Currently reading "The Prey" written by Micheal Crichton.
Other recent ones were mostly by Dan Brown - Angels & Demons (somehow liked it better than the Da vinci code), Digital Fortress.
Best one so far (if i can remember) is "Papillon" by Henry Charriere. Recommended for a thrilling read. This is an awesome true life autobiography by a person wrongly commited for murder.... and his true tales of escape... i admire his determination...

Discovered this thread recently. I love reading books so its gonna be hard for me to list my top 5.
Recently, I finished reading
- Amulet of Samarkhand
- Golems' eye
- Ptolemy's Gate
Considering the fact that these books are found in teenage section of Landmark (in bangalore), I guess I discovered them rather late. Enjoyed them nevertheless.
Got my hands on "Speaker of the Dead" by Orson Scott Card. Finished reading it last weekend. I have been looking for it for quite some time after I read "Enders Game". Amazing Books if you like Sci Fi.

Though the Dresden files is the more popular series with white night hitting NYT bestseller list, I found that codex Alera series is more engaging.

Currently reading Hari Kunzru's Impressionist. Looked this up because I liked his writing in The Transmission. His writing is very visual and outstanding, though the same cannot be said about the plots. I read his books for the visual impact of some the lines -- like the stomach churning bass kicks from a good sub :-)
My wife is a writer, so our home library has most of the 'serious' must reads, but being a bad reader (I visualize too much, according to her -- but hey that's what I do for a living), I take a huge amount of time to finish a book. So I prefer short stories.
