My favourite book genres are both horror and fantasy, even at 35 I am quite happy to admit that I love the Harry Potter franchise and have read and got every book in the set, and I am looking forward to the 7th and final. It's a book I can escape in and I love books of wizardry, spells etc... I also love horror, and Richard Laymon is one of my favourite authors, he has a sublime collection of horror stories and I've read a lot of his, his books I can read time and time again. I love to be able to escape into books and leave reality for a while! Helps me to relax too

Yay, I'm really looking forward to the final Harry Potter too! Sad, but true, not impressed my friends are being rude enough to get married the day it's released, might have to hide up the back of the church to read, lol.

Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson - this is the only book of hers that I have read but it was moving - I am not usually moved in this way. I intend to purchase a few more on Amazon.

I have to admit, other than Harry Potter, I have really enjoyed really trashy romance novels at the moment, purely because they're so predicable and take so little thinking about. Have to read a lot for uni so like to read anything that's pure escapism. Have also read a couple of books by Paulo Coehlo lately, still undecided what I really think of his work though.

Hi! I just started reading Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. I am hoping to start a new business this year, possibly two, so someone on Mylot recommended that I read this book and others by Mr. Kiyosaki. I have only read a small portion, but he makes a lot of sense! I am looking forward finishing it! :-)

not my cup of tea but thanks for you comment. Business seems to me a practical matter not academic or literary but each to their own all the best urban
