Great thread...one of my New Years resolutions was to get back to reading novels on a regular basis. In the past year it seems like when I had reading time, I would pick up a magazine instead of a good book. My goal is to read at least one book a month this year.

JANUARY
Cell- Stephen King (completed)

FEBRUARY
(currently reading) The Summons- John Grisham

Does anyone have any other good recommendations for what to read? I'm running out of things that I know of and when I randomly pick a novel it sucks 99% of the time.

If you like space opera Sci-Fi I highly recommend The Saga of the Seven Suns novels by Kevin J. Anderson. Also just about anything by Robert A. Heinlein.
