That would be history. Especially World War II and military history.

Ooooh you like WWII, so do I. Have you read "Mother Night" by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. It's my favorite story that deals with World War II. The descriptions of the Dresden incident are intense.

Fantasy and fiction. Its what I usually check first when buying books. If i can't find any I go for other books so long as it has interesting story. I have read a variety of genre. Mystery, biographies, history... because the stories in it are interesting. Some were books given to me. Some I just happen to read because I can't anything to read at all.

I read many different kinds of books, and I like to read fiction as well as non-fiction. When I read fiction I usually prefer horror stories and I have read many different ones, I especially like psychological horror stories. Sometimes I also like to read historical novels and I am reading one at the moment. It has been a while since I have read any biographies or autobiographies, but I like that, too. When I read non-fiction I usually read about psychology, psychiatry, religions, new age, art and other countries/cultures.

I like biographies since it will to a test how the writer will give justice to one's life story. Moreover, biographies can unravel what we don't know in someone's life. Biographies also stands for good examples to us.

I mostly read fiction stories. I especially love historical fiction because I really like history but the author can really bring the period to life and make it more interesting. I really like Ann Rinaldi because she writes such excellent historical fiction books.

Satire for the most part. I'm a Kurt Vonnegut nut so I suppose that I like autobiographical influenced fiction. It just comes out so natural , like a confession. Science fiction is a personal favorite and even further, hard science fiction. Sci-fi writing that is heavily influenced by real current science or technology , be it commonplace or experimental.

i like biographies because you may think you know a particular celebrity and then you read their story and realise they are human just like us non-celbrities. I also love romance, like pride and prejudice and basically anything that has a tiwst in it.
