anyone with a Palahniuk boner doesn't know what they're talking about
I like Dan Browns books. Some don't call him a quality author, but he keeps me entertained nonetheless.
I've been reading a bit of Noam Chomsky lately, he's a very intellignet and insightful individual. I enjoy his works, especially as a logical liberal. I'm also reading a book that combines all of Che Guevara's diary entries into a generalized story. It's tough to explain, but the author basically took all of the important, relevant diaries and put it into one book. Very interesting actually.
I'm 56 and read 3-4 books a week and have done so as long as I can remember.
It might be better if you were to ask to list writers we enjoy instead of book titles.
That way you can check more than one book by a writer and get a better idea of what he's like.
Some of the writers I like have also writted books I wouldn't line a bird cage with.
I'm 53 and like Buzzby and quester I have read all my life. Some weeks 6 or 7 a week. I can't imagine a life without reading material......... There are quite a few here who I consider well read......

Fuck I never realized how many books I have read. This is just the list of the books that came to mind, I have read a lot more books but I can't think of them from the top of my head right now. Some of those books I had to read for school like the Shakespear books but who doesn't.
