    Books you read?

    What kind of books do you all read?
    My personal favorite genre is SciFi/fantasy, though I think that could be separated into two categories.
    I just finished reading the new Robert Jordan novel, Knife of Dreams; #11 in a series.
    My favorite authors include Terry Pratchett, David Gemmel, John Ringo, among others.

    I'd have to say that I read more SciFi/fantacy than any other genre via authors such as Pratchett. But I like mind provoking/philosophical novels of any genre, such as "catch 22" (currently reading), "catcher in the rye" and "curious incident of the dog in the night-time". Other than that I read manga (Fruits Basket, Love Hina), though these are rather light, and have pictures, so they ain't that serious

    Other than fiction I read books on maths, science, and computers.

    Sci-Fi/Fantasy here too

    I'm currently working on Robert Jordan (currently on A Path of Daggers). I'm a huge fan of Raymond E. Feist as well.

    I've read Terry Brooks (Sword of Shannara), David Farland (Runelords), Terry Pratchett, and so on and so forth. I've also read most of the known Star Wars books, excluding the X-Wing series and the New Jedi Order series (I've read some of it, but not all).

    That said, I do also read a lot about religion, so I do read some non-fiction.
