    If you like fantasy, anything by Andre Norton, Roger Zelazny, Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, Piers Anthony, Lawrence Watt Evans, or Phillip Jose Farmer.

    If you like science fiction, anything by Isaac Asimov, Harlan Ellison, Phillip K Dick, Robert Heinlein, Frank Herbert, Douglas Adams, or David Weber.

    If you like non fiction futurism anything by Ray Kurzweil.

    If you like Hypnosis anything by Richard Bandler, Robert Dilts, or John Grinder.

    If you like cognitive science Friedenberg and Silvermen.

    If you read a few of these and give me an idea of which ones interested you and which ones didn't, I could make a list of books you may like.

    I'm also trying to become an avid reader. I have to admit my favorite author is Shel Silverstein, any book by him tend to be my light/fun reading. I also enjoy Langston Hughes, "Selected Poems by Langston Hughes," "Tamborines of Glory," and "Not without Laughter" are books that I have enjoyed reading.

    I also finding I'm begining to like Paulo Coelho. I haven't read everything by him, yet, but I enjoyed the "Alchemist," "The Devil and Miss Pyrm," and "The Pilgrimmage."

    Other "lighter" books I've read that I think are good are: "The Help"  and "The Secret Lives of Bees."
