    Default Books!

    Before we had tellies and games consoles and computers and such like, we had books.

    In fact, even after we got tellies and games consoles and computers and such like, we've still got books.

    So...what're your fav books? And what types of books do you enjoy reading, if indeed you read at all? If not, why not?

    I rarely read....it's just really boring imo. Don't have the attention span to sit down with a book. When I do I enjoy it, but I'd rather be doing something else.

    I always loved Ring though, fantastic horror book

    I used to read Goosebumps when I was younger. I was into scary stories back then and also tried to write my own sometimes. But alas, I'm not much of a book reader, I like pictures more!

    I've just been given a copy of The Idiot. Don't think I can face it though, 600 pages of inpenetrable Russian literature.
    Tic Tac, sir?

    I used to read loads when I was a kid... But then I discovered video games, and suddenly books were pointless and boring. I haven't read many fictional books in years, I now find it hard to get into them, my attention span can't seem to hack it. I do love reading non-fiction though, articles and self-help books mostly that let me look at the world differently. Started reading a book by Richard Dawkins, and wow, that's heavy going too!

    I do own a few fictional books that I want to start reading again, like Dune. This thread may even prompt me. Actually, the last fictional books I did read was the Harry Potter series, as that was petty easy to get into.

    I don't really know anything about books, like what is popular, current trends, series, etc. I'm the same way with music; I just don't keep up to date with it.

    I'm quite a fan of reading. The Discworld series is probably my favourite series of books. Right now I'm trying to get through Metro 2033 the book that inspired the game, it's pretty good actually hope the sequal gets translated aswell.

    I've been reading through the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. I've finished the first two, The Northen Lights and The Subtle Knife and I'm working my way through the last book, The Amber Spyglass.

    I had seen the Golden Compass film before, but the end of the book is much different and more dramatic. Really good series so far.

    Books? What are they?

    I haven't read any book from start to finish, either because I don't have the time, or because when I go back to a book, I read back a couple of paragraphs and then get involved in something else, thus reading the same paragraphs over and over again.

    There's always something else I should be getting on with.

    I like a novel now and again, but my short attention span makes it a rarity these days. I'll start a novel but leave it abandoned after a few good chapters. >_<
