I want to read some more books but don't know where to start. The last book I read was "Stupid White Men" by Michael Moore. That's the sort of book I enjoyed. Can anyone recommend anything like that?

Also, some good horror please :)

I haven't read Stupid White Men, and I don't really plan to, so I can't really tell what type of book it is. ;) It could be a feminist book for all I know. For horror though...I suppose it depends on what era you enjoy, since writing style changes.

Since I've never read that book, I couldn't recommend anything. Though Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a pretty darn good book.

Hey Bo, did you ever read 'Relic' ? The movie sucked but the book was a hell of a page-turner.

If youre looking for funny stuff, give Terry Pratchett a try!

If you wanted to do some non-fiction, you could try "Trigger Happy" by Steven Poole. It's a thorough review of the state of games right now, but its main selling point is that it's hardly close to the norm - He doesn't write like they're something to worship, neither like they're a heretic which should be destroyed (you get what I mean). He literally writes about the state of games right now with no intentional bias, like someone who knows about what he's talking about but doesn't let it control what he writes.

Favourite quote from the book - "LA is like SimCity run by a maniac" :D
