Steven Tyler (steventyler) | 36 comments I tend to read: Histories, Mysteries, and Biographies but I also like time-travel books and if I'm writing on a subject like ghosts, I'll read ghost books.


message 19: by Kandice (last edited Apr 29, 2021 02:20PM) (new)

Kandice | 1281 comments I'll read almost anything that catches my interest. A pretty cover, a recommendation, a review, almost anything can hook me. I actively avoid romance, but I've even read (and loved) a few of those. There are books that I love for the way they are written that has nothing to do with the plot and vice versa.

I try not to limit myself so I don't miss out on anything.


message 20: by Christine (new)

Christine Indorf | 2162 comments I give anything a try. This year I wanted to give fantasy a try and fell in love with it. My main reads are Christian Fiction but I am so glad I branched out and discovered new and exciting books!!


message 21: by Arnold (new)

Arnold Kanarek | 19 comments My first love was detective mysteries and then I branched out.

Christine | 115 comments I seem to be reading more non-fiction and autobiographies lately.


message 25: by Marco (new)

Marco I like horror, espionage, war (WWII mainly) and true crime, sometimes a biography and I've grown fond of thrillers mixed with faction or set in an alternate history.

Angela (CATS | 8 comments I also love Historical Fiction. James Michener, Lisa See, Nadia Hashimi and Ken Follett just to mention a few of my favorites.


message 27: by Angela (CATS (new)

Angela (CATS | 8 comments Any WWII historical fiction or non-fiction also.


message 28: by James (last edited Feb 16, 2022 06:54PM) (new)

James Best (jamesbest) | 159 comments Mysteries, Thrillers, and Crime Fiction are my bread and butter, although I skip the cozy mysteries entirely. I do enjoy historical mysteries, but I limit myself to those that are set or linked to the WWII era.

Along with those big three categories I also enjoy:

Sports - mostly baseball, pro basketball, pro football, and track & field. There are way too many good authors out there to list in this space.

Military History - primarily WWII (ETO, Pacific, Eastern Front), as well as the Korean War, Vietnam, Persian Gulf Wars, and select military biographies. Trying to branch out this year into WWI and the Civil War.

Popular Science - Carl Sagan is the best of the lot, but I have also enjoyed select works by Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

History/Politics - select works by David Halberstam, Thomas Freidman, and Bob Woodward. This is my narrowest category which I really need to broaden in the next few years.

Yes Marco

I enjoy war books, true crime books


message 30: by Barbara (new)

Barbara | 64 comments Good biographies. One of my favorite biography authors is Wendy Moore, who picks unusual people to write about. Especially liked "The Knife Man" and "Wedlock."
Classics: I love Jane Austen, Conan Doyle, Dickens, Wilkie Collins.
Sherlock Holmes and Jane Austen pastiches if they're well done.

message 33: by R.S. (new)

R.S. Merritt | 23 comments Pretty much anything I find on the 'snag a book' shelves at a bed and breakfast. Lucked into some cool Authors that way. Tom Clancy seems to always be one of the books sitting there. Clive Cussler as well. Always like the third one in an Anne Rice series to oddly enough...
