I am a very picky person so it's hard for me to just go to a store and pick up a book, the cover has to be interesting, or the person recommending the book has to make me really want to read it! I have a good little collection. I read mostly tad williams, but I can read books like the poy called it and they caged the animals at night, they make me cry but they are good educational reads. I own ALL of Tad William's books. I own most of Tamora Pierce's books, but I'm still collecting, and that's what I think I'm going to spend my mylot money on!! I own the Elderest and Eragon books, yeah backwards sorry. I have the golden compass and amber spyglass although I haven't gotten the chance to read them A ton of Manga, anime comics, and a few web comics turned into books to donate to the wonderful artists that work hard to make us enjoy such things. what type of books do you read? And do you have any recommendations? Remember if you want ME to read them you need to make me WANT to read it:D

I enjoy reading books on Astrology. I don't know exactly how you feel about that topic. :) Right now I am reading James Patterson's "Sundays at Tiffanys", not a bad read and is keeping me on my feet. Quite the page turner.

I also wanted to mention that I know what you mean when you say that you are picky when it comes to books. I could spend HOURS in my favorite store Barnes and Noble just to find the perfect book for me LOL! :D

I like non fiction, self help and fantasy books. I am not collecting books. I can read some books twice, but most likely just once.

I like reading and rereading because I am usually just as interested the second and third time around but with most of the books I read they are large and really not something easy to read multiple times, but I know I at least have them to reread and remember :)

I agree with you about science fiction, I'll probably read any other book but there are only VERY FEW sci fi, just because... well most of them are about people in futuristic suits. Although The otherland by tad williams is a GREAT read even if it is considered science fiction It's actually pretty good!

I am mostly interested in non-fiction. I am a very literal realistic person, and a lot of fiction is just beyond me. I also like reading books about women's issues, and what women are experienceing today, and what they have experienced in the past.

you know what... reading about real things is pretty good although I'm not sure, it tends to get boring and what not, I mean I know people have interesting lives but to make it fictional... anything could happen around the corner, of coarse within reason. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!!

I thought I answered this. Well here goes again. I'm typically interested in science fiction. After that, fantasy. Then there are cookbooks, techbooks and science books. Then on the next tier its non-fiction. There are also manga and comics, but those really aren't counted as "books" in my view.

Sometimes I like murder mysteries but they have to be interesting and they have to have a good story line. They have to keep my interest or I won't read them. I prefer the ones that are reality based. I like psychology books and books about people that society labels as "crazy."

I mostly love to read classics like Little Women, The Bronte sisters, Jane Austen and Shakespeare but I also love Nicholas Sparks and a lot of medieval non fiction and fiction books, mostly the ones that surround the Tudors...
