Need some good suggestions

Hey everyone... Well after I go shopping today for some good vinyls I am going to go to the library and check out a few books to read.

Now with that being said. I have not read an actual book without being forced to in a very very long time. Not to say I don't read shit. I just usually read on the internet, but not actual books.

What are some good suggestions and books to look at. To give you an idea of how long it's been. I haven't even read any of the Harry Potter books. I am open to anything except romance novels, and Twilight.

Any suggestions would be great!

Thanks.

a bunch of people who work in MMORPGs by "farming" gold, aka earning in game gold just to sell to real world buyers
they fight back against their bosses to earn better wages and working conditions
a lot of it takes place in India and China and goes into details about factory workers there

i actually just finished it the other day and loved it

Can you be more specific about what kind of books you'll read?

Literary Fiction
- Wally Lamb [I Know This Much is True; She's Come Undone; The Hour I First Believed.] His books are VERY deep and awfully sad, but have a thin stream of hope that gets bigger near the end.
-Barbara Kingsolver [The Poisonwood Bible; The Lacuna; Prodigal Summer; Animal Dreams; Pigs in Heaven.]
-Maeve Binchy [she writes very "homey" stories about people in Ireland, they're very comforting and I've read them over and over.]

Historical Fiction
-Margaret George [her books are the "auto-biographies" about infamous historical figures - Mary Magdelene, Henry VIII, Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, and Mary, Queen of Scots.]
-Phillippa Gregory - she has a great series of books, starting with "The Other Boleyn Girl," that chronicle Henry VIII's realm through Elizabeth I's."
-Edward Rutherford - writes about historical places from prehistory to "current times." Has written about London, Sarum [where Stonehenge is] Princes of Ireland, New York... and does it really well.

Mystery
-Agatha Christie - any of her books, all of her books. I especially like "Hercule Poirot," her Belgium detective, but you can't go wrong with her.
-Mary Higgins Clark - more of thriller mystery, you're introduced to the whole of the suspect list and each of them have some kind of secret, but only one is the culprit.

Science Fiction [my definition, "Run By Technology,"]
-Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games Trilogy [The Hunger Games; Catching Fire; Mockingjay.]
-Orson Scott Card - the "Ender's Game" series.

Fantasy.
-Juliet Marillier - anything of hers will be deeply satisfying and beautiful.
- "The Chronicles of Chrestomanci" Series [three volumes]

Classics
- Victor Hugo - Les Miserables. Very dense, but extremely worth it.
- Le Comte de Monte Cristo [The Count of Monte Cristo] Exciting, well made characters, driven story line. So much more than the movie had time for.

I have many more, but here's a taste. PM me if you want to know more.
