So, I know we have a spot for our favorite books etc in our profile, but It hought maybe we could start a little thread about the books/authors/genres that we like.

Im really getting into the HDF arena right now, I really enjoy reading material by Poppy Z. Brite (we named our puppy after her), Kathe Koja, and Caitlin R. Kiernan.

Im currently reading both Interview with a vampire (Ive never read the vampire chronicles), and "Murder of Angels" by Caitlin R Kiernan.

Depending on my mood dependson what I pick up.
I have tried twice and failed to completely read "House of Leaves", but one of these days I will complete it.

I know we have several writers on the site, so what do you like to read, who is on your current read list, what genre do you write in?

"House of Leaves" is a great book. I love the layout. It's so interesting, but it can make for a hard read.

"A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey is a great book. I read it the summer before last, when it first came out, and I couldn't put it down. He just recently gained recognition for that book, and now it's the hot new read. He just had his second book "My Friend Leonard" published... I have seen it at the book stores, but I haven't read it yet.

i always recommend Tom Robbins. he is incredibly intelligent and witty and his books are just so much fun to read and in the middle of it all he has these declarations of incredible brilliancy. amazing books. my favorite is "Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates."

i'm a huge fan of neil gaiman.. i'm not sure which book is my favorite.. but off the top of my head, i loved 'neverwhere'.. and i'm still eager to pick up 'american gods'.


i'd love to see him interviewed for the site, hint hint.


currently, i'm re-reading 'memoirs of a geisha'. i read it almost four years ago.. and since the movie is coming out, i want to refresh before i see it.

in a related note i am reading simone de beauvoir right now, because she was romantically involved with sartre. HOT PHILOSOPHIC ACTION.

i have a few favorites, but i'll read just about anything besides romance and sci fi..


my favorite reading material is horror and true crime..


does anyone ever get a reaction from people when they find out you actually read? it's like half the population doesn't read anymore. someone will see me with a book (a big one without pictures) and are like.. whoa.. you read?


it amazes me.


keep rockin the books!

Unfortunately I don't get to read all that many books these days. I work in publishing so the majority of my reading time is spent with the funny books. I end up reading and rereading Philip K. Dick stories whenever I get a chance though. Still waiting for a decent post-Blade Runner adaptation.

Oh, it's a comic book company and I get everything they publish, so there's no need for robbing. I have to read a bunch of the stuff as possible for reference. Plus I enjoy it most of the time.

i have a terrible time with people just not being the least bit interested in reading. it kills me. b/c when i read a good book, i want to share it with people...but they don't care. it's like their eyes go glossy the exact moment i mention reading. lol.

My favorite authors are the ones I grew up with -- Bradbury, Vonnegut, Bach. J.K. Rowling...I'm obsessed with Harry Potter. James Frey, Palahniuk, Orson Scott Card, David Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs...I read anything I can get my hands on. It helps that I grew up with a librarian for a mom :D
