A little burned out...

I've been having trouble getting into reading all summer. I finished maybe one book. I had all the time in the world, but I just didn't feel like it. Usually I adore reading, but lately I've been giving up on books if they don't immediately compel me.

I've been reading The Picture of Dorian Gray for months and I'm on page 50 or something pathetic. Once I get stuck in a dull spot, I can't seem to get out and just put the book down for weeks. I really do enjoy the majority of the book so far. Argh! Anyone else ever have a problem like this?

And now, what I'm looking for is is a truly compelling and fascinating book to help get me out of this mess. Fiction or nonfiction is okay. Tragedy, comedy, it's all good.

I don't enjoy:
Sci-fi
Fantasy
Most history books (excluding a few)

I am fascinated by:
Realistic fiction of any kind
Politics
World War II
9/11
Media/journalism
Comedy/comedians!
Music
New York City

Anyone care to help me out?
