    Have written a list with all of the suggestions and am planning to work through. But I started reading a book that's been on my shelf a few years... Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and I am loving it. A real insight into culture in Kenya, Somalia and Saudi Arabia. Has anyone else read it? I would definitely recommend it

    I just finished reading The 100 Year Old Man Who Jumped Out The Window And Ran Away.

    It was a light, very entertaining book.

    I also just finished 100 Year Old Man... and thought it was great.

    The Game of Thrones books are excellent too - very hard to put down - but maybe more of a reading commitment than you're looking for. They're all the size of bricks.

    An oldie but a goodie is The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, and also 1000 Splendid Suns (same author at The Kite Runner).

    I read Infidel a few years ago and loved it too. I have been meaning to read it again. A book I also really enjoyed was The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.
