I love reading. What I read mostly is novels – spy novels and sometimes romance to alter my mood. Sometimes too I read magazines (computer and fashion mags..) I also like reading self-help and biographies.

I like fantasy, historical fiction and books that just make you think. I like distopyian stuff like 1984 a lot. :D

I will read any book that grabs my attention, I always read the back first and if that catches my interest I will read it, I dont mind detective or informative articles if they are interesting in the first few lines or pages. At the moment I am re reading a book by Barbara Erskine called Whispers in The Sand, which is really good.

..I love history and science.. and like to watch "the History Channel" - tho they do, it seems to me get some things wrong (some of the shows that is. I also like to watch documentaries.. And I watch lots of science dvd's, usually cutting edge new things in the whole design versus 'evolution' controversies..

Hi I love to read and read just about anything. I never go anywhere without a book with me. The one thing I probably don't read is science fiction. Other then that I read pretty much anything.

I prefer science fiction and fantasy novels mostly. I just can't get into detective stories and what not like that.

Im in love with the classics but i can read just about anything. I used to read Stephen King and Eric Lustaberg alot but then ive grown more towards short stories and some poetry.

I usually read Romance, Poetry, anything Stephen King, Wiccan books, Astrology, Tarot, Numerology, Sylvia Browne, Psychics, Paganism, some magazines on how to cut your grocery bills, how to save money, and just about anything else that fits in with all of the above. Depends on my mood I suppose.

I normally read books based on management and cost cutting measures. I love these as they are helpful in making decisions at work. I have a good summary of all the books i have gone through. Lately i am finding less of time for books as i am now idicited to the net.

I like to read horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and a lot of different kinds of non-fiction. I used to like romance novels, but they get so ungodly repetitive sometimes. Ugh. I'm trying to get into mysteries, because I adore Sherlock Holmes so much, and I also love classics. I just bought this beautiful copy of The Adventures Of Robin Hood, and I can't wait to start reading it.

I pretty much read anything I can get my hands on, but mostly non-fiction and anything that is based on true events.
