It was recently my b-day (21st - yay!) so I recieved a ton of books. I have a pile of about ten books to work through over the summer. I usually read a book anywhere, anytime (though never in the bathroom).

I have several business books (A Brand New World by Scott Bedbury, Out of Control by Kevin Kelly, Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits by Philip Fisher, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Edwin Lefevre, and some others). I have one sci-fi book - Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes. Finally have four Mickey Spillane novels (The Killing Man, Black Alley, The Snake, and The Girl Hunters) to go with my two collections of his work.

My tastes tend to follow similar patterns - about half business books, and half sci-fi or classic fiction (Spillane or classic golden age sci-fi).
