    Sherlock Ohms, I haven't read Tom Holt, but will get something from him soon since you suggested it. Any books in particular you recommend from Mr Holt?

    "On the road" by Jack Kerouack is a classic and a good read! And if you want to follow Neal Cassidy ( a real person and character from the book) read some Allen Ginsberg poetry, and "The Electric Koolaid Acid Test" by Tom Wolfe.

    An excellent fantasy series is "The tales of Thomas Covenant" by Stephen R Donaldson.

    Keep em coming. I'm making a reading list

    I'm pathetic when it comes to reading. I only manage maybe a book a year, used to be more when I relied on public transportation. Last two books I've read were:

    The Bolivian Diary of Ernesto Che Guevara
    Sometimes passion gets in the way of reality. Living off of cans of lard in the jungles of Bolivia sounds shitty.

    The AutoBiography of Malcom X:
    Great story and interseting how he crossed paths with so many well know people before becoming well known himself. Like being a dishwasher with Red Fox before they were both famous.

    Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Beautiful Struggle:
    Half way done with this but I'm finding it hard to finish.

    I just realized that all I read are biography's, maybe I should switch it up.

    I mainly read fiction (the only factual books i read are to do with economics and financial services because its my job).

    Authors i like: Dean Koontz, Mark Billingham, Stephen Leather, Dennis Lehane, Irvine Welsh and Stel Pavlou.

    Generally a mix of British crime novels and international murder/mysteries.

    Only problem i find is actually finding time to read. Ive even recently resorted to audio books. Currently listening to the new Stephen Leather novel in my car to and from work everyday. Enjoying it actually and it means i get to "read" my book without having to put time aside specifically to read!!

    When I was on the road alot, I loved the audio books. You can just check them out from the library here. Had one narrated by Morgan Freeman. I could listen to him all day.
