I've run out of books to read. Therefore, I must find new ones... any suggestions?
Authors I like:
Orson Scott Card
(The lower the price the better -- my ebook budget is not large...... )

From the authors you list, it looks like you're squarely in the realm of science fiction.
You might try the works of Niven and Pournelle. The Mote in God's Eye is available for kindle and very reasonably priced. Also of interest would be Dragon's Egg by Robert L. Forward. It's about a race of aliens who evolved to withstand conditions on the surface of a neutron star, with the result that one Earth hour is equivalent to hundreds of their years.

Or for $4.99 The Star Svensdotter Trilogy [Kindle Edition] (also contains a bonus short story).
These are by Dana Stabenow.

In no particular order, a few I've enjoyed recently:
Year Zero by Rob Reid
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Wool by Hugh Howey
Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson
Reamde by Neal Stephenson
I got most of these from my local public library, so, except for Wool, free.

SF in the Harry Harrison/Poul Anderson vein?
Oh, my; that is a river. I read that as adventure stories with ideas and wonder.
