Alex K. I am generally reading Buddhist literature and poetry these days. Along with that I find myself glancing into cooking and gardening books. Children's literature has become a renewed interest with the baby on board.
Alex M. I was fired from my first bookstore job for reading when I was supposed to be shelving.
Alison R. Some people like to read books that reflect their lives, but not me. I am always looking for the other, whether it be from another country, gender or time. Most of what I read is fiction. I need the tale to be well crafted and care given to the language. My favourite books are the ones that I argue with, just like my friends.
Anna K. Reader, writer, bookseller, spy.
Well, maybe not that last one.
Cameron C. My name is Cameron, and you ought to read what I read.
Cheryl R. Like slipping into a comfortable pair of shoes, I have a tendency to re-read my favorites.
Ian W. Books and I are like fishing and whiskey, in that one is usually improved by the other. On the other hand, I also have a tendency to lose books, to give them away because I love them so much, to dog ear pages and crease their spines.
Joey P. The simplest thing to say is that I am a voracious reader. An average week of my reading goes through about two or three novels. Fantasy is my first love, of course, but I try not to limit myself to a single one thing. Anyway, here's some stuff I've read, loved, and want you to read, too.
John E. Alternating between poetry, science, history, fiction, cultural studies and spirituality with the occasional mystery or science fiction thrown in, eclectic is probably the best description of my reading.
John P. My favorite books are by writers who toy with different voices, genres and structures: Joyce, Borges, Brautigan, Nabokov, Spicer, Bolano.
Linda G. I'll try reading just about anything once, but fiction is my first love. Great character studies, alternating voices, complex narratives and a touch of metaphor make for me, the perfect reading experience. Oh, and a cat for the lap is the final touch!
Margaret S. Apart from Roaming the Sinai before Abraham, I am best known for my knowledge of children's books and contemporary literature.
Mia W. I like neither pina coladas nor getting caught in the rain, but am into yoga.
Michele T. Here are the books I love!
Pam S. It's difficult to remember a time when there weren't books and the love of them in my life. My greatest joy was the Christmas gift that I knew contained that new hardcover carrying with it its smell, feel and prospect of hours spent delving into some new and magical place.
Sus L. The first time I chose to not finish a book I was eight-years-old and quit 50 pages into Playing Beatie Bow, a cryptic and horrendously creepy junior reader about ghoulish little girls and time travel to filthy 1870's Australia. The accusing ghost of Beatie Bow has haunted me ever since.
