suggest books!

I'm in the library, surrounded by books, which is a bit overwhelming after six years in a country where the best places to acquire books are a record store and an office supply store.

So... what should I be reading?

I can't imagine you haven't read Cat's Cradle, Dune, or Nineteen Eighty-Four, some of my favorite sci fi. But if you'd like to expand your horizons a little bit, consider Naguib Mahfouz (I loved my translation of Children of Gebelawi) or Sudeku Mehta (Maximum City is my favorite piece of non-fiction). In terms of books I learned from, Jane Jacobs' The Death and Life of Great American Cities is probably unmatched, but I don't know if you share my interest in cities.
