    Default

    The Elegant Universe [Briane Greene]
    A Brief History of Time [Stephen Hawking]
    The Mote in God's Eye [Niven + Pournelle]
    The Gripping Hand [Niven + Pournelle]

    I've never liked Monk. I'll have to check out Physics of the Impossible, I see Kaku on history channel all the time and have always been interested.

    Default I just remembered!

    I almost forgot:-
    The Dark Is Rising Sequence, by Susan Cooper. They made it into a movie and absolutely ruined it! They're really amazing and unique.
