Dean Koontz. Read all of his writings! For starters I would suggest "Odd Thomas" followed by "Forever Odd" and "Odd Hours". You don't need to do in that order whatsoever but the series have your mind wondering and entertained.

I'm kooky. I'm an insatiable reader, but I just can't get into fiction.
Give me non fiction all day every day.

On a serious note, I highly recommend "Playing for Pizza," by John Grisham. It's perfect for any football fan, or lover of Italian culture. It's also eerily appropriate for any Panthers fan right now.

It's about a quarterback who implodes so badly during a game that the only team that will take him is a minor league team in Italy (see what I mean about it being appropriate for Panthers fans?). A great, breezy read. Makes me hungry when I read it.

I just read that one...picked it up because I love John Grisham. This one is different from his legal thrillers but is a fun read. Good football story, plus, the food is amazing...at least his descriptions. Makes you want to catch a plane to Parma Italy.

In the vein of Hitchhikers guide - might I suggest anything by a fairly new author named Christopher Moore? My favorites are "Lamb" and "Fluke".

Also, if you've never read Kurt Vonnegut's "The Sirens of Titan", do so post haste.

Anything else by Orson Scott Card is great in my opinon, especially the rest of the Ender series. While it might get a little wordy, give Issac Asimov's Foundation series a try.

Picked up Grisham's latest in hardcover at the airport on Monday and finished it today. If you like Grisham I think it is one of his better ones.


Haven't read Ender's game in a long time but about to
