Thank you so much! I was just remembering Neverwhere last night and couldn't remember who it was by or what it was called, but I loved his style and subject matter. I'll definitely check out the others.

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. (perfect for the Kindle because it is just under 1,000 pages)
I also love Ishmael by Daniel Quinn.

A wonderful Victorian Gothic styled novel.

The Innocent Man by John Grisham is amazing. It's his only non-fiction book. It's about a man who was wrongfully convicted of raping and killing a woman. It's sad, frightening, amazingly well-researched, and a great read.

I don't know how the hell I ever lived my life pre-Kindle. I carry my Kindle Touch everywhere with me in my handbag, and I have a Kindle Fire HD that I keep next to my bed. My favorite books are biographies/autobiographies/memoirs - I'm currently reading Raven, about Jim Jones D:

I also have books on there by Dr. Robert Sapolsky because I'm a neurobiology geek. Also cookbooks. Also knitting/crochet books. Shall I go on? lol

In no order:

-The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
-Kristin Cashore's books- Graceling, Fire and Bitterblue. Graceling is my favorite of the three.
-Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
-Harry Potter series
-Juliet Marillier's Sevenwaters books. I'm currently reading her latest one, which I just got for Christmas
-Shadowfell, also by Juliet Marillier, but not in the same series
-I really liked The Maze Runner. I need to read the other book(s).
-Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series
-To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
-Catcher in the Rye

When I was growing up I used to refuse to read almost anything outside of the Star Wars books (with Goosebumps and Animorphs being exceptions) so unfortunately I don't have a very big list of non-Star Wars books I've read that are my favorites.

Not a book recommendation, but if you are looking for a variety of books, check out pixelofink.com. They basically just keep track of what's being offered for free from Amazon that day, so you can check it out and see if you want to download those books.

Ender's Game was the first book I ever read on a Kindle, and it was perfect. I highly recommend overall, and the next in the series: Hive Queen and Hegemon. Don't expect for the second one to be anything like the first though; they're like two stand-alone books.

I love Rand.

Ginsberg if you like poetry.

Anything Vonnegut is pretty much going to be blow-your-face-off good.
