OK, many books.
OK, seriously, everything what is written by the English philosopher A.C. Grayling and I like also Brian Fox and his newest book written together with Jeff Forshaw "The Quantum Universe: Everything that can Happen does Happen", they keep telling that quantum theory is VERY easy, ???, maybe for them it's easy...
I read also something what nobody is reading but it sells like crazy, badly written, (I should be ashamed reading it... :-)), "Fifty Shades of Grey".
I read also books written by Frank McCourt "Angela's Ashes" and later something like "Thit's".
I'm still reading a book written by the son of James Herriot about James Herriot (maybe you remember the famous vet from Yorkshire?)....
I love also music dictionaries, like "The dictionary of Composers and their Music"....
I don't tell anymore...
Yeah, you've said much. Pretty impressed with your collection, specially the one in the brackets I haven't read it yet, m gonna grab a copy now!
:-) :-) :-) :_0 Oh, mistake, :-) :-) :-) done :-)
I'm a compulsive reader, I read anything I can get my hands on. I particularly enjoy biographies (usually of rock musicians, actors or sports figures), science fiction/horror, and action/adventure stories.
I work for a newspaper so obviously I read the paper every day (several of them, in fact) and my wife and I subscribe to a number of magazines. There's always something to read lying around on my coffee table!
Anything and everything.
When I'm at home cooking and have to wait for something to heat up I read whatever is within reach. A newspaper, flyers, take out menus; even the food packages.
When I'm out I absorb billboards, advertisements in windows and on cars, road signs, license plates, receipts of things purchased, etc.
When it comes to books I'm a little more picky. Maybe even a bit snobby. Fiction has my preference; I've never really been able to get into the non-fiction stuff, except for philosophy. Within fiction I try to stick with what would be called literature with capital L. That's just because I don't like to read books just for the sake of being entertained. There always has to be something more to get out of it, whether intellectually or emotionally (and ideally a combination of both).
Favorite genres are children's literature, modernism, modern American literature, postmodern fiction and short stories. Newest addition is East Asian fiction, also the first time I really find joy in reading poetry.
I have my reference books on horticulture, insects, art, biology, and history that I keep in my bookshelves
I have my mysteries, crime novels, horror genre, and thrillers for quick, entertaining reads that I borrow/return from community sources.
That's almost everything. How do you manage to keep your interest diversified?
I have a lot of interests, and I LOVE to read- about 2-3 books a week. I am only working part-time as I'm nearing retirement, so I've more hours to devote to it. I also read instead of watching TV.
I read everything from inspirational, metaphysical, motivational books to Sci-Fi and Fantasy to psychology textbooks. Used to read a lot of mystery but I'm basically a huge fantasy fan. I even wrote a hub about it.

I love self-help, personal development and inspirational books.
I like reading true stories and materials on murder, crimes, haunting, inspirational, motivational, quick pick me up, self-help and some hilarious stuff. Money matters at times but not always. I'm not a big fan of sci-fi and other fictional books.

I want to write a novel, but I want to know what people are reading these days so I know what genre to write in and how to write my vision. What do you guys consider a good book?

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go." - Dr Seuss (Oh, The Places You'll Go!) What does this quote say to you?...

I love to read but got kind of lazy looking for books to read. Can you tell me what you're reading and would you recommend it.I am reading "busting loose from the money game" by Robert Scheinfeld. Kind of a radical way to look at finances, weird some might say but interesting in my...

I just want an idea of how often you read, how long do you read, and what kind of books/writing interests you the most. But being that this is the "Books, Literature, and Writing" section, most people here probably read more than the average person.Also, how much do you think the average...
