Looking For Good Books

I’ve been trying to read more books, both fiction and non-fiction, over the past few months. Over the past 12 months I’ve read a slew of books, but recently have been slowing down- haven’t read anything completely in past month. I don’t want to stop, so I need some good referrals. I just ordered The Wizard of Menlo Park: How Thomas Alva Edison Invented the Modern World by Randall E. Stross.

What else should I read?

To give you a sense of what I’ve been reading, here are some of the books I’ve recently finished:

Fiction
11/22/63 by Stephen King
The Hunger Games Lucky Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
The Best Of Me by Nicholas Sparks
Zone One by Colson Whitehead
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Non-Fiction
The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al-Qaeda by Ali Soufan with Daniel Freedman
Boomerang: Travels in the New World by Michael Lewis
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
The Paypal Wars: Battles with eBay, the Media, the Mafia, and the Rest of Planet Earth by Eric Jackson
Lucky or Smart? : Secrets to an Entrepreneurial Life by Bo Peabody

I’ve also started Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin.
