    If you are looking for a suspense, I recommend "Lost Girls" by Andrew Pyper. You would need to get it on amazon, it is out of print.
    It is this haunting story of the disappearance of two girls in a small town in Canada, and the search to find them by a detective. It's really spooky and gripping.

    If you are looking for a good drama I
    recommend "Middlemarch" by George Eliot. I couldn't put this book down. It is a long book, but it's also a classic, and you can't go wrong with classics.

    If you are looking for something inspirational, go for "Chicken soup for the soul". I love it really.

    The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak is fantastic.  It is billed as a young adult novel, but I really think can be appreciated at any age.  It is narrated by death as he follows a girl growing up during WWII.  It is one of the best books I have ever read.

    "The Greatest Salesman in the World" by Og Mandino and "Tuesdays with Morrie or Five people you met in heaven" by Mitch Albom are the best books ever!

    I have listed some of my favorites in my hub "The Power of Books".

        There are lots of books that are more interesting to read . .I have lots of books i knew .But i must consider the mood of a person and most especially his/her interest to read.

    You've not given enough information.  What are your interests?  What do you enjoy reading?

    Do you want fluff or literature? 
    Romance or Action or Drama?
    Classic LIterature or contemporary?

    A good book to one person is a piece of crap to another.

    But if you don't mind reading in the YA area, the book, The Hunger Games, is wonderful. That whole series is quite good.   It's a futuristic tale of a forced  game played by teens to the death.  Only one can survive and if your picked to play, you'll probably die and if you don't die, you'll have to kill friends.   It's quite excellent.  It doesn't feel like YA at all.

    Thank you!  I shall try to look at all of your suggestions and get to as many as possible.  How else can someone know what is a decent book to read if not for other people's knowledgable opinions?

    My suggestion is Dracula by Bram Stocker.   I love to read books pertaining to the dark side.

    Would you prefer fiction or non-fiction? If it's fiction, I recommend John Updike's New York Girl, a short story published in the New Yorker in the early 1990s. There is also the version where Tessa Hadley reads the story and discusses it with Deborah Treismann on the New Yorker Fiction Podcatst. A terrific reading and great analyses.

    If it's non-fiction, I recommend James Gwartney's Microeconomics: Private and Public Choice. It focuses on questions such as rational/irrational decision-making, the interplay between the micro and the macro, and also asks what constitutes a distinctly economic way of thinking.
