I'm keen on starting to read books on a regular basis. To those people who read books regularly, are there any you could recommend?

I like TV shows/movies that are to do with crime, government corruption or conspiracies.. any good books of those genres? Preferably non fiction

I don't really have one particular genre I'm more into than others so whenever I want something new to read, I like going to charity shops and just browsing through all the different ones till I find something that I like the look of and that way you might find a genre you like best and can then go from there. It's hard to say "oh read this one" because there's such a massively broad range and people like very different things!

Wind in the willows, I love that book. Spook's apprentice series is pretty good, it's dark fantasy. Lord of the Rings, and the Hobbit. (I still need to read the Lord of the Rings) The Inheritance Cycle is quite good. Around the world in 80 days is a good read. Jules Verne is a good author. I quite like Inkheart, apparently it's a part of a Trilogy though. Tales of two cites, is good, but can be a bit hard to read. Ending is worth it though. Harry potter of course! I still need to read it, but Sherlock Holmes might be worth your time. I've heard good things about skulduggery pleasant, though I don't own a copy so I can't give you feedback on it. Just read anything that you like the look really of it, I read anything from Dark Fantasy to diary of a Wimpy Kid. Strombreaker was enjoyable as well, that's a good series. Can't think of anything else right off the top of my head, maybe the Percy Jackson series, I haven't read it but I know people who have,and it seems alright.

Try The Wool Trilogy by Hugh Howey. It's a future dystopia series, lots of conspiracy, and interesting look at what current politics could lead to (if you stretch your imagination a bit) and has a lot of scifi elements. Really good read.

I am really into crime books at the moment. Currently reading the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. I also enjoyed reading his Women's Murder Club series (although I am a bit behind on that one now). I have also enjoyed the books by Linwood Barclay.

Uh... if you wanna go into the more dark areas of crime fiction American Psycho is a book about a serial killer that is apparently good.

For government corruption I suppose I could still recommend Mein Kampf technically based on the couple of pages I've read...

If you simply google crime fiction:

There's quite a few thingies there, at least one of em must be good...
