    Default Good books?

    I'm desperately trying to find things to get into, since - *leaves out rant I'm sure everyone's seen already* - And I just randomly thought... I do like to read. I used to live on fanfiction.net, and I would still but I just don't see much that really interests me anymore.


    I used to like to read some books, but was very picky on what I would read. So...


    I don't really have a genre in mind, but can people tell me some good books that they enjoy, that maybe I should check out?


    When I was a kid I liked "The Giver" (And still love the themes of the book) and Number The Stars. ... actually thinking more about it they both seem like books I might still enjoy now... but maybe not as much as I think. (I mean because they were intended for younger readers.)


    I did read Harry Potter, but I don't think I'd like to read anything like it now, and for sure no twilight type stuff.


    Any ideas? Sorry for the veauge request. ^^.

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I am not into fiction that much. I do like to read about history, the arts, and philosophy. I'm about to start reading The Federalist Papers, which gives insight into the minds of the men who wrote the Constitution. With all the controversies about what the Constitution says and doesn't say, I think it is time for me to give it a re-read.

    I used to love such books too, but now I love detective stories! I don't know if you'll like this, but if you want to immerse yourself in an interesting story for a couple of evenings, then there is a Norwegian writer Jo Nesbo

    I like science-fiction. I write science-fiction. It's a cool genre, y'know...

    I haven't read it yet, but I am about to start The Periodic Table by Primo Levi. I've already read his books If This be a Man, and The Truce. I like reading history -- especially from those who were part of the story.
