Today's Slate has a list of various books that famous people loved in college. Here's a sample:
"Mark Bowden, national correspondent, the Atlantic - The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, which was not part of any course; in fact, I no longer recall how or why I picked it up, but to me it was incendiary. I was an English major, so I was reading a lot, but this was something entirely new and different. Here was a writer clearly having fun … no, the time of his life, with words, ideas, observation, storytelling. I was already interested in writing, but Wolfe made me crazy about writing. "
A couple of these look books look really interesting. I definitely want to pick-up Personal Knowledge and Fear of Flying.
Oh, and Mark Cuban apparently loved The Fountainhead. There's a shocker.
