I read a lot of chick lit (which is different from romance/harlequin novels). I like British authors like Sophie Kinsella and Harriet Evans. I just got a Kindle and I'm having a hard time finding new books to read lol.

I love murder mysteries when they're good ones by good authors and other kinds of mysteries, adventure, or espionage type stories, those page turners that you can't put down. I love many of the old classics. Non fiction includes books about dogs, how to stuff, although that's mostly on the Internet, not books for me. Gardening/landscaping is something I'm often looking at, bird books so I can identify birds around me, stuff like that.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

Lots of YA stuff here, too. Mostly dystopian or fantasy.
Fantasy and Sci-fi
And quite a bit of non-fiction as well (science/nature stuff usually, but sometimes history or sociology, lots of hiking memoirs at the moment)

Non-fiction (biology, mostly; and mostly evolution stuff at that, although that's having to change because of the focus of my new program--and yes, I am talking about what I read for fun, lol)

Big mix, really. I don't read much romance.
