    I like Dan Browns books. Some don't call him a quality author, but he keeps me entertained nonetheless.

    I've been reading a bit of Noam Chomsky lately, he's a very intellignet and insightful individual. I enjoy his works, especially as a logical liberal. I'm also reading a book that combines all of Che Guevara's diary entries into a generalized story. It's tough to explain, but the author basically took all of the important, relevant diaries and put it into one book. Very interesting actually.

    I'm 56 and read 3-4 books a week and have done so as long as I can remember.
    It might be better if you were to ask to list writers we enjoy instead of book titles.
    That way you can check more than one book by a writer and get a better idea of what he's like.
    Some of the writers I like have also writted books I wouldn't line a bird cage with.
