Reading

Aside from my work, and studying that I'm doing, I try to set a little time aside each day to simply read, for pleasure's sake. Even if only for a few minutes. Right now, I'm at the beginning of Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon

Neal is an incredibly geeky and clever writer, and I can almost feel the delight at the wordplay he employs.

Bluntly, he is one of the very, very few authors who I appreciate as much for their ability to turn prose into poetry as I do for their ability to tell a story. Dan Simmons, Gene Wolfe, Cormac McCarthy are the others.

I don't read empty style, so you won't see me recommend someone with no substance just because they put a lot of effort into style.
