I think we've had a few threads like this in the past, but I'm always interested to kind of pick brains and possibly pick up new material.

At present I'm 4 books into Robert Fitzgerald's translation of "The Iliad" and am pleasantly surprised at the relatively easy nature of the reading.

Just recently finished "The Book of Five Rings" and "Breaks of the Game" both of which I found enjoyable.
