    The last thing I read was The Pillow Book by Sei Shonagon (for the second time) and before that The Dark Room (Anhitsu) by Junnosuke Yoshiyuki. I liked both.

    I am currently reading Dan Brown's Angels & Demons. So far it's a great book.

    But I will read anything that interests me. So it varies...a lot.

    I also HAVE to read the latest Readers Digest. I just enjoy it.

    Some years I practically not opened of not one book... The Truth sometime look in the Bible to take from there "Citation" for a forum, but it seldom enough occurs. Last the book which I read there was a book of the Japanese author about Miyamoto Mussasi (?).

    Recently I've switched to non-fiction books. Currently, I'm reading a book called The President of Good and Evil: The Ethics of George W. Bush. It's an interesting read.

    I like history of science best of all. I love to learn how big discoveries came about, and how they were usually not accepted without a struggle. One of my favourites in this genre is Longitude by Dava Sobel.

    In fiction I like to read classic novels, science fiction, children's fiction and George RR Martin (which is the only fantasy I can stand). I read a wide range of non-fiction - biographies, religion, ancient & mediaeval history, science, especially evolution, genetics and quantum physics. At the moment, though, I am reading a history of art.

    As for science, my favorite book of all times is Carl Sagan's "Cosmos." Just excellent and the enormity of the scale in which he painted the universe just really impressed me.

    One of the parts that sticks in my memory was the comparison of grains of sands of all the beaches of the world, on the ocean bottom, or in deserts to the number of stars in the universe. Which numbered more?

    I was quite surprised that the stars numbered more considering there are a lot of grains of sand here on Earth.

    Who else has read "Cosmos"?

    I'm fond of reading fiction, mythology, fantasy, classics and psychological literature... If you are reading - you're improving yourself)

    I like Chak Pallanik also. His books are amazing and not usual... You'll never find up how his book ends... his characters has extraordinary logic, their deeds are unexpectable and freak...

    you should read it)

    Hmm.. Occult/Religion seems fiction to me..

    I read much about history.

    And I have read very much scientific books my entire life.
    My spectrum of interests was very wide.

    I think there are great books in all of those areas, but I mostly tend to prefer non-fictional books of all kinds. As I said, a good novel is always worth a read though.
