    You should read some of Bill Brysons stuff, he's pretty good, it's all non-fiction accounts of various things here and there, really recommend it. Also check out Cormac McCarthy, his stuff varies a lot between novels but The Road and No Country For Old Men are just excellent

    Just to let you know this thread is about a year old! Hopefully the OP has found something to read. Still some great suggestions though.
    hmmm, didn't check the date this was posted haha. I just saw that there was a reply on here recently and decided to waste some time

    Maybe try any Kazuo Ishiguro books. They are very easy to read yet have deep storylines that really draw you in. 'Never Let Me Go' is beautiful.

    Anyone know any good books about virus outbreaks that kind of thing?
    Try The Stand - Stephen King. It's really very good, one of Kings best IMO, it's a bit of a long read but well worth it

    Catch 22 by Joseph Hillier (I think). One of my all time favourite books.

    Edit: Sorry, it's Heller!

    A series of Unfortunate Events is possibly the best written book of all time.
    Lolita takes that one for me.

    Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs, Dinosaurs before dark and Danny and his dinosaur.

    General bookswise - The tiger who came for tea (ahh the memories...), anything by Roald Dahl and my 8yo son recommends Artemis Fowl

    We read Omnibombulator and The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark in Year 3 and I loved them. And the Lighthouse Keeper series! Not exactly dinosaur themed but they're brilliant books for that age group
