Do you read alot of books? What is your favorite author and type of story? Are you a love story reader, a mystery reader, a horror reader, or a true story reader? I like to read mysteries. I am currently reading 2 mysteries, and i have just finished the third. I like Nora Roberts writing as J. D. Robb. The Eve Dallas series. I have several authors that i read, but i would have to list her as my favorite.

hello dmrone i enjoy reading a good book, but i take reading by spells, if that makes any sense. lol i like to read mystery, like a who done it movie and i also like to read true stories about people or different things like that. and i also like to read horror books. but i cannot wait horror films at the theater's anymore or at home. lol but reading a horror book doesn't bother me at all. lol isn't that weird? i am currently still reading the book titled "Heart Sick", and it is about a female serial killer. i am almost finished reading that book as well, and i need to take the time to finish reading it. one of my favorite authors is Mitch Albom, and he needs to be putting out another book for all of his book fans here soon. i think that i have read all of his books, except for the articles that he writes on sports. i am not interested in reading anything like that. enjoy your book! take care and have a beautiful afternoon.

Hi TnWoman! I know what you mean about taking reading in spells. When my children were smaller it was that way for me. I read alot of different genres but i really try to stay away from the Harlequin and the mushy romance books. The book you're reading now sounds very interesting, i will have to find it. The closest book store is about 90 miles from me, so i have to plan a trip to go. Usually i buy about 8 books when i go to make the trip worthwhile. I am not a big fan of horror movies, but i can read the horror stories also. It is kinda weird, but like i say everyone has their own way of doing things. Thanks for the comment. You have a great day.

It is hard to get the time to read for me sometimes also. I have to stay up late after my children have gone to bed. For me that is the best time to read, and i enjoy it. Let me know how the book goes that you are reading now. Thanks for your comment. I look forward to hearing about your book. Thanks.

I like stories that eventually make a point about something, like the problem with religion or something satirically written. Just good stories don't do it for me, I need a better purpose for why it was written. David Sedaris is entertaining and an easy read.

I think there will always be problems with religion in one form or another. Everyone has their own thoughts and beliefs. I do appreciate your comment. It is nice to see what others find interesting to read. I will have to see if i can find a book by David Sedaris. Thanks.

i do enjoy reading and indeed, i cannot give you one favorite author. currently i am liking dan brown's books because they try to incorporate science and religion, which is no small feat. there are other authors, of course. i just could not think whom to start. lol

Yes, I read a lot and as any reader can tell you its impossible to pick a favorite author or kind of book. I read everything except dirty books or someone personal books.

I'm a huge reader, and I have no particular genre that I like best - I'll read just about anything I can get my hands on. My bookshelves are full of just about everything - history, romance, chick lit, thrillers, mysteries, crime, true crime, fantasy, paranormal, theory and science, literature and classics. Sometimes I'll read several books in a row from a particular genre (in the past week, I've read three crime books), and at other times I'll swap and change between different books.

Hi dmrone! I absolutely LOVE to read, and do so every chance I get. Right now I have shelves full of books that I've read, and numerous ones that I've even managed to get autographed. Like you I like to read mysteries, and several other genres, but my favorite would have to be true stories, especially murder/mystery, some love stories, biographies, and novels too. I have several favorite authors ranging from Fredrick Lenz, Dave Pelzer, Mitch Albom, and Nicholas Sparks, but my all time favorite is Ann Rule because she used to be a detective and she writes about a lot of the cases she used to work on. If you like mysteries I would recommend her to anyone and everyone as she has a way of keeping your interest from the very beginning and she's had a number of books which I call one-sitting books because you can literally get so enthralled by the story, that you've read it cover to cover without even realizing it. LOL! I would also say the same for Nicholas Sparks who has a style all his own and his books are also loosely based upon his own life experiences. If you ever get a chance to attend his book signings I would recommend going because he's extremely friendly, a wonderful speaker, and even better writer! But thanks for starting this discussion. I'm eager to see what other people say to this as well. In the meantime, happy reading!! ~Dee~
