I love reading.

Favorite books include Johnny Got His Gun, which my sophomore English teacher recommended to me way back when after reading a poetry assignment I did, and Ender's Game, which I read as a "free choice" book assignment for that same teacher.

My favorite author is Dean Koontz. Even though all his books are kind of similar, i still love reading them.

He makes Southern California seem like a shitty place though

Yeah, I enjoy reading on the train in the mornings/evenings and at night before bed. I just ordered two books (well one is a graphic novel, but still) tonight.

Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I do, but since Summer started I've been too apathetic about it, haha.
My social life has been raped, so I've been spending time trying to rebuild that, and reading doesn't help me with that.

But Vonnegut is my hero.
Hi, how are you?

I'm currently reading "A Game of Thrones" by George R. R. Martin and intend to move on to either more R.A. Salvatore books, or the Dark Tower series. Others on my list include American Psycho and the new Inheritance book.

Just finished reading a book called "Transmission" by Hari Kunzru[sic]. It's about an Indian computer programmer who gets hired on a 'slave visa' to work at this anti-virus company, then he's threatened with losing his job and being sent back to India so he creates this super computer virus accidently when he tries to make somthing that he can walk in and stop and be the big hero so he can keep his job. It's pretty convoluted and a little disjointed at times, but not a bad read.

Also read "I, Claudius" not too long ago. AWESOME book about the Roman empire, highly suggest it.

I remember I've read everything I could find written by Erle Stanley Gardner, creator of Perry Mason. He wrote other books like Cool/Lam mysteries, Whispering Sands western stories, and bunch of stories about unique characters. Hell of a writing style. There's more I haven't read but awfully hard to find.

Now I'm reading catalogs and manuals.
#30
I love to read, but I can never find a book that I actually like... The last book I read that I enjoyed was The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

Edit: Whoa, holy hell, whats up man!

I love to read, especially fantasy, and vampire romance.

And Shirley Barber!

If your serious about the vampire thing, can I suggest the Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles? Unless you already know about them. They are my favorite books of all time. Interview With The Vampire (the first one) is amazing.

I like to read, but I find it hard to find literature that not only catches, but keeps my attention.

However, I've grown quite fond of Chuck Palahniuk. I've read Fight Club, Choke and Diary. Diary was absolutely amazing. I wanna get my hands on Survivor next.

Cormac McCarthy - The Road
Patrick Suskind - Perfume
Enrique Barrios - Ami El Niño De Las Estrellas
Alex Haley - Roots: The Saga of an American Family
