I would have to recommend Nick Hornby's books. I'm sure you've seen and enjoyed the movie About A Boy, and i know you'll definitely enjoy the book more! You can also check out Hornby's other books: High Fidelity, How to Be Good and Fever Pitch.

For foodies like me who are also interested in the why's and hows of cooking, a really good book would be Alton Brown's "I'm Just Here For The Food" I'm not sure that it is available at National Bookstore. Malamang, Powerbooks will stock it first.
Anyway, IJHFTF goes beyond just being a collection of recipes. It also explains things like steam, water, spices, and all those things that are part of cooking that we take for granted. Written by an admitted non-chef in a funny, interesting way, incorporating physics, history, and FOOD in one package. If all my college professors had been as funny as AB, I would not have missed so many classes!!!
