I am a novice to C++ but I am trying to improve. Ive started reading quite a few books which include:

Learn C++ in 10 minutes - Jesse Liberty

C++ Game Programming - Michael Dawson

Im still in the first 100 pages in both so im not into to advanced items yet. The problem is although the books might help you learn the language they in no way give you an idea of what to make. Could you please give me some ideas or ways to brainstorm ideas on what kind of programs to make. Keeping in mind though that im still a novice.

So far ive only made a Calculator (+-/*%) and some examples that were given in the book.

Thanks for the help. Even though I will probably get stuck after the first 3 programs :(
