The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon.  I am ashamed it's taken me this long to get to it; it's been on my shelf for a solid four years now.

Read The Kite Runner in one day - I enjoyed it, but it was profoundly depressing.

Does nobody else ever read for pleasure? I reckon about 80% of the books in here are academic, intellectual, or technical.
