Just a few examples of the types of books I like and why:
Brave New World is probably my favorite book, but if I'm going to
be completely honest I tend to read it as more of a comedy. The
unbridled hedonism of the upper class amuses me.
Shantaram: its great adventure story, especially since it's loosely
based on the authors life, it really makes your life seem trite.
Unless of course your life is just way more awesome than mine for
The Alchemist: it's a fun short book that reminds you that
everything will be ok in the end.
Anything by Isaac Asimov: I like sci-fi!
Honestly anything, I can get really into mostly any movie put in
front of me.
How I Met Your Mother, Game of Thrones, and Doctor who are the
shows I'm currently following. I've also been known to enjoy
Arrested Development, Futurama, Californication, Whose Line is it
If they play at Firefly or Bonnaroo I'm probably into them.
Cajun is my favorite, really anything spicy. Sriracha is
practically a religion to my friends and myself.
