I love a good read and have hundreds of books that I've read more than a couple of times. They are mostly all horror, science fiction and fantasy really. Most kids today wont read a book unless it can fit on their iPhone or iPad .
The rocks in my head fill the holes in yours.
It is easy to spout the wisdom of others when you have none of your own.
Insult me all you like but remember that i have a sword.
yeah i do believe that reading is a slowly dying past time. i believe that it is not TV shows and movies to blame as much as gaming. Video games are becoming larger,some are more complex, have good story lines and have very high immersion factors now. But that being said there obviously is still a good market in books with the popularity of the e-readers like the kindle and the nook. i believe that nothing beats a good book.
I have asked this in another topic before and got some great suggestions but i was wondering if someone could recommend a good book or author for me. I am looking for a fantasy/ horror story with the classic christian good vs evil battle as in heaven and hell. I really enjoyed the Word and the Void series by terry brooks. Something kinda like that i guess.
If I am having trouble coming up with a new series of books to read and want something similar to what I have already read and liked I go to Amazon and type in a book I read and liked go to it's "page". Usually under the book description is the "customers who bought this item also bought" area and you can usually find similar books. Just click on em and look the descriptions and reviews till you find something appealing. When I looked at Terry Brooks Running With The Demon there were several other books/authors who popped up, Terry Goodkind among them whom my son really likes and keeps trying to get me to read. Amazon will also give you recommendations based on your wish list and things you've looked at in the past and they don't do half bad.
