Umm...yeah I like to read authors who create their own worlds and extremely long story lines. I read to entertain myself and I like to get lost in fantasies.
When I'm not reading random fantasy novels I have my head buried in Zen philosophy.
Zen and the Japanese culture, D.T. Suzuki
Living by Zen, Suzuki
The Roaring Stream: A new Zen reader, Foster & Shoemaker
Blowing Zen, Ray Brooks
The Zen teachings of Bhodidharma translated by Red Pine
And my list keeps growing in this category...
