I used to read romance and some auto biography however now that I do voluntary work, I have not read for about 6 months.

Also now that I am doing work on Hub Garden, I also do not lie down for a few hours in the day and read.

I have heaps of books to read but do not feel like reading at the moment.

There is no furniture so lovely as books!!! I collect antique and old children's illustrated books as well as art and poetry books. I do actually read these treasures and they are not just for show! My adult love of Fantasy probably stems from the gorgeous children's books I had as a child. C.S,Lewis of Narnia fame once said that we have truly grown up when we can enjoy fairy tales once again.How very true! I also enjoy biographies,criminal mysteries, non-fiction of all types,and reference books on all types of subjects from ancient history to art to nature and in fact anything which catches my eye at the time!! I am hopeless. I used to read as I walked to and from work!!! The only place I do not read is the Loo!!!
When I have time I like to read mainly true stories...biographies and auto-biographies...

I don't read as often as I would like. Before I had kids I would devour a novel ever week or so. At the moment I am reading the latest Diana Gabaldon "Outlander" book - it's a fantasy. I've also been halfway through the most recent game of thrones book for about 6 months. Presently I read a fair bit of Dr Suess, with a few fairy tales and little golden books thrown in for good measure.
I love Diana Gabaldon. I also love some Dr Seuss - in particular "23 Daves."

Fantasy! I'm currently neck deep in the final Game of Thrones, and I'm chomping at the bit to get stuck into Robin Hobb's new series about The Fool and Fitz, but I'll wait until all three are released to start.

I also love reading humorous romance books by Irish authors. Marion Keyes is my favourite.

I should point out that I have an e-reader instead of books these days because when we renovated we knocked out the walls that bookshelves sat next to, and in order to convince me to get rid of the books I had to be bribed with a new fan dangled toy. I LOVE my e-reader now and I wish I'd converted years ago!
A new Robin Hobbs series?!?! I'll have to go back and read the previous one so I can remember what happened! I used to love sitting down to read a whole fantasy series - was the absolute best way to spend a weekend!

Ohhh yes, a glass of wine in one hand, a book in the other! Those were the days….

I used to read loads and loads, but not so much now. I still read every day but it might only be a few pages. I tend to rad classic children's fiction.
I don't read as often as I would like, but I literally just finished a novella. I feel empty. 'The Awakening'. Don't read it.

I like to read dystopic and comic stuff.

I can only manage say about 20 mins in bed of a night, then my eyelids close.
I read my Bible, and other related topics.
I go between fiction and motivational self help type books

All the time. I read (and in the case of audiobooks, listen to) books to review for A Comfy Chair, the book hub. I get through at least one every two weeks, sometimes more. I read all sorts of things: young adult books, sci fi, fantasy, romance, mysteries, biographies and some other non fiction.

I like sci fi and romance. Don't read as regularly as I used to, but usually just a couple of pages before bed every night, until the book gets really good and I can't put it down until it's finished.
Non fiction historical books are my main interest and at the moment I'm managing to read a book a week on almost daily train trips, as well as one for bedtime and another for when I take the cat outside in the garden for an hour or so most days.
I am currently fixated on Detective Fiction- the ones where the nosy Tea Shop owner/ Book shop owner outwits the local police. They easy to read and nothing too distressing or heart rending. I often read 4 or more a week.
At the moment I hardly read any other book outside of the Bible. The Old Testament in particular has loads of fascinating stories. The only other books I read are on instructional activities, such as creating a computer program using the C# programming language.

Reading for me as a means to an end, not an end in itself.
My choices of reading 'subjects' are many, & varied!

At the moment have three 'on the go'.....

One on Forensic Pathology.
One on Climate Change as effected by GEOLOGICAL events.
One on the 'ups & downs' (oops! Pun alert!) of Qantas' financial 'woes' over past 5-10 years'.

ALL very interesting, to me.

Next one will be 'Bell of the Desert', want to read BEFORE movie released!

I am, and always have been, a voracious reader. I carry a book with me wherever I go. It is a great help if I have to wait for any reason. I mostly read fiction - mysteries and fantasies - but also books on cooking, crafts, women and more.
My library has a feature that gives titles and authors of similar books to the one you select. I recently used that feature to read several novels featuring narcissistic mothers.
