Oh yeah. As for Augustus, historical biographies aren't really my thing, I don't think, but I've already ordered Butcher's Crossing from my local library, and I'm planning a Western double bill with Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian :)

Based on the mentions from you guys, I'll bump these to the top of my reading list:

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
If on a Winter's Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino

Hopefully I'll also soon get to American Gods, A Wrinkle in Time, Foundation and Empire, The Gods Themselves, The Day of the Triffids and all the other recommendations  8)
