    1) i would suggest dracula by bram stoker's finest book,or the primrose path by the same author.
    2) edgar allan poe in fall of the house of usher or the cask of amontillado( they will blow your mind)
    3) if you like detective books try reading agatha christie.
    hope i helped, enjoy your holiday

    "How to win friends and influence people" by Dale Carnegie.

    Amazing book, often recommended by Warren Buffet in various Interviews.
    Really changes the way of how you interact with people in different situation.
    Not wanting to say too much but it will improve both your business life and private life.
    Has a bit of psychology, a bit of sociology, a bit of philosophy and a bit of solid practical advise in it.

    Other than that... Just google for a list of good books about business and finance.
    Having knowledge about money and finances in general is one of the most important things to have.

    You can always read IM stuff at home...
    On vacation I always try to read more complex and "deeper" books so I really have the time to understand, not just to read them.

    Meh, got this one a while ago, still haven't managed to give it a read. :)

    Just started reading this one, got past the desire chapter. I've got a feeling I know how the rest of the book will go. Hopefully it will be better than I think it may be.

    Focal Point by Brian Tracy. The information you'll find in there is all obvious as you read it... but it makes you incredibly aware of how much time you're wasting doing things that don't actually matter. It's a great book to boost your productivity.

    Anything from Paulo Coelho is awesome. I've read several books of his and planning to get more.

    I started reading this one a while ago and stopped somewhere in the beginning where the kid crossed the border. Dunno if I got bored or what, will need to give it another go.
