the John Gray series, but they have nothing in common. Enjoy the fun anyway.

Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need
by Dave Barry

This summer, travel the Dave Barry way. Even better, buy it to read on the plane, and you'll suddenly notice irritating things that you never noticed before.

Dave Barry Slept Here
by Dave Barry

Dave won a Pulitzer with this book. If you can only afford to buy one of his many books, this is it.

Dave Barry Turns 50
by Dave Barry

Another treatise on getting old, now from the perspective of aging baby boomers. Not just a collection of his newspaper columns, but a walk through the innocence and nostalgia of the baby boomers.

The Bible According to Mark Twain
by Mark Twain, Howard G. Baetzhold (Editor), Joseph B. McCullough (Editor)

"Irreverent Writings on Eden, Heaven, and the Flood by America's Master Satirist" Included are diaries of Adam and Eve, speculations about Heaven and Letters From Earth. Underneath the humor, you can see Mark Twain's view of the relationship between God and Man.

Getting Even
by Woody Allen

A collection of Woody Allen's magazine writings of the late 60's. A classic with many quotable lines.
