What sort of book is it that interests you most? I love spy stories, the suspence makes me to continue reading (especially one that involves cool gadgets and weopans).I also like to read about detective and murder stories(maybe it'll help me commit the perfect crime).What about you guys?

Murder mysteries? I simply love em too. In many murder stories I've read, you always have a prime suspect for the murder at the beginning of the story and as you continue reading you be surprised to find out he's really innocent and at that point our curiosity sky rockets. But what do you think of spy stories like James Bond?

From the list , just espionage I don't like. Horror, I like Stephen King books. Adventure : too many to list here and many cross genre Science fiction : Dune (just one, if I started to list, would take a loooong time).

I see that you have a lengthy list but what's keeping you away from horrow stories? You get freaked out or feel that some thingy's waiting to get you?

I like them all to be honest. I love mysteries and suspence, sci-fi and fantasy, romance..it all depends on how it is written. If it will keep my interest then I'll read it. Usually I'll go in spurts reading a bunch of mystery and then once I'm tired of those I'll go to fantasy or romance, then switch again. I have very ecclectic tastes when it comes to books.

You're right, the only that matters is that it should be interesting, but I think you're sort of wierd because I've never heard of anyone liking to read fantasy and mystery simultaneously. Me never read fantasy, what's interesting in it is a real mystery! Can you say why you what you find interesting in fantasy?

Sci-Fi and fantasy. Hands down. I love Orson Scott Card, Robert Heinlein, George Martin, Terry Goodkind. I recommend everybook written by all of the aforementioned. A friend is trying to get me into Stephen King, and his stuff is really well written, but I feel dirty for liking it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Science fiction is some what interesting( but sometimes you get bragged about smart fibres) I don't really get what you mean, can you explain what exactly you mean by "dirty for liking" ?
