And you are the clown on this forum. A fraud, a ridicule to mankind.
You don't ever answer a serious question.
Therefore, you must be a troll.
Go away..
Just leave..
You've just described yourself!!:LOL::LOL::LOL:

Your first useful contribution to this forum, non-Celtic fellow.
My favorites are usually Playboy,Hustler,Penthouse,etc....they actually have REALLY good articles-go figure.
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.
I think it's time to revive this thread.
Voted other, but non-fictional technical books. Programming mostly, sometimes something math-related
I could have ticked all of the categories for my book reading over the years. There were even times when I didn't read much. However, I only ticked seven types to represent more recent years. Science and Nature (Non-Fiction) best represents my recent reading. Examples from this year include: "How The World Really Works" by Vaclav Smil, "The Pattern Seekers" by Simon Baron-Cohen, "Jellyfish Age Backwards" by Nicklas Brendborg and "Books Do Furnish A Life" by Richard Dawkins. When I want a change, I dip into literary books. I read Jorge Luis Borges for the first time this year, four anthologies of his short stories.
I was an avid reader in my youth, and I still enjoy reading whenever I have time. My favorite genres are fantasy, comics, manga, magazines, crime, reference, and religion.
My main interest in non-fiction is science (especially physics and biology), philosophy, history and politics. As for fiction, it's usually science fiction, crime thrillers and classic literature.
