Help...

I am in the process of finding some new books to read. Lately (and I mean the past two years or so) I have been reading a lot of political, ecological, religious (atheism), zoological, and general scientific books and essays. I haven't gone out of these themes since Heather mailed me several books right after my surgery.
So I have a request for each one of you.

Please give me some recommendations.
Fiction, non-fiction, anything. Let's say your top two recommended reads from each. That way I can get my hands on something outside of my current (and long lasting) trend.
I am on the verge of finishing "Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries" by Naomi Wolf. I need a list of things to purchase once finished.

HELP!!

The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. Seriously, one of the best books I've read in ages.
yes yes yes i loved that book sooooooooo much!
I don't know if you've ever read "Running with Scissors" by Augusten Burroughs, but it is such an amazing book.

You should get a goodreads account. Then we can be book friends (along with millions of other people if you want) and you can see all the books I've ever read. www.goodreads.com
Yes! I love that book, in fact, I have read all of his books as they are published. I love his writing. If you liked Running With Scissors, you should read Magical Thinking. It is pretty great, too.
I am currently reading Dry and I will definitely check out Magical Thinking.
