I like to read allot. Surf wise all 3 of Alan C. Weisbecker are good. Non-surf related on the road by Jack kerouac, or anything by him. Rules of attraction by Bret Easton Ellis. The electric kool aid acid test by Tom Wolfe. And a father's story Brett Jeffery Dahmers father.
We had a similar thread last year. That's cool, mine are:
John Steinbeck: Cannery Row
Ernest Hemingway: The Old Man and the Sea
James Michener: Chesapeake, Hawaii
Louis L'Amour: Paperback westerns. Good, light reading at night before hitting the rack.
Books on religions, art history, California history, various nature guides, and
children's books written in German (I still struggle with those).
