    Thanks guys. I posted this and then got busy.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far, they are great! I've read The Hobbit and Blood Meridian already so I'm off to look for some of the others.

    I enjoy almost anything other than romance novels, so keep them coming!

    Two of my favourite books ever are Catch 22 by Joseph Heller (as you can see) and Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky. I'd recommend both to everyone.

    Okay. I primarily read kind of fluffy stuff. Reading, for me, is like watching TV in my head, so it doesn't have to be amazing quality, it just has to be entertaining.

    If you want gritty, combatty stuff, Stephen Hunter. Maybe Hot Springs or Dirty White Boys.

    If you want Brit Lit classicy stuff, Jayne Eyre is a fave of mine.

    If you want some classicy adventure stuff, Kidnapped is pretty good.

    If you want satirical fantasy, you can't beat Terry Pratchett. His stuff is pretty funny. The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents might not be a bad place to start.

    Legal thrillers: Lisa Scottoline. Everywhere That Mary Went is, I think, chronologically first.

    Mystery: Anything by Agatha Christie or any Nero Wolfe novel by Rex Stout.

    If you want something that feels a bit like Buffy the Vampire slayer: Julie Kenner - Carpe Demon.

    If you want unapologetic, page-turning fantasy, complete with embarrassingly campy covers: Mercedes Lackey. I just read By the Sword and it is as good a place as any to start.

    I have read several of the Dune novels. They are good, but kind of heavy. Not light reading.

    If you haven't already read the Chronicles of Narnia, forget all the other suggestions and read that.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Innumeracy by John Allen Paulos is one of the books I have enjoyed most in life.

    The good fairies of New York, Martin Millar, very warm and feel good

    The reluctant fundementalist - Moshin Hamid - good twist at the end

    The wasp factory - Ian Banks - seriously twisted, and a twist at the end

    We need to talk about Kevin - difficult to get into but stick with it, the end gets good

    The Power of One - Bruce Courtney - very up lifting, the back of the book seriously under sells this book. Set in Africa its great for a cold winter evening

    Seventh Well - Fred Wander - a recollection of the holocast, very moving and strangely uplifting

    I've loads if you want more

    You know what I read and enjoyed recently? Treasure Island. I never read it as a kid and I picked it up for my kids. (they get points for reading certain books) It started me on a classics kick! I actually have catch-22 to read but haven't started it yet.

    I would read Saint, Showdown, and Sinner by Ted Dekker [those are three separate books part of a series.]
    That series gets your adrenaline pumping and its such an awesome story. Actually, each book is different than the other, but there's something that connects them together. You can read them in any order too. They're amazing!
