I only read Non-Fiction, here are a few of my recent reads:

The Prime Ministers by Yehuda Avner (read it a few times)



I just finished this one, and indeed, it was one of my best reads ever!

Just started the new Dan Brown- hope it's better than the last one and as good as his firsts.

Thanks to this thread, i've visited the library (recently) and taken out some books.
I finished One Year Off- a great read.
I'm in middle of The Prime Ministers- a great book about the history of Israel.

Not as good as his first two Langdon books but much better than his last IMO.  I enjoyed it.

For anyone who is interested in the Sistine Chapel or Michelangelo, i highly recommend The Sistine Secrets. You will be amazed to learn what the true meanings are behind the incredible artwork within the Sistine Chapel.

If anyone likes reading about Middle Eastern/Israeli History I can make a list here.

But you must start with The Prime Ministers
I finally got around to getting this book at the library. I just started it this morning and have a very hard time putting it down .
Thanks for the recommendation!

Just read it (10 hours on Amtrak is a long time :) ). A refreshing break from his last 3 (he doesn't even mention any of Roberts' previous experiences, except for one passing mention of the Vatican).

Read any good books lately?

I'm not a big reader normally, but I'm in the mood to read a book. Can anyone suggest a good book for a 24 year old guy that will really keep me glued to it?
