I love to read fantasy books. Ive recently finished my last read and was looking for suggestions for something else to read. I would list what I have read but the list would probably take days to compile. Anybody with Suggestions?

I am not a reader at all. However, I just read iWoz by Steven Wozniak. It was a great book on how he invented the computer.

It's not fantasy, but I thought I'd chime in.

I'm currently reading iWoz. It's pretty interesting how his personality comes through in the writing...it's the same as the very few times I've seen him on TV (mostly TechTV when it was around).

Start the Dresden Files series from Jim Butcher. Very interesting reading for scifi/fantasy fans. I'm not much of a fan of the genre, but picked up the first book on a lark (it was free) and got hooked. 9 total books in the series (9th being released in April 2007)

Some books I can really get into but not just anything. I really enjoyed the Harry Potter books after seeing that my wife had them when we first started dating. Thought the DaVinci Code was good, Angels and Demons wasn't bad. I don't like specific genres of books either. Some interest me and others dont. I'm a huge Seinfeld fan so I'm looking forward to starting the Festivious book I got for Christmas.

I heard Howard plug the new Houdini book by the guy who helped write his books. It was pretty good.

I read alot. Bret Easton ellis is also one of my favorites.

However, I've found a new writer that is unreal. His name is Charlie Huston and he has written five books. 3 of them are a Trilogy about a character named Hank Thompson and they are hardcore. This guy knows how to write great violence and noir.

His other two are a vampire series, sort of. They're really a pulp noir PI story where the main character happens to be a vampire. None of that Anne Rice garbage, just hardcore pulp and cool characters.

You can check out his website and read some samples of his books. I'm telling you, there is no way you don't like the Hank Thompson trilogy:

1. Caught Stealing
2. Six Bad Things
3. A Dangerous Man.

His website is www.pulpnoir.com

He's a great writer.

Does anybody have any tips on books for me? I haven't read a book in at least 6 years. I don't like sci-fi, vampires, or mass murderers. I wish I could think of the last book I read, it was very good, but it slipped my mind.
