I'll recommend the following:

1. The Count of Monte Cristo (Dumas). A wonderful story!

2. Thrillers: try Harlan Coben. My faves include Tell No One, Gone For Good, and No Second Chance. Also The Intruder and The Last Good Day, both by Peter Blauner.

3. Biography: one of the best I've read was Titan [John D. Rockefeller], by Ron Chernow.

Not so much fun as informative, I recommend:

Jerry Coyne, Why Evolution is True; and

James McPherson, Tried by War: Abraham Lincoln as Commander in Chief.

Also, Annette Gordon-Reed, The Hemingses of Monticello

I hope to read some more from a book of Russian short stories that I have and also Aristophane's "The Clouds". I also hope to read Thucydides _The History of the Peloponnesian War_, though that's partly "work related". If I make enough progress I might try to read Vasily Grossman's _Life and Fate_, though it's very long and I'm not a very fast reader so I'm not sure if I'll have enough time.
