    Any book people here?
    What are you reading currently? Do you have any good books to recommend? Are there particular kinds of books you enjoy reading?

    I've become fascinated with the british monarchy around the time of Henry VIII. So I purchased the book "Royal Affairs". Can't wait to read it. I'm also addicted to The Tudors TV series; it's a guilty pleasure of mine.

    George r r martin, Raymond e fiest, and Niel gaiman are three of my favorite authors. Pretty much anything by them is good.

    Pick up American Gods by Gaiman if you get a chance.

    The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart is a really good one too.

    The Count of Monte Cristo...my favorite book to read. Other than that, just medical books...I don't waste my time reading fake stories.

    Lord of the Flies always caught my attention.. Maybe it was because I read it every year through 4 years of high school english..

    "Kill the pig! Slit her throat! Spill her blood!" .. Haha..

    Not really a hard-read, but I bought Gears of War; Aspho Fields.. If you're as into the story of the game as I am, you'll love this one. It ties up a lot of loose ends in the story and makes everything come together nicely.

    Primarily a Sci-fi/Fantasy reader, but I'll pick up just about any Fiction.

    This summer has been a David Weber summer - completing the 12 Honor Harrington books (space fiction), Out of the Dark (alien invasion) and now in the 4th book of the Safehold series.

    Just finished Power Down by Ben Coes (a full-out action terrorist thriller).

    Along with my current David Weber book, am also reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons - '90 Hugo winner.

    Pretty much always have 2 books going at a time.

    I have just read The Girl with Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson - a thriller from a Swedish author - great book

    I also read History, science, science fiction and general fiction

    I would also recommend any book by Alexander McCall Smith, start with The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - set in Botswana

    Not a book, but I would also recommend The History of Rome - a podcast on iTunes

    I am on "Mary Mary" right now. Once I finish the Alex Cross series, I will start on the Women's Murder Club series... unless a new Steve Berry or James Rollins book comes out first!

    My taste is also SF.
    Currently rereading an oldie, "Lest Darkness Fall" by L. Sprague DeCamp.

    Also partial to the David Weber books. My favorite fiction books are probably:

    Ivanhoe
    LOTR trilogy
    Witches of Karres
    Pandora's Planet
    Robinson Crusoe
    Red Storm Rising
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    The title of this subject reminded me; somehow I need to find more time to read.

    With that said; I am currently into Griftopia, by Matt Taibbi.

    Next book on the table; Life, by Keith Richards.
