Very low on reading material now and I'm looking for something to read. I just finished War and Peace and Anna Karenina and enjoyed really enjoyed them both. My only forrays into more classical authors that I actually enjoyed were Dumas, who quickly became my very favorite author to date, and now Tolstoy. Other than those two my reading life has been filled with mostly pulp of various sorts. The Louis LAmour of my father and assorted romance books of my mother all got swept up and read in the boredom of youth. The usual Tom Robbins and Keouac which were much more enjoyable being read in a fog of sorts which is best left behind in college. My schooling in engineering did nothing to expose me to different works academically. Any suggestions? Any particular author that you feel is particularly relavent to somebody on the edge of 30 with a family? Anybody that's just a good read without being garbage that's the book equivalent of crappy TV? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
