I enjoy reading very very much.  I read just about anything, but I do censor out from time to time.  The books I choose to read really depends on the mood that I would currently have.  I personally feel that in order to be a good writer, you have to be a versatile reader so that you can determine what is good writing from bad writing.  And I know that right now, half of you who just read that statement are wondering how would someone determine a good book from a bad one because...doesn't good and bad depend on the person?  The answer  There is such a thing as good writing and bad writing.  Sure, everyone can write, but not everyone can write well.

Anyways, I am steering off course.  Back to what I was talking about.  I read just about anything, and I'm a pretty fast reader so I can go through books pretty fast.  Let me give you a run down of what I've read in the past year to give you an idea of my versatility in reading:

-The Twilight Saga...(to see what all the hype was about)
-The Harry Potter Series...(to also see what all the hype was about)
-Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring...(just because I loved the movie)
-Do What You Are...(to see what other career options could possibly be available for my personality type)
-Earthly Joys...(just because my head started hurting from reading too in-depth things)
-The Shack...(because there was over 2 million copies in print)
-This costume history book just because that's my field and I was interested

And I'm currently reading Virgin Earth because it's the sequel to Earthly Joys.  So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I really enjoy reading anything and everything so I am always up for a good recommendation from other bookworms.  I do have to say that it takes a lot of push and shove for me to pick up a science fiction novel as well as a romance novel.  When I say romance, I am talking about things like Harlequin.  I will eventually pick it up and start reading it, but it like I said, it takes much convincing and lots of hype.
