Gates said in the post that he's leaned toward nonfiction over time, but that's been changing. He said he was drawn back to the books he would've loved as a kid.
Gates liked science fiction and Paul Allen did. I was a big fan of science fiction when I was a kid. He said that he and Paul Allen would spend a lot of time talking about the trilogy. There was something thrilling about these stories that pushed the limits of what was possible.

Gates said that the two sci-fi novels on the winter reading list made him think about how people can use technology to respond to challenges.
