I read a lot, in a range of things, and my current Goodreads recommendations, based on my Read shelf, includes:
The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home, Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise,
The Stand, Stephen King (actually one of my favourite books), spinoff book, Captain Trips.
John Holt's How Children Learn
A World on Fire: Britian's Role in the American Civil War, Amanda Foreman.
It made me laugh a bit.
My latest weaknesses have been in zombie literature, and crappy vampire books. No, really.
