The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy merges traditional science fiction with a comedic story and crazy characters and scenarios. This modern science-fiction novel by Douglas Adams is a must-read for anyone who considers themself a geek. This geek book recommendation is featured in contributor Nicole Bremer Nash's TechRepublic article "A required reading list for geeks."
Me Talk Pretty One Day - David Sedaris One of my most absolute favorite books. It was introduced to me in my freshman year of high school and it completely changed my way of thinking when it came to fiction and non-fiction as well as news writing. Thankful to my English teach for having us listen to Sedaris read "The Youth in Asia."
