Hmm... my matching list includes what's on my bookshelf at home, though my supplemental list is what's in my book stack (next to my bed in the hostel). I'm sure you've heard of a lot of these guys, but if not, I've recommended their best book.

William Shakespeare
J.K. Rowling
John Steinbeck
Neil Stephenson
Amy Tan

Gabriel Garcia Marquez (reading 100 years of Solitude now. If you like Pablo Coelho, you'll like this - 4 stars)

Bill Bryson (pretty much anything for a place you've already been - not so great for new places)

Dan Brown (Sure you've heard of this, but the Da vinci code is interesting reading, some semi plausible postulations, some complete random crap - fun sifting the difference)

Yann Martel (Life of Pi - if you haven't read this it's worth getting your lovely husband to pick it up for you - an easy read, great story and engagingly written, it also passes for literature, which always makes me feel smarter)

Suetonius (12 Caesers - is a rip roaring laugh. I've been known to have a twisted sense of humour, but when reading about Caligulia and you find yourself thinking "blah blah pillage blah blah rape - couldn't you find anything NEW to do"? You know you've had a good time. An easy read and funny as f**k. Added bonus of trumping any Ann Coulter essay until the end of time)

Enjoy, and I hope you feel better soon!
