if you like snow its not boring, has some gnarly pictures, and might actually give you knowledge to save your own life or someone else's.

another good one is Snow Sense: a Guide to Evaluating Snow Avalanche Hazard by Jill Fredston and Doug Fesler.

Psi-Man Some of you may have never been on the ocean, but "In the heart of the Sea" is a pretty good book if you are into fiction of this nature.

West Baden Iron It's not the easiest read but probably my favorite book is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig.

I also recently read a novel on the girl who got burnt by the napalm bombing, and thoroughly enjoyed that as well. Suggestions?
3 of the better books I've read in this genre are Into Thin Air, Into the Wild, both by John Krakauer and Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.
