All I can say is I love them kilts and this series is a must read .

I read just about anything. Sci-fi, Horror, Comedy, Fantacy, History, Occult, Documentary. I love short story collections of sci-fi and horror (short attention span).

And I only buy the magazines for the articles! wink.gif

Neenron, it's a thumping good read - unputdownable (ahem). Not particularly scary, more gripping (like the Blair Witch Project).

KC, my fave Koontz novel is 'Strangers'. A good read. But I started to find Koontz to be a bit biggotted somehow, and stopped reading him.

I forgot my favorite. A serial thing, about 13 books, called "Traveler" by D.B. Drumm. Think dime novel Mad Max ripoff.

Well, LB, you know what I think of bigots! disgusted.gif

Still, I've just finished Shadowfires, so I'm on to a new

author. original.gif

I've read all about 4 or 5 of Stephen King's books, my two favorite of his are Pet Semetary and Bag of Bones, but I like all of them.

I've got most of Dean Koontz's book waiting to be read I like Fear Nothing, Seize the Night and Phantoms the best so far.

I read a lot of Sci-fi one of my favorite authors is Alan Dean Foster some of his books are funnier than heck, my favorite has to be Jed the Dead, Cat*A*Lyst, Quozl, Glory Lane and The Damned series. Although I think The Damned series gives a lot of credit to the imagination what aliens might really want to do with the aliens known as humans.

I also read the magazines for their articles. wink.gif

I indulge my geeky side by reading some computer manuals.

My favourite Books are "The Vampire Chronicals" by Anne Rice.

I am such the huge Anne Rice fan!!!

Also, I read a lot of fantasy, mythology, occult, poetry and I also love the classic novels. Authors besides Anne Rice I like are: H.P. Lovecraft, J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Allen Poe, W.B. Yeats, and Shakespeare (my absolute favorite!) just to name a few.

As for my magazine weakness...I subscribe to Astronomy, Discover, Scientific American, Realms of Fantasy, and Psychology today.

As someone who loves to read; this list only hits the tip of the iceberg. user posted image

ill read any non-fiction book. i like certain classic fictional books, but they have to be really good to keep my interest. mostly, i just go to the thrift store and find something i know very little about and read a book on it. ill do the same with any of the classics that i haven't read yet. i never pick up a useless book though- one without knowledge to be gained. i despise detective books, horror, or any meaningless fiction. come to think of it, the only fiction books i like are ones about social issues: 1984, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, Fahrenheit 451, etc.

i keep filling in the blanks in my knowledge. i am the kind of person who will read a 2500 page nursing textbook because i have to know what nursing is all about. i read extremely fast and with insane comprehension. i should be a researcher.

I'm a big fan of classic literature, so I don't read a lot of "new stuff". I liked the List of 7 by Mark Frost, though. My favorite books are:

Count of Monte Cristo (UNABRIDGED!!!!!!!!!) by Dumas

Shogun, Tai Pan, and King Rat; by Clavell

Treasure Island by Stevenson

Through the Looking Glass by Carroll/Dodgeson

Le Morte D' Artur by Mallory

Don Quixote by Cervantes

Oh, and of course Harry Potter! I was wrong not to throw some propers at it!

As for magazines, I read Golf Digest and Newtype (THE anime magazine).

For the articles, of course!

i'm a fan of the classics myself, although I dont limit myself to them. I love the Harry Potter series...

However, my favorite book of all time(since I was 11) is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. What can I say? I'm a sucker for period dramas...

I am also a huge fan of swashbucklers so Alexandre Dumas' works are faves, as well as , R.L. Stevenson of Kidnapped and Treasure Island.

Others:

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracey Chevalier

If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor- an autobiography of Bruce Campbell

Neil Gaiman.

He also co-wrote the novel, with Terry Pratchett, Good Omens, which is the funniest book I have ever read.

And believe me. Being a member of this forum, it's up against some pretty stiff opposition.

Personally, I worship at the alters of Stephen King and James Herbert but I'll pretty much read anything
