hmmm... i'm not sure. i just finished a book called "the book thief", before that was "Kafka on the Shore", before that "Midnight Children" and before that "what the dog saw". i've never been really attracted to a specific genre. but i'm pretty sure i'm not a fan of Horror/suspense/or thrillers

Just skim through this thread. There are tons of great reads listed in here.

Illusions by Richard Bach is one of my personal favorites if you haven't read it.

Try out some Alan Watts, this isn't a book but something I found very interesting. He has a very sprawling style but touches repeatedly on the idea of consciousness
