You know what I started reading? This bloody 1,000+ page epic. By Stephen King, of course, who else? And I must say, the first few pages have me hooked already.
Also, if you're a writer (especially a callow green like me), I recommend you read John Fowles's THE COLLECTOR. It will inspire you. It's a writer's book, in the same realm as MISERY by Stephen King, only the genders are reversed. Actually, read both of them. They are both great.
