I've always liked to read, especially Young Adults fiction---realistic, contemporary. Do you like to read? If so, what kind of books do you like to read?

I think that is the Hunger Game series. I don't read fantasy, so I haven't read the series. I read books like Sarah Dessen. Have you heard of her?

Forgive me for being persnickety and particular, but The Hunger Games series is Science Fiction, not fantasy. I'm a bit obnoxious about the difference between the two.

Yes, i love to read true stories. I've read "please love me by keith miller" it was nerve rocking. It was the most beautiful and inspiring book i have ever read. The character was really pitiful and so damaged but GOD was their for her. God fixed her life , all the pieces was back into it's origin. It was really awesome!

Reading novels is a favorite way for relaxation for me. I used to read all kinds of novels, comedies, historical, love stories, and so on. I still have a collection of the classical novels. But, these days, with my job keeping me so busy, I rarely get to reading novels. I would relax browsing through newspapers and magazines only.

I'm a high fantasy novel addict. Those would be the fantasies that take place in a made-up world like Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia. I just love a good vs. evil showdown in a new world, and I love mythology and mythical creatures. I'll read other books, but I definitely have a genre bias. I lean more fiction than non-fiction and more speculative than realistic.

Mostly I like to read hindu mythology. Apart form that I like to read short stories written by Premchand and Jai Shankar Prasad (may be you don't know them, they were famous hindi writer.). I like to read kids' stuffs though I am not kid. I don't like to read adult novels or stories.

I do also like to read, I find it really relaxing in the evening, to sit down in the sofa or in bed and just read. I actually haven't liked reading always, before when I was still in school I hated it, mostly because they always say which books you have to read and mostly those aren't the really interesting books. Once school was over I didn't read any book, just because in school I was always forced to read books that didn't interest me at all. But now several years ago I did pick up a book and started reading, and a whole new world opened for me, there are many books out there, that are really interesting and can fascinate me. Since then I'm always always reading a book. When I go on holiday I will always pack a book, for in the evenings, or for in the plane. When I go somewhere and I know I'll have to wait, I often have a book with me. I mostly like police and detective books, but I do read several sorts of books.

I like reading. I like to read magazines and novels by my favorite authors like John Grisham, Sidney Sheldon, Danieklle Steel, etc.. I always bring a book with me when I go out of the house to ease my boredom in traffic, long lines at bills payment.
