    Sorry about the apparent lack of choices in the poll; I was starting to think I was overloading it with selections as it was.
    Don't be sorry

    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...

    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?

    Work documents do not count, and I'm not sure if menu's and TV Guide should be either, though a good menu is often a real pageturner

    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.

    Good book, and good manga.

    Both good reads. You might enjoy reading The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe. The writing style is very unusual, but it mentions Neal Cassady who was the inspiration for Dean Moriarty in On the Road.

    I keep reading about Kerouac, and would like to share this with you. I listen to these from time to time.

    Thanks for the link, and for pointing out Tom Wolfe. I've been meaning to check out his work, but you know how it goes... so much to read, so little time
