hi lmfisher666! the psychoartist also enjoys literature of the true crime variety, as well as mystery and suspense novels...i like to contemplate the psychology of the crime, as well as patterns of behavior in human nature...i think too that the fact that there is a bit of a creepy or scary element in these books makes them more fun! happy reading!

Hello Lmfisher666 I enjoy reading non-fiction books about crimes that happened, the consequences of such crimes for all involved, and how the person(s) involved were caught and brought to justice. I also like to read about what motivated the person to commit crimes. One of my favorite books like this is, In Cold Blood, by Truman Capote. Peace

I love reading true crime stories. They are much more interesting, and it is fascinating to know what motivates this crime-doers to do all that stuff. I think it is scary too, but it's much more real than fictional crime stories, which may be thrilling, but still, they are fake.

There is nothing wrong with reading any type of true story. Its always the persons choice to read what ever they want. Don't let people bother you with such things as your choice. I like to read true stories. I just got done reading book "102 minutes the untold story of the fight to survive inside the twin towers". That was scary to read and see pictures. but I've been waiting to read about 9/11. I checked it out from my library weeks ago.
