EAGLE IN THE SNOW by Wallace Breem
and
AMERICAN GODS by Neil Gaiman

I got both of those for Christmas. I'm on EAGLE, and it's not too bad so far. Very detailed as far as military strategy goes. I get the feeling reading this that the film GLADIATOR got many of it's cues from this book.

Movie books excluded (I buy a lot of screenwriting and filmmaking stuff), then it'd be a trio ordered off Amazon:

THE SIXTEENTH ROUND, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter
THE MERRY ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, Howard Pyle
And Stephen Knight's ROBIN HOOD anthology

NEVERWHERE by Neil Gaiman.

If there's anyone out there that hasn't read this or AMERICAN GODS by Gaiman, you are really missing out. Gaiman is a modern day fantasy genius.

30 days of night.... Looking forward to some fun in the alaskian sun.... Which I'm obviously not going to get because the story is about a time when the sun doesn't come up in Alaska, but I digress.

I'm taking two English courses in university, so I had to buy a few books for them. The ones I had to buy that aren't just textbooks are:

Microserfs by Douglas Coupland
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
Blankets by Craig Thompson
The Martyrology 1&2 by B.P. Nichol
Angels In America by Tony Kushner
Drawing Down the Moon: Witches, Druids, Goddess-Worshippers, and Other Pagans in America Today by Margot Adler

And for my own enjoyment:

Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis (and I got it at a reading so it's autographed )
