Here are some books I recommend you read:

1) Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell
Blink is one of the most interesting nonfiction books I have read in a long time.
It deals with a variety of topics, but the central theme is that your subconscious split-second decision-making processes may make better decisions than if you'd thought for a long time about something and made a choice after gathering lots of info.  Also, it makes the point that your subconscious plays a larger part than most people think in how they act and think.  

Note: there is a little "strong language," mainly partly because the book quotes actual statements and situations word-for-word, so in case that might deter you from reading it, I just thought I'd put a warning.   

2) The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible, by Ken Schoolland
This book presents principles of a free market economy as well as liberty in general and puts it in an easy-to-read story format.  The story is fairly interesting, and even more so when you see what it's talking about.  

3) Schott's Original Miscellany, by Ben Schott
This is a book of facts and knowledge that you might never use, but some of the things in it are useful.
Some are simply interesting, so if you like fact books, this is a good one to check out. 

This is another post that I am finishing right now and I'm not going to have a "to be continued" note at the bottom.
