    Read about things that interest you the most whatever that is; however, one thing I do that defies that is reading books about things I know I don't like much and/or know nothing about. icon_smile.gif

    Would I find this under "erotic fiction" or just "fiction"? (and I've got a summary for ya right here...)

    The Hunger Games.

    But...the entire series will only occupy you for about a day...

    Completely worth it.

    The "A Song of Fire and Ice" series by George R.R. Martin is fantastic.

    Book 1 is "Game of Thrones".

    I would recommend the "Odd Thomas" series by Dean Koontz or the "Night Watch" series by Sergei Lukyanenko.

    If you enjoy non-fiction, the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was one of the better books I read last summer. You can Google the backstory and see if it might interest you. Have fun!
