Friday night topic: Good reads

— 5:40 PM on March 16, 2012

With the rise of e-readers and tablets, I've found myself trading time formerly spent watching TV for time spent reading books. Much of that time has been spent in the fantasy genre, as we've previously discussed, and I've been making my way through many of your recommendations in that thread. (I've read nearly everything by Brandon Sanderson, for instance. The Way of Kings is really, really good.) However, I'm ready to take a breather and look to other genres at this point, which leads us to tonight's topic.

What books have you read recently that you'd recommend?

I really enjoyed The Dig, which has a bit of a Crichton-esque flavor and a fun premise. However, I'm not sure what to read next.

Any suggestions? Discuss.

P.S. I've avoided discussion of the new iPad and its magical, wondrous display this evening in deference to the anti-Apple contingent, but I've started that discussion in the forums.
