I love reading, when I get the chance. Despite spending so much time online (between shifts, anyway) I find a good book much more entertaining than Facebook. I have 2 on the go atm - Duncton Quest (an 80s book about moles) and Fifty Shades Darker.

Also, downloaded on my mob, I have Darwin's The Origin of Species

Having received a Kindle for last Christmas I love it! - no more lugging of heavy books! I always read before I go to bed and have fallen asleep quite a few times!

The books I like reading are medical thrillers, True Ghost stories, the paranormal, horrors, biographies and Animal stories (Vet tales)

:):)

I like reading horror stories but ive ran out of books to read at the library, there's not any new ones coming up that looks good.

Stephen King The Duma Key was a great horror book, i was hooked on this book.

I LOVE books:D

I always have at least 1 fiction on the go (usually horror, sci-fi or fantasy), plus a non-fiction, plus a classic I've downloaded onto my Kindle:)

Now I couldn't get on with that, yet I generally like Dean Koontz. I love a good horror story, but it has to be good. I have tried some that have relied on blood and gore and I can't cope with that. James Herbert does a good ghost story and Stephen King, of course, does everything well.

Duma Key was good. I've read all Stephen King's except the Dark Tower series and I gave up on Hearts in Atlantis. Couldn't understand that. He went a bit weird after someone ran him over didn't he? That's when he wrote Insomnia which I thought was really weird, but he seems to have got back to normal now. Beyond the Dome was a really good one, or was it under the Dome? Something about a dome anyway. I still think his best was the Stand.

i love reading, i prefer paper books though, not the electronic ones. i only read fantasy or sci-fi books, they are the only ones i can get into. although i did enjoy reading pride and prejudice. at the moment i am reading Rapture by JR Ward.
my favourite authors are Trudi canavan, James clemens, Kresley Cole, Gena Showlater, JR Ward, Kelley Armstrong, GA Aiken and Fiona mcintosh.

the best site ive found for looking for books that have been released are are going to be released is Fantastic Fiction just type in an author and it shows all the books and pre-orders too, or type in books you like and it will show all the authors books. it also shows you similar authors if you are looking for ones similar to ones you already read.

How can you read more than one book at once? I would get in a real muddle. I love historical chronicles, stuff that was written at the time like Pepys Diary and the Anglo Saxon Chronicles.

Have you tried Dean Koontz? Not horror in its true sense but i love his books, they are kind of sci-fi, thriller, crime all in one. Some of his books are very strange but my favourite writer by far.

I used to like reading Stephen King and the book that scared me a bit :eek:
was 'Different Seasons' - then he had that accident and his books had a different feel to it after that so gave up! James Herbert is great - 'The Secret of Crickley Hall' was brilliant - couldn't put it down!! :D

I am sure I must have read Different Seasons, but can't remember that one. You should give Stephen King a go again as he has returned to his not so nutty phase. I must admit I went off him a bit after the accident, but he is ok again now.

Crickley Hall was good, I like a good ghost story. I also love a good murder mystery. you can't beat Ruth Rendell.

The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice is good, but she did get a bit past the sell by date. The first four are excellent, but it seems she didn't know when to stop. They are excellent though, told from the point of view of the vampire who are not evil, just misunderstood.

Talking of murder/crime stuff - i love phorensic type books.

Patricia Cornwell, Karin Slaughter etc.

Any of you read the Scarpetta books by Cornwell? They used to be great but im finding that i cant read through anymore after a couple of chapters.
