mainstreet62: Can anyone recommend some books for me?

Just to give you all a taste of what I like: I'm a big fan of Robert Ludlum's books, including the Covert One series (which incorporates a bunch of biomedical info), written by several authors after Ludlum's death but using his style. I also like Dale Brown, which is a bunch of sci-fi military stuff.

I'm about to read Steve Jobs' bio. One of the most successful people in history (like him or hate him), should be a good read. But after that I don't know where to focus my attention.


May I recommend reading a few history books.

Just because you don't read many books a year doesn't mean you don't read frequently. I'm not claiming to be an avid reader, but I discontinue reading a majority of books halfway through, and many are nonfiction which makes a front to finish read occasionally unnecessary.
