    "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'd probably start with 'The Better Mousetrap' & 'The Portable Door'

    Read 'On The Road' more times than I care to remember, and it is good. If you like things like tha, have you read HST's Rum Diary?

    Thanks for the suggestions! And I haven't read Rum Diary, but it's going on the list too.

    Dan Brown makes me want to scrub my eyeballs with wire wool ... really really can't stand things on that tip (which includes Tom Clancy/John Grisham and their ilk)

    Just my opinion though - more people reading whatever floats your boat is a good thing

    (I knew I started a book thread somewhere)

    You can also add non music magazines to this list....

    "The partly cloudy patriot - Sarah Vowell" was fantastic

    so was "Lonesome Dove" my dad's favorite book...

    I have no idea how I missed this thread for nearly 3 weeks.

    If your into sci-fi at all then a must read is Neromancer by William Gibson and Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. Although if you are into sci-fi I'm sure you already have....

    Game of Thrones better than the series

    For sci fi you can't go past Phillip K Dick start on one of his short story books

    For something a bit deeper Arthur C Clarke the 2001 series is great

    The Dune series by Frank Herbert

    William Gibson of coarse

    Charles Bukowski is a laugh
