Anton Chekov- the comic stories. It's a different side of his writing that most people are unfamiliar with

- It's Not About the Bike, My Journey Back to Life - Lance Armstrong. This book is really good. What he has done in the tour is amazing and once you learn what he had to go through it will blow your mind. A book everyone should read.

Ken Follet "Pillars of the Earth" It may be a thick book but it's very dificult to put down. If you like Medieval historic fiction, give it a go. If you don't like it, you will after reading this book!

Neil Gaiman "Neverwhere" This guy who wrote the Sandman graphic novels has a gift or story telling, he is truly a wordsmith who spins a great tale. The story takes place beneath London and encompasses some actual under-London folklore. A great read, and I heard there's a movie in the works. Yay!

Stephen Ambrose "D-Day" You can guess what that's about. One of the greatest historic writers of our times whose books are based on fact and personal accounts. He rarely ever misses a detail.

Author Unknown (can't think of the name) "Don't Know Much About History" Good for history trivia hounding, not too in depth but it's got tidbits here and there that are very interesting. And unlike many history based books, it's not written in a dry tone at all.
