"Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline

"Ready Player One" is a must read book for Gamers of all types and makes a great gift for the gamers in your life.  This awesome book was released in June of 2012 and quickly rose to become a New York Times Best Seller despite its roots in gaming and 1980's culture.  I can't recommend this Gamer Must Read Book any more.  After hearing about this book from a fellow Auction House Junkies co-host, Mike, I was quick to purchase my own copy and have thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this novel. 

Ready Player One takes you on a mysterious treasure seeking journey with plenty of twists, turns, and suspense along the way.  The book takes place in the year 2044 where much of the world is jacked into an online playground called OASIS, which was created by self made billionaire, James Halliday.  The whole story revolves around a treasure hunt for the riches of now deceased James Halliday, who left clues to his life's riches hidden within the OASIS online environment that he created.  Treasure hunters scour the OASIS far and wide searching for the next clues that will lead them closer to the fortunes. 

OASIS creator James Halliday was enthralled by gaming and game environments, as well as 1980's pop culture, so many of us will recall a large portion of our childhood references while reading Ready Player One.  This truly is a great book and should be on any true gamers' bookshelves.
