So, I've been trying to get back into the habit of reading books , and I was wondering if anybody could give me some suggestions. Any genre is good, I only prefer it be readily available in most libraries or online (in entirety).
This week I've been dabbling in Orwell. Finished Animal Farm, finishing 1984 (I've made multiple attempts to read it in the past, but I never had the time, and had to turn it in after Chapter 3 or so), and dabbling in Coming Up for Air. I like all of these books, but for whatever reason, the whole political/social allegory of Animal Farm particularly interested me, so allegorical stuff woulld be pretty cool (as long as it's at least 100 or so pages. Animal Farm itself is short enough). Of course, all genres/themes are acceptable. as I said earlier.
So yeah, books.
Fifty Shades of Grey

Blanc is best CPU
The Discworld series. It's pretty much the best satire on the fantasy genre ever made and what's not to love about a giant sea turtle carrying four war elephants carrying a flat world flying through space?

^ What he said.
And, being a fantasy nerd, I have to give A song of Fire and Ice a recommendation.
"Anything could happen in the next half hour!"
"For the love of God, don't stop pretending you're a dragon!"
If you wanna go with something somewhat political, try catch 22. It's a bit dated but interesting nonetheless.
Otherwise, there's tons of other stuff to read. Personally, I got hooked on Stephen King's Cell and Dean Koontz's Lightning. Pretty neat stuff. It all depends on what you're really looking for.
Excuse me for parentheses and lysdexia.
The Running Man by Stephen King
The Brothers Karamazov
A Song of Ice and Fire (first book is A Game of Thrones)
I can't think of any more. These are all books I've read in the past two or three years. I just don't have the motivation to read or buy books.
I forgot to add Lord of the Flies. That is a good book. I read it last year for school.
Currently reading To Kill a Mockingbird for school and I like it even though I've seen the movie.
I'm serious, skulduggery pleasant is super beast
"The story follows the titular character Skulduggery Pleasant, an undead sorcerer and detective, with his partner Stephanie Edgley who calls herself Valkyrie Cain, and numerous magic-wielding allies as they try to prevent Nefarian Serpine from unleashing a weapon of terrible power on the world."
Fucking kick ass. I really really really wish they'd make a movie/ game/ anything about this book, it's badly underrated.

Stephen King (some aren't too good though)
Also Edgar Alan Poe. Always forget one.
Steve Jobs (Biography)
Both are very interesting and about 500 pages. SO you can finish them in a day or two depending on how fast you read.
The Story of Mankind
It's a detailed timeline of human history and its absolutely phenomenal. Make sure you get a recent edition though because some of the details in even a 1990 publish have been proven otherwise since.
Need to make an updated sig.

I know what you mean. Even if I can find the time I can't find the motivation and if I can find the motivation then I realize I don't have anything to read.
Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.
At first it's a little boring but once you get into it, it's really good.
It's about 6 kids who have 98% human, 2% bird DNA and they have wings and stuff.

It was boring
It's spelled Amontillado and I quite enjoyed reading it.
You could try giving The Pit And The Pendulum, The Tell Tale Heart, or The Masque Of The Red Death.

Also, The Alchemist is a great read.
