Need good read in the sci fi genre

looking for casual sci fi book, maybe near future maybe more where main form of entertainment is to "plug in" to have avatar in other worlds. and how people just work and need to escape once in a while. nothing grand or epic just enjoyable.
kinda like minority report where cruise goes to some expert and people are plugged in but im looking for more at home use.
dothacksign anybody?

Octavia Butler is my absolute favorite, but she isn't a light read. Second place is anything Star Trek. Those are definitely quick, easy reads. That's really the only Sci Fi I ever really pick up.
