I like well documented thrillers, especially technological thrillers and spy stories. For instance I like to read Robin Cook (medical thrillers), Patrick Robinson (submarines), Stephen Coonts (airplanes). I also like Robert Ludlum's books, especially the funny ones. Speaking of fun, I will kill for a Clive Clussler I haven't yet read. So far I've mostly read French translations of these authors, but I'd like to read more of them in English.

I have some bookcrossing pictures on flickr.
