The books that I absolutely love are all by Patricia Cornwell. They are about a medical examiner named Kay Scarpetta. If you enjoy a good thriller then you will really enjoy these books.:)

I recommend James Redfield's "Celestine Prophesy" because it makes you think about your life in a whole new way. This book has been on the New York Times' Best Seller List. Fair warning though, you've got to be open to what the book has to say before you read it, otherwise it'll only be a story and nothing else, which defeats the goal of the author.

Read the DaVinci Code. It's an interesting book, probably more interesting than the movie as it goes into more depth. They also have it out as an audio book, but I'd rather read than listen because I lose track of the plot when I try to listen to it.

Last fiction book I really enjoyed was "The Business" by Iain Banks. It's very witty and funny but on the other hand there it's about very serious matters, like power of the money in the world for example.

Tony Hillerman's books are good, especially his earlier ones. If you haven't read it yet, check out "Skinwalkers."

I suggest The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. It's a little bit romantic but not over the top. I loved it.

I just finished John Grisham's The Innocent Man. I would highly reccomend it. It is his first non-fiction piece and in my opinion a brilliant piece. I found it difficult to stop reading.

Book: The Long Road Home by Danielle Steel - The Long Road Home by Danielle Steel
There are so many great books out there and so many duds too! This is such a good question, I'm always looking for great new stuff to read. One thing I have to say is that my all time favorite book is actually by Danielle Steel, it's not her "typical" everything-is-a-fairytale type of stuff. It's called The Long Road Home, it has a purple cover. Check it out, it's a fast read!

The Stand by Stephen King is excellent. If you prefer light reading the Harry Potter books are great!

The Stand is also a huge book, very long. For someone who wants something less daunting, there's Skeleton Crew, a collection of King's short stories.

Steaua - FC STEAUA BUCURESTI was founded following to a decree signed off by Mihail Lascar on the 7th of June 1947, on behalf of the National Ministry of Defense of Romania. In the summer of 1946, a few generals and high officers of the Romanian Army were seriously considering starting up a military club and an Army's football team. A few months later, in the spring of 1947, their endeavors led to the formation of the so called "Sports Association of the Romanian Army".
   The first leader of the football team was also its skipper, Stefan Septville and the newly emerged team had its first ever training camp. Despite the  fact the new team had to take a play off for promoting to the second Division, it was brought up to the top Division, as a replacement for the team Carmen, which was excluded form the top football of Romania. The first coach of the team in its first season in the top Division was Coloman Braun-Bogdan.
   Soon the team was named CCA and won its first ever domestic title in Romania in 1951, under the helmet of Gheorghe Popescu, one of its honorary founding members.
   Between 1951 and 1961, CCA won 5 more domestic titles, till its name was changed to STEAUA, in the summer of 1961.
What did STEAUA bring as an innovation to Romanian football.
   Steaua has always promoted the skillful, free flowing and spectacular football, played at an amazing pace, which brought the nickname "The Speedsters" for the mid 80's team . That STEAUA team became the first ever Eastern European club to win the highest trophy of the European Football, the "Cup of the European Championships" (or UEFA Champions League as it is known today).
   In the 1990's, our club's team won the domestic championship of Romania for 6 times and represented the country 3 times in a row in the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE competition.
   All together, STEAUA BUCURESTI trophy cabinet is by far the richest in the country, as our team won 23 domestic titles, 20 National Cups and 5 Romania's Supercups.
I suggest "Dune" by Frank Herbert, or "The Colour of Magic" by Terry Prachett

Get hold of 'The Partner' (ISBN 0 71 266136 0) which was on NewYork Times best seller#1 list for quite sometime. The author is John Grisham; He has also written other great books: 'The Runaway Jury' and 'The Firm' All these books make a great read.

Why? I think the bad side effects is... you forget to eat and don't want to sleep until you finish the book (especially if the book is really good!) lol...
