I work at a library and read a lot. I rarely read only one book at
a time. My interests vary and shift so I read about many different
Current topics of interest as of 9/2014 :
Cat & dog behavior
I also read lots of novels. Dystopian / post apocalyptic novels are
always intriguing but I read in just about any genre available. (I
don't read many romances. There are a few exceptions, but they're
often too formulaic.)
Give me a good solid story with believable characters who do
interesting things that's written well and in a unique way and I
will read the hell out of that book, short story, poem,
A few novels / graphic novels I've read multiple times:
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Johnny the Homicidal Maniac by Jhonen Vasquez
Lenore by Roman Dirge
Just about anything by Neil Gaiman - LOVE me some Gaiman!!!
