I'm a huge fan of reading, and I'm always open for suggestions! The types of books that I really enjoy are... DaVinci Code, Rule of The Bone, The Lovely Bones, Lucky, The Bean Trees, The Joy Luck Club, The Memory Keepers Daughter, Monkey Wrench Gang, Enders Game, Adventures of the Hunt Sisters, Poisonwood Bible, Memoirs of a Geisha, Devil in a White City, The Devil Wears Prada, Running with Scissors.... so, anything really.. with a good twist! :) No romance, bleeech.

howdy! whilst i appreciate its all very subjective i would highly recommend reading "stuff" by joseph connolly (particuarly rib-tickling) and "the roaches have no king" by daniel evan weiss. anything by bill bryson is usually good for a light holiday read (and cerveza!) and if you havent yet done so, and no matter if you have seen the (oscar award winning) one flew over the cuckoos nest by ken casey i IMPLORE you to make it you next read. (You'll thank me for that one) hope you enjoy!

Mmm, yes. I have already read One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest by Ken Casey. I have to say, it was definitely a good read. MUCH better than the actual movie.

indeed it is. but aren't all books better than their celluloid counterparts? shocking what passes for quality entertainment nowdays, folks seem reluctant to utilise the grey matter more. perhaps that why hollywood keeps churning out the proverbial... but i digress, "it's what he would've wanted" by sean hughes. dark, comic and twisted

Hmmm.. is he the one that wrote .. err.. I think its called Choke, or something like that? He's a little on the crazy side, yeah?

Yeah, he wrote Fight Club too. He's pretty crazy! I thik Survivor was better than Choke I read that one too... A book I read a couple months ago was Altered Carbon, by Richard Morgan... It's got lots of action and lots of twists and turns, because it's a detective book... The Big Enchilada is an old book but a good detective story based in LA!

hi chrisie, I can see that we read the same books! Da Vinci Code, Lovely Bones, The M.K. daughter, Memoirs of a Geisha, Devil Wears Prada. I've also read almost all Shopaholic series, and i'm into Steve Berry's books right now (something like Da Vinci Code) and some autobios. I'm also quite interested with courtroom dramas like John Grisham books, medical thriller like Michael Palmer, and other kinds of books. Keep readin'!
