Any suggestions?

I've run out of books to read. Therefore, I must find new ones... any suggestions?

Authors I like:
Cory Doctorow
Harry Harrison
Orson Scott Card
Poul Anderson

(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.

How about free, Second Star (Star Svensdotter #1) [Kindle Edition]!



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.

Second to MOTE IN GOD'S EYE. Plus Niven and Pournelle's OATH OF FEALTY.
DESCENT OF ANANSI. FALLEN ANGELS is free at the BAEN free library. (If you haven't just download the whole Free Library.)
S.M. Stirling: CONQUISTADOR, ISLAND IN THE SEA OF TIME (and sequels)
F.M. Busby: RISSA KERGUELEN, DEMU TRILOGY
Larry Niven: THE INTEGRAL TREES, THE SMOKE RING (especially the latter)
Keith Laumer: Retief! (free)
David Drake: Lt. Leary, Commanding (Never mind Leary: Mundy rocks!) (free)
Eric Flint: 1632, 1633 (free)
David Weber: On Basilisk Station, Mutineer's Moon (free)
Philip Jose Farmer: The Green Odyssey, Two Hawks from Earth, The Maker of Universes (Not sure all are available in ebook but if you like Harrison's DEATHWORLD...)
