Writer's Block: Light reading

Some books are inspirational. Others are intellectually stimulating or emotionally comforting. Then there are those juicy, mindless reads that are only good for a plane ride or the beach. Which books or authors fall under this last category?

Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels are my favourites in this category. Some are better than others and they're very formulaic but they're all page turners.

When I'm expecting a lot of reading time and few distractions, I tend to pack some huge rambling thing that requires lengthy immersion to appreciate. It's the only situation in which I can get into, for instance, "The Tale of Genji" or some Pynchon doorstop. Normally I just don't have the staying power.

That's fair enough - I'm the same (I could only get anywhere with the excellent Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson on holiday) - but what about light reading?
