I hope that you all are having a wonderful Monday morning.  I am feeling a little better than I was yesterday.  So far anyway.
 
The question that I am asking today is what do you like to read?  I use to like scarey novels like Stephen King, Dean Koontz etc...  Now all I mostly read is self help books.  Anything that I can find on fibromyalgia or depression.  It is kind of my project on the side.
 
Let me know what you like.
 
Have a great Monday,
 
hugs, Karen

I read mostly crime fiction, but I will also read pretty much anything. I like biographies too!

I don't read that much actually. There are only 3 genre's or so that can hold my interest. Which are books about Buddhism, music theory, or historic adventures :-).

I read anything by Joyce Carol Oates.  She has written so many wonderful books.  Many people don't like her as her writing can be dark and depressing but she is actually writing about the true human spirit and the way people conduct their daily lives.  She has won many book awards and is a professor at Princeton University.  For anyone looking for books to read, just go to your local library.  You would be surprised how knowledgeable the librarians are.  If you tell them what you like they can find many books for you. And most books can be checked out for 3 weeks and renewed.  So I say give it a try.

Right now I'm really sucked in to Stephanie Myers's Twilight saga... I'm halfway through the last book now and they're surprisingly really good!

My other favorite authors are Carl Hiassen, Chuck Palahniuk, and Francesca Lia Block. I've also got an expanding collection of books on Buddhism and Tibetan philosophy that I find extremely interesting and can't get enough of. But I do like to read fiction, it's nice to lose yourself in someone elses' drama or romance from time to time.

My 18 year old daughter got me to read the twilight saga and I loved it.
