Little Big Man by Thomas Berger. Excellent, hilarious book. I would describe it as Forest Gump set in the 19th century.

Sorry...that would help, wouldn't it...

Little Big Man is a historical fiction told from the perspective of a 111 year old man who recounts his time as a young boy moving west, then living with the Cheyenne, and then back with whites again. Along the way he meets all kinds of characters and figures. Think 18th century Forrest Gump (written a while before Gump though). I always used the Dustin Hoffman movie when I taught history but never read the book.

Ready Player One is a young adult novel set in 2044 where most of the population lives within a virtual reality gaming world and the real world has fallen to ruin. Within the game, its creator (a 1980s child and pool culture junkie) had created a quest to inherit his billions after his death. The story follows one, then a group of young players as they race against a mega-corporation to complete the three levels of the quest and earn their billions. It wasn't too bad since I got just about all the references and it wasn't wholly predictable as YA books can be, even if it was a light juvenile in parts with the writing.

I've heard very good things about this book and I've been DYING to read it. But, I'm pretty much banned from the local library and I'm living from paycheque to paycheque, so I can't even buy ANY luxuries let alone a book.
