    When not reading engineering books, I mainly read sci-fi, horror, action books. E.g. star wars, stephen king etc....

    I started reading when I was very young. There have been times when I've stopped or slowed down, but books are very important to me. Some faves:

    Lord of the Rings
    The Cybergypsies
    Anything by Paul Theroux
    The Anglo Saxon Chronicles
    Ovid's Metamorphoses (I recommend it to you)
    Magician by Raymond E. Feist
    The Sovereign Stone Trilogy by Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman
    Dickens/Thomas Hardy ....
    Assorted poetry
    An occasional bit of philosopy, most of which is interesting and often very annoying.
    Linux magazines when I can be bothered to buy them

    I have about 500 books - mostly paperbacks and most of them not in my flat.

    None of the above categories apply to me... Though I have read each one of those genres I don't particularly lean towards a single category or feel strongly about it...

    I like reading cookbooks and experimenting at the kitchen. Reading chessbooks is also a great past time for me... Books related to my job are also important to me and I do enjoy reading them...

    Sorry about the apparent lack of choices in the poll; I was starting to think I was overloading it with selections as it was. Though I should have at least put in non-fiction and other categories.

    It seems that most people here like the sci/fi fantasy angle

    Some of my faves:

    Anything by Tom Clancy and Micheal Chriton (spelling)
    All the Dan Brown books (Da Vinci Code, etc)
    Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
    theres lots - I try to read soemthing everynight, or also good when on a bus or train
