I tend to read like I do everything else. All over the place. My office, den, living room, bathroom, bedroom all have books. All have bookmarks resting in some places that I may have left ten minutes or ten months ago. I am a voracious reader, but will give up on books that take me no where. I don't read free books on Kindle, although I might if time stood still and nothing was going on.
My selves are a mix of classic, young adult, and adult books of almost every genre. Sorry majority of romance, no romance books. Tried writing it once, killed of both characters in the first chapter, true story.
I have a reading crush on Jim Butcher (Dresden Files, didn't get into the other series yet), R.A. Silvatore (Drizzt series-es there are a ton of books), complete sets of Poe, Shakespeare, Bukowski (still need a couple books). I tend to have books on paranormal and things that go bump in the night. People might find it odd that I have two bibles. One given to me by a very close friend. The other is the family bible that I inherited from my Grandfather that contains our family history.
I have some books going back into the late 1800's and some books in languages I can't read.
I like books. The feel, the ability to know exactly how much is left, the smell of old pages, and the rustling noise it makes when you turn a page. I like Kindle, but if I read a book that I loved on it, I'd go buy it in paper.
Oh yeah. I also have my book.
Hell to Pay. You can get it in e-book or paper. Seeing myself on a bookshelf makes me happy.
