Suggest an interesting book club book

My book club is looking for some book recommendations. We’re hoping to find books that will be a bit out of our comfort zone, but will still be engaging. In particular, we’d like to try something outside of the literary fiction or historical fiction genres. Sci-fi, fantasy, mystery or even a short story collection would be welcome. We like good writing, but we love ideas and themes that lead to interesting discussions even more. [more inside]

Best English translation of the Mahabharata?

Please tell me, what is the best English translation of the Mahabharata? I'm not particularly concerned that it be a verse translation. I would prefer something that's available in electronic form (for reading on my Nook). Something that's public domain, and therefore available on Google books, even better. But these are preferences, not hard requirements. I'm more concerned with reliability of the translation. [more inside]

Help me find an iPhone or book holder to read in bed

My wife and I love to read books in bed, just before going to sleep. I usually use my iPhone 4 Kindle app. Lately, however, the biomechanics of semi sitting up in bed have been taking there toll on my already somewhat debilitated spine (mild degeneration). I would like to be able to lie flat and read by staring straight up (or at least give this a try). Unless you've tried it, you may not know that simply holding the device or book overhead with your arms simply doesn't work. Some kind of holder is needed. I am looking for anyone's suggestions on what might work, perhaps those who are, or know someone who is, quadriplegic, or otherwise disabled might have some good ideas.I'm not so much looking for something I could kludge together, but more interested in something that is already available; I'm not firm on this, however. All suggestions are welcome, though!

The Art of War

What books have helped you succeed and grow professionally? Although recommendations like Getting Things Done or How To Win Friends And Influence People would be great, I would also like to hear about fiction or non-business books that you have read that have positively impacted your career. I am familiar with this thread about particular fields. I am more interested in books that have helped you generally in your career, regarding topics as diverse as work ethic, courage, communication, organization, leadership, relationships, work-life balance, etc. If the Men's Style Manual has impacted your career, bring it on!

pdf wtf imho

I want to read pdfs on my iphone, but unless the pdf was created with larger than normal text, it's generally too small to read. They don't use the available space efficiently and there is often large margins that could have been used to enlarge the font. Here are some shots of what I'm talking about. I've read that epub is the format I am looking for but haven't been able to find my pdfs as epubs (the books I get are mostly textbooks or from small authors that sell their books on their own sites (like Smashing Magazine), not through e\retailers who may have multiple formats), and converting via online services or desktop apps like Calibre have not been successful, especially for large documents...

Reading material for a good 8-year-old reader who resists chapter books

My almost-8-year-old daughter is a strong reader at the word/sentence level, tested to have reading comprehension of a 12-year-old and with great recall of material she's read, but I can't get her into chapter books. Fundamentally, I think she's intimidated by all that unbroken text, and her attention falters. So what are some kids' books that require chapter-book levels of reading & comprehension but have illustrations on essentially every page? [more inside]

Why Can't Johnny Read?

I don't read much anymore, and I don't like it. I used to read a lot (roughly a book a week), but my reading for pleasure has dropped at least 75% in the last dozen years. What have I replaced it with? Video games (large and small) and the internet; both of which give me fizzy short-term satisfaction, but with far less long term. Help me get my respectable hobby back.
