What do you read for pleasure/fun?
Not the books you read for school, work or to make a point but just simply for enjoyment.
I highly recommend checking out Allie Brosh's "Hyperbole & a Half", inspired by her online blog.
It makes a great gift also. My daughter and I were having a tug of war trying to read it at the same time. It's epic and something of a thing that the book even came out as the author suffers from severe depression.
I could read stuff like that all day.
A lot but not all of these made it into the book: [hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com]
Almost anything Science Fiction with a preference for Hard Science Fiction where the author has taken the time to develop his characters well and they tend to run the show but the technology has not been forced into the back seat. That would be my number one choice.
Actually open to any genre, though I give Romance, Literal Fiction, and most Westerns a pass. I can get turned on by well written Urban Fantasy/Paranormal/Horror, but it has to be well thought out and presented.
I enjoy reading history. I am very much into history of science and ancient cosmologies. I have read a great deal of Law material as well. When I was young I read non-fiction, Physics, Chemistry and the Earth sciences almost exclusively. Now I lean more towards Brain sciences, Sociological and Philosophical material.
