The Origin of Species
This is not exactly what I would call "fun reading," but it's worth it. At times, it was hard getting through this book, mainly because it's dense and sometimes Darwin tended to drag and not get to the point, but I'm glad I finally read it. However, I think I should have read this at another point of my life - I mean, it was exasperating to read something I had just studied at a biology course I was taking. I still don't regret reading this. If you're considering on whether picking this book or not (yeah, I'm actually recommending it), I suggest you do it between your leisure reading because it can get tedious if you swallow it all at once.

May 8, 2015 –2.56% "Finished the preface. Hey, I told you I was going to read it slow! Oh, but don't worry, it's interesting enough for me to be still intrigued (and also, I think reading this book is gonna help me in my upcoming biology exam, since we're studying evolution and all that)."
May 9, 2015 –2.7% "My work is now (1859) nearly finished; but as it will take me many more years to complete it, and as my health is far from strong, I have been urged to publish this abstract.\n \n An abstract, you say? And this block is GIANT! Jesus, I can't even imagine how long this was going to be. O_O"
