I mostly read horror but I also like thriller and war/military.
11-07-2005 #23Sorry about the apparent lack of choices in the poll; I was starting to think I was overloading it with selections as it was.
It is difficult to find more encompassing categories for books than the ones you proposed... It is just that I am a very, very strange person
However, let me display some of the books I own:
A New Way to Cook by Sally Schneider
Panera Bread's cookbook (awesome for those of you who like to bake... I do! It is very rewarding and chicks dig it [ "Yeah, I baked that nice sourdough you are eating... Come to papa!"] But seriously though, baking is very cool...
The Goal by E. Goldratt (sp?)
A huge stack of Linux books (yes, I have some Linux books...) A huge stack of chessbooks... I have also "I Robot" by Assimov...
I dunno... We all have different tastes...-D-

I believe there are a couple of other authors that wrote Conan as well. I just can't remember there names right now.
I have also read Moby Dick.
The Pathfinder series by James Fenimore Cooper.
Everything by Clive Cussler.
The Ninja series by Eric Lustbader.
Everything by Peter Benchley.
I have read quite a bit more than this.
Do you get the idea that I like to read?
Do technical documents and Data Sheets of Test Equipment Count as Reading? if they do i'm an avid reader (*work*) if not then i'd have to limit it to Restaurant Menus and the TV GuideDesktop: Dual Xeon 2.8 GHz 1.5 GB RAM Ubuntu/XP Pro

Where's the "Almost anything I can get my hands on provided I've got time" option?
Seriously, though, I used to read almost nothing but Sci-fi and fantasy, but in the past couple of years, I've started reading a ton of different things (last couple of books I read were "Cosa Nostra", the history of the Sicillian mafia, and "Travels" by Michael Crichton). I'm usually reading three to four books at a time. My favourite book is still "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac (I've read it quite a few times), and "Catch-22" by Joseph Heller comes a close second.
Edit: forgot to mention "The Art of Travel" by Alain de Botton.

I keep reading about Kerouac, and would like to share this with you. I listen to these from time to time.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
