I decided to go the thought-provoking way this time with Foucault's Pendulum, by Umberto Eco. It's translated from Italian, and is NOT easy reading.

I just read this thread through and for all of you out there reading Stephen King, you will really like John Saul. I'm shocked no one has mentioned him yet. To all the semi realistic horror fans you should check out one of his books.

Anyone have recommendations for fantasy style books like what R A Salvatore writes? Im through all of his Drizzt books and getting a bit tired of the "good guy always wins" scenario.

Probably better books mentioned in this thread than those in the Amazon forums!

Project Gutenberg web publishes all the out of date stuff fit to print, including the quaint but lastingly popular volumes of the British humor and cartoon magazine: Punch.

I was browsing volumes circa 1916 to see how humorists viewed der Kaiser in such perilous times. Irreverent and sarcastic caricatures of the villain. Even in wartime the English retained their humor, at least in public and away from the battle lines. Odd, but quite jolly!

EDIT: They don't show the WWII era volumes, not out of copyright yet (drat!).

No Easy Day (The firsthand account of the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden) by Mark Owen.

One of, if not the best military book I have ever read.

HIGHLY suggest!

Just finished 'Flyboys' by James Bradley. Not sure what is next. I have a book of all of the original Sherlock Holmes stories and novels. I might do some reading out of that.

game of thrones was a decent series, the thing that upset me about it is the length of time they take to put the new ones on the shelf. I read somewhere that it will be another few years before the series next installment. At that rate the TV series will have passed up the book series. Tho HBO is notorious for screwing up a good book series anyways.

Pyramid Quest, do not remember the author, is a good similar read to Erich Von D. book. I would also say Survivors of Atlantis and their Impact on World Culture, Frank Joseph. It isn't really a crazy Atlantis book, it correlates massive disasters in human history, like close comet passes that would have sprinkled us with meteorites and massive quakes/volcanism with human events, like lithic construction, rise of empires, etc. Very compelling theories presented.

I'll see if I can dig up Pyramid Quest for the author.
