what kind of books should I be reading?

September 5, 2007 11:13pm CST
I'm 25 and I haven't had enough time to bury myself in a good book.But I'd like to know what kind of books should I be reading.Before,I've been buying books from female authors I like such as Elizabeth Wurtzel & Ellen Degeneres. Wurtzel's a brilliant writer & so is Ellen!Ellen's not only a good actress,comedian, writer but she's also one of Forbes richest women!Top that,Oprah!hehe.Well,just thought you'd like to give your opinions.Thanks a lot myLotters!

If you're reading for enjoyment (the best kind of reading) there are no "should's" At least none that an outsider can tell you without some idea of your interests. If you like a certain author, and they've written more than one book, read some more of their work. Try to find books on subjects that you like. What I may consider a must read book might strike you as dull and boring.

thanks angelwriter!well maybe i shouldn't be asking what books I should read but what books I must read?Was browsing Borders yesterday & couldn't find anything I like.Geez,it's either I've turned dull & boring or there are no good writers out there,which I think is just bull.thanks again!

I do not know about all the other kinds but if you want to go for friction there is nothing better than Dan Brown's complete collection. I feel they are the best for light reading and include awesome facts many people have never known about in interesting ways. The book sinclude The Da Vinci Code, Digital Fortress, Deception Point and Angels and Demons(my favorite).

I really enjoyed The Kite Runner, The Lovely Bones, Drowning Ruth, The Ladies #1 Detective Agency books, Fall on Your Knees. If you want a lighter read and something cute the Shopaholic books are actually pretty good. I like to check out the rating on Amazon before I buy. People rate books they've read and sometimes it makes choosing easier. Have fun finding a book.
