FWIW, I'm reading George Orwell's "1984," then will be re-reading "Animal Farm." He had many other titles that are well worth reading, but I'm going back to basics here. Orwell was well ahead of his time, both in intelligence and predictions...its surreal how much of his writings (1984 in particular) have come to fruition today. He didn't prognosticate everything, but it's very eery how much he was on target decades before it actually happened.
What should I be reading next?
