Apropos of nothing, here is my current top ten list of books. They are in no particular order, and I've mixed genres, and I'm too lazy to provide links, i.e., google is your friend. The list works like this: if a book stays on the current top ten for an inordinate period, it is then shifted to the all-time top ten (thereby bumping something else off).

1. The Scar, by China Mieville
2. Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson
3. Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell
4. The Book, by Alan Watts
5. The Wind-up Bird Chronicles, by Haruki Murakami
6. The Book of Saladin, by Tariq Ali
7. The Book of Illusions, by Paul Auster
8. After the Quake, by Haruki Murakami
9. Celtika by Robert Holdstock
10. Importance of Living, by Lin Yutang
