I need a book list.?
I am an avid reader, at least one book a day, and i need opinions on what to read. I prefer mystery novels, but i'm open to anything. I've read all J.D. Robb, Tami Hoag, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, all of the famous authors, i've read from cover to cover, but i know there are others out there that are just as good, they just haven't been found yet. It doesn't have to be mystery, i just finished "A million little pieces" and "my friend Leonard" and really enjoyed both. I don't like Romance or anything star treky! Please help!!!!!

Anything by Robert Cormier (SP?) He wrote the Chocolate War and I Am the Cheese.
Also try a book called Tsosti. It's great!

You might have to slow down or start re reading books. I do not know for sure if you have read these guys but John Steinbeck, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, and F. Scott Fitzgerald are all great.
