My book reading seems to go in cycles that are somewhat progressive: Autobiographies of Rock Stars, autobiographies from former Islamist extremists or victims, autobiographies of Soldiers serving in various wars, athiestic reading along the Dawkins and co line, books based on the lives and history of North Korea and presently i'm still forcing my way through the Qur'ran but its a highly tedious read - I can't say im enjoying the experience but it is giving some insight into the Islamic religion
I can't stand straight forward fiction these days. The only book I've enjoyed lately which could be termed as fiction was "Nothing to Envy" by Barbara Demick. She's an American reporter based in Seoul that over a period of years interviewed North Korean defectors. The book follows the lives of characters she has created based on the folk she interviewed, the names are changed for safety reasons and although not written in the perspective of a personal account the book is the best chance anyone will get of getting accurate insight into life in North Korea from the start to after the great famines.
The Rock Autobiographies are good fun. I wouldnt believe the stories unless it was from a rockstar, my personal favourites are Ozzie Osborne, Keith Richards and Steve Adler (Who is a massive fuckup of a human being). The Eric Clapton autobiography is also worth a shout if your a fan of his music.
