i have a lot of interest and choosing a book to read isn't so hard for me. i read novels at night. during daytime, i prefer reading books about general information. from photograhy, biography or memoirs. there's a always a mood for me when it comes to picking up a book.

We're probably on the same footing, meoasis. I also read simply whatever catches my attention. Though I can be pretty biased. At first, I do try some googling to find reviews of certain books, and it's from there that I base whether I would actually go and read it or not. Haha.

II have always enjoyed reading. As a pre-teen I had a spot in a tree outside my bedroom window, where I would spend 2-3 a day reading. Presently my taste runs to Action, Mysteries, Sci. Fi. and Historical fiction. I enjoy reading Benard Cornwell, James Lee Burke, Lee Child, Jonathan and Faye Kellerman.

All of the above :-) Basically, I'll read anything that interests me and I have very wide interests.

I read academics most often. I read religious books too. But it's sometimes difficult to differentiate which are religious and which are academics because at certain level they blend well. I read novel too, but not often. For example, The Brothers Karamazov is a novel, but it is also a religious book, and it is highly academic too, as in the sense they philosophy underscored in the book is so profound.

I prefer reading novels written by my favorite authors. When I find myself reading non-fiction books, the topic would easily be on personal finance and how to get rich guide books, hahahahaha... I have not yet gotten rich after reading such books, but I did learn some tips on how to improve on my personal money handling skills.

I tend to read biographies, mostly because I'm just really nosy about other people's lives! However, most of the reading I do these days is online: articles, reviews, how-to guides. I would say this accounts for at least 60% of my reading...

I always keep an academic book with me and I try to read a few pages of it dairy to upgrade myself. If for fun and amusement, I tend to read books of romance, science fiction, Chinese historical stories.

I don't read much at all. I really don't have the time to. If I did have the time, I would like to read a good romance story. I also like to read books that have mystery to them also.

I tend to lean more towards novels for reading, when it's for fun, but I've been going for a lot more non-fiction and old textbooks lately. I think it's because I have a lot more access to them than I used to. I've been buying books like mad from Goodwill lately.
