So Many Books So Little Time

I love to read. I really, really love to read. Give me a book, just about any book and I am a happy camper. I have loved to read ever since I discovered that all those funny little marks actually made words. I can read almost any type of book. Yes, I said almost. Sadly, I am not a fan of Science Fiction. I don't know why but, it is what it is. Give me history, romance, murder, mayhem, ghost, and just about anything and I will read it cover to cover. If I start I book I always finish it, even if I don't like it. Why? I keep telling myself it will get better. Besides I like to know how the story ends. What type of book do you find fascinating?

I like novels, mysteries,fiction, non-fiction. I love Ann Rule and Tammi Hoag among others and as you say, I always finish a book. I have been surprised when a book I didn't particularly like, picked up and I loved it after a slow start.

@hazysue I too love to read and almost always finish a book for the same reason as i want to know how it is going to end. I might not finish it right away, but i will finish it someday. I only have a problem with the book that is the bane of my existence for a book, "Gone with the Wind" have tried it many times and will get to the end some day!

Just like you I love to read too. I mostly prefer to read about stories written by Paulo Coelho and Elizabeth Gilbert. I love adventures, true stories, romance, comedy, travels. I do not have any hard copies here to read. What I do is I just download books from the internet and read it when I have free time outside or when I am riding in a public utility jeepney.

I like to read too. Not ghost stories and science fiction, though have read some. Historical romance includes, jean plaidy, norah lofts, mary stewart(merlin trilogy),georgette heyer ...actually so many. Lets do one genre at a time. You said you'll give me some authors in the historical romance category.

@HazySue I liked it for some odd reason. Then again I lived in the middle of nowhere so, so when I was able to read something I grabbed whatever was convenient.I think it probably started my quest for knowledge, and why I'm able to spout off random facts.

I also like a variety of types of books. Unlike you, however, I don't finish every book I read. Often I don't even finish the ones I like because I spend so much time online that I often forget about the book I'm reading and after a while I find I've forgotten what it was about.

I love to read and honestly many times I do not have time. There are so many books to read, but I have no option. Always have an important job and my hobby does not remain quite so long. When the book is so interesting I read for several hours. When part of a series is always the last book in the series I reading it at slowly because I know that the story ends like that.
