    "oh the places you'll go"

    could you imagine? "what is the author's main point?"

    but on a serious note, anything by foucault and/or any post-modernist philosopher? A lot of random historical critiques. Any art history book.

    Harry Potter!

    jk. Read from a variety of sources in topics you aren't comfortable or familar with. Art history, government, politics, history, literature, education, sports, anything. I think it is beneficial to know a little about everything so if a passage shows up about some obscure detail or person you have some familiarity with its context, if that makes any sense.

    Almost anything that isn't in the mainstream reading culture would likely help you with verbal: political theory, philosophy, allegorical works, etc..
