    So I know most of you know how to read...

    So you might even read books. What do you like to read? Favorite authors?

    I am a big reader, and I am always looking for new authors to try out.

    I am a huge Lord of the Rings geek, so I have read the Hobbit, all 3 lord of the rings and the Silmarillion.

    I also read some other fantasy, Piers Anthony is one of my favourite authors. I read a couple of books in his Xanth series. My favourite Piers Anthony book is On a Pale Horse. It is actually what the show "Dead Like Me" is based on.

    And then I do your typical Tom Clancy. I have read most of his "Net Force" series and I have read Rainbow 6

    And then there is a lot of political theory that I have been into such as Thomas Hobbes' leviathan, I have also read alot of John Locke, John Stuart Mill, Marx, all that sort of thing.

    I'm a sucker for Dean R. Koontz. I also enjoy reading Peter Popper's books, he's a psychologist, and a really wise man. He gives lectures all around the world.
    I doubt you could find his books translated to english, at least the ones he wrote for entertainment.
    P. Howard (Jenő Rejtő) is a favourite of mine as well, you should try and find some of his books in english. He has a pretty unique style of writing, with lots of ironical humour.

    I wish I had the time to read, I have about 10 books on my shelves I'd like to read...

    The Grapes Of Wrath by John Steinbeck, it's a beautiful story about a family that needs work during the dust bowl. I also read the biography of Kurt Cobain and Frank Zappa, the one about Cobain is the most shocking imo.

    and others, i liked the harry potter books :)
    I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

    i'm currently reading a book about a bunch of studies on the human brain and what changes it for the better and for the worse and why. It focusses on foods, diet, metabolism, sex, exercise, sleep, puzzles, tv and so on. It goes on to explain about different chemical reactions in the brain, optimism, pessimism, depression, emotional intelligence, anxiety, motivation and a bunch of other stuff on a bio chemical level. Theres loads more thats just the first part, its a really fascinating book.

    I'm also a fantasy geek, but I love to read books of human anatomy (but only with nice pictures of skeletons, muscles, terrible diseases and so on), fashion and that kind of stuff. Nowadays I read a bit less than what I used to, maybe because of school.

    Okay I loved Dead Like Me, so I will have to check out that book.

    I never have watched/read any LOTR stuff. It doesn't appeal to me at all, which is weird since I like fantasy and science fiction a lot.

    I like books about the human body too. I am really interested in books studying human bodies post-mortem, that sort of thing. If you haven't read Stiff (by Mary Roach), I highly suggest it. It's really interesting, and the author definitely has a sense of humor as well.

    you'd really like fables. books with pictures are way better than books with just words.
