    And I'm taking suggestions!

    My Kindle has been all read out. I need to get some new reading material.

    I usually read something on my Kindle and something on paper simultaneously, so I have a paperback read in progress (a rather heavy nonfiction, actually), but my Kindle has been all read out.

    Recently I tried to read some historical samurai fiction. I thought I might like it because I love Shogun, but it seems Clavell is simply exceptional when it comes to that genre.

    Recently I re-read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles (fantastic), Cat's Cradle (one of my favorites) and Dracula (a classic I had somehow missed until now). I'd personally recommend those to anyone else (as well as Shogun if anyone hasn't read it).

    Cat's Cradle is a particularly fast, easy and excellent read (as long as you like Vonnegut).

    Anyhow, anyone got any gems to recommend?
