Straight Angle™: Books to buy!

Books to buy! 

Recently, I got a 100$ Amazon gift check. Needless to say, the next thing that I did was to draw up a list of books that I can buy- the list that you see below is a list that was drawn with the 100$ in mind and not on any specific interest gaining importance. Some of the books are impulse purchases and some more are here just to assuage my desire to have them in my collection- though I have already read them before.
  1. The Idiot - Fyodor Dostoevsky
  2. The First Word: The Search for the Origins of Language - Christine Kenneally
  3. The God Delusion - Richard Dawkins
  4. The Intelligent Universe: AI, ET, and the Emerging Mind of the Cosmos - James N. Gardner
  5. The Brothers Karamazov - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  6. Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy
  7. Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  8. War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy
  9. The Stranger - Albert Camus
  10. The Fall - Albert Camus
  11. Being And Nothingness - Jean-Paul Sartre
  12. A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini
  13. Oxymoronica: Paradoxical Wit & Wisdom From History's Greatest Wordsmiths - Mardy Grothe
  14. The Age of Paradox - Charles Handy
Tell me your choice- if that would be different from this, what would you suggest?
