Care to Share Your Holiday Reading List?

Anyone want to suggest some titles I should add to my reading list? I am eyeing these currently–will probably skim whatever I can get my hands on.

Some of these are available on Google Books. And you can download files from Google Books using this tool (NOT A HACK).

The categories are problematic. Obviously, most of the titles don’t ‘fit’ into one area only, but it’s to help the non-native speakers of English who access this blog.
