I'm grading my last exams and finish up my own reports at the moment. With summer looming I'm looking for things to take up the free time that I get. School sucks because I only get to read like a book a week, but I'm hoping to really ramp that up along with foraging and hiking.

Anyway, I'm just looking for some interesting stuff to get into this summer. If anyone has any must reads for me - fire away.

If you haven't read The New Libertarian Manifesto or An Agorist Primer by S.E.K. III then that is what I recommend.

Already went through this one. Good stuff, but I've already read all of Godel's papers so it just came off as a little unnecessary to me. He's more personal in I Am A Strange Loop, and I enjoyed that one more. I love the speeches his gives.

Stephan's free books (I purchased paper copies because I prefer them) at http://www.freedomainradio.com/FreeBooks.aspx;  I've even read the fictional ones, but recommend 'On Truth', 'UPB', 'RTR' and the anarchy books.

For an interesting fictional approach to anarchy I suggest (free at http://www.anarchism.net/steppes.htm) "On the Steppes of Central Asia"

The Art of War by Sun Tzu.  The actual book is really short bit there is usually alot of historical info that goes with it.  You can find it free online.  Activists need more ability in strategic thinking in my opinion and that book is the blieprint.  I re-read it every so often because i interpret new things as time goes by.

Boundaries of Order: Private Property as a Social System by the law professor Butler Shaffer.

https://mises.org/store/Product2.aspx?ProductId=589

"Every once in a while, a treatise on libertarian philosophy appears that presages a new way of thinking about politics and economics. Mises's Liberalism, Rothbard's Ethics of Liberty, and Hoppe's Democracy: The God That Failed come to mind."

This is the best book written so far this century. (in my opinion)

Thanks guys. Ordered a few of these (addicted to bound books and wide margins unfortunately). Hopefully I get to read them as I plan to do.
