i think you covered it all!   :-D
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I left out my favorite (which is a sub category of horror) ZOMBIES - now THEY are some GREAT books when you can find them.

oh yeah
zombies happen to be my own personal favorite in the horror genre as well.

I selected quite a few choices.  I'm just addicted to books is what it amounts to.

I like to read almost anything. I do try to follow this rotation.
Spiritual/Religious
Classics
Something for fun(any subject)

Anyone else do this?

Thanks for voting in the pull. I know it's 2 1/2 years ago, but sadly it in memory loss issues from lymes disease, I don't remember creating this poll – it's good to see someone actually take it, nine votes to have years seems a little lite. Hopefully now that it's reposted some others may vote. Thanks.

I like action and thrillers, and I guess it would be called historical fiction. Also fiction, sometimes romantic, but generally speaking, I don't read to many romantic books.

Some of my favorite books are:

Behind the Beautiful Forever by Katherine Boo (LIfe, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity)

Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach (this was a very sensual romance set in Amsterdam)

Life of Pi by Yann  Martel (they made a movie out of this book) One of my favorites

I love David Baldacci Books (action, thrillers) and have read:

The Forgotten
Absolute Power
The Winner (one of my favorites)
Stone Cold
Divine Justice


The Round House by Louise Erdrich (Story of a Crime on an Indian Reservation)

I love, love, love the trilogy by Stieg Larsson:
The girl who played with fire, The girl who kicked the hornets nest,  and the girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I just love the heroine of these books.

Well thats enough for now.

I picked "Other" - I often choose by author no matter what the genre may be.  Anything by Orson Scott Card - I grab if I see it.  Neil Gaiman is a master of descriptions (He's also a beekeeper - but I'm not sure how hands-on  he is with it.) I wouldn't know how to categorize myself as a reader, since if I'm not looking for something specific - I could wind up with anything.  Sci-fi Sci-fi Sci fi. is where I land most when I'm not going by author.
be happy and make others happy.

I prefer hard copies over Ebooks too. Just something about the feel and smell that makes it more personal.
I do have the kindle app on my phone which is really convenient when I find an unexpected wait or break in town or at work.
