Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child. Doesn't matter which one - they're all awesome. Killing Floor was the first one, but it really doesn't matter which order you read them in since he's a badass ex-military cop / drifter who wanders from town to town and almost every story is a stand-alone.

Also, I REALLY WANT the new Kindle. It's almost impulse buy territory, but I'm holding out for Christmas... just in case.

It's a Kindle. I thought Hitchhiker's Guide was a requirement at time of purchase. :lol:

Edit: It's also only $6.29. How could you resist that?

I generally read history books. I don't think I've read almost any Sci-Fi at all. Give me a good starting point.

The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

You can get it from Gutenberg.org

They also have a whole bunch of other books as well, all free, and legal.

Agreed on the bit about Garth Nix

Garth Nix also wrote a series called Keys To The Kingdom, and another series called The Seventh Tower
