No. of Recommendations: 3

1. Ulysses by James Joyce, because it is the truest and most universal book of life
2. Social Systems (non-fiction) by Niklas Luhmann: food for thought without end
3. Thomas Pynchon's “Gravity's Rainbow” to get lost in its complexity
4. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (for substantiation visit “Shakespeare's Portfolio”)
5. D.H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover, because its main theme is passion
6. Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time to get a glimpse of the universe
7. Margaret Atwood: The Handmaid's Tale, because of the dark and impressive story
8. Joseph Conrad: Heart of Darkness, because it attempts to find meaning within ourselves and because of the dense atmosphere
9. Tex Rubinowitz' Cartoons: And For People Who Can't Read At All, the Cigarette is Cancelled - to entertain me during blue moods and because it was a present of someone very dear to me
10. Don DeLillo's Underworld because I've only started it recently and it sounds interesting.
