The coldest winter ever was a great read. Truman Capote-In cold blood, touched me to the core because he actually went and interviewed one of the indviduals that murdered the clutter family and from reading the book anf from many people close to Capote he actually started to have feelings for this murderer. Also Awakening by Diane wilson. Finally but not least Randy Pausch-The last lecture(RIP) what an amazing book and amazing individual! If you ever felt like you wanted to give up and you wanted to accomplish something in life and haven't this will give you the fire to continue. I love alot James Patterson books.There are sooooo many other books but for now these are just a fraction of them.
