If you want some good fiction, read anything by Cormac McCarthy (Blood Meridian is my favorite-- very gritty). If you're looking for an easier read, I just read Gates of Fire by Stephen Pressfield (fiction about the Battle of Thermopylae in Ancient Greece), and it was pretty good... well-written, fast-paced, and entertaining. On the non-fiction side, I just read $100 Startup if you're at all an entrepreneur, it's a good, quick read. The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferris is pretty awesome health/fitness book that I'm working through right now (lost 12 lbs and put on a lot of lean muscles mass in just a few weeks since starting the book). Lastly, if you're looking for something historical, I'd highly recommend Theodore Rex, a biography about Teddy Roosevelt... really good. Hope this helps. Happy reading!
