Are you still enchanted by books?

I know there are many who have abandoned books. But I also know there are still so many who love to read. Are you still captured by a good book? What you're favorite genre?

  • Yeah dean Koontz is great. I read one of books about a guy and a woman being woke in the middle of the night. The guy can't shake the feeling that there's something massive in the clouds over his house. Next day the news is reporting blood coloured waterspouts popping up all over the globe. Theyre getting filmed from helicopters and planes. Then the world really goes to hell. I dunno if you've read it but it stuck in my mind. Like the odd thomas books as well and Stephen King. Dunno who's better. Others I like are sven hassel and Andy mcnab. Not really for women those authors though. I just finished war and peace. Getting through the thing is a battle in itself lol

    • I haven't read that one but it sounds really interesting. Do you know the title?

    • I'm pretty sure it was the taking. Watchers is great as well. If you like horror and suspense read the langoliers by King and the mist. They made films of them but as you know theyre usually crap compared to the book. Nothing beats your own imagination.

What Guys Said 18

  • I'm still enchanted. But have had to take a hiatus. Been far too mind focused. Doing lots of physical conditioning lately, for the sake of my well being :) Dostoevsky was most life changing all those years ago. Generally I like books on spirituality, alternative health practices, any books that deal with the deeper meaning in life. I've just finished reading Kafka on the Shore. And I have a book on Tibetan Yoga that I've been meaning to read for a while. I also keep meaning to read Goethe Faust properly :)

    • Oh my, this made me happy. A glimpse of my old bestie. I like.

    • @CHARismatic110 why do u think I left lol? I don't get it. U want me to talk about books more than lifting? I can do that.
      Im reading Saving Capitalism by Robert Reich right now. It's way liberal by the way lol.

  • I'm reading the Song of Fire and Ice series now...

    But Lord of the Rings will always be my favorite.

  • Sure am... love sitting beside the fireplace in the winter and reading my latest haul from Indigo. In the summer it's out on the veranda in my hammock. I can't hit the hay until I have read a chapter or two.

    I prefer suspense/thrillers... books that make you think and are not just a story, however I do like the occasional biography too.

    • Should read the owl by Bob forward mate. It's out of print now but they're both crackers.

  • Of course I love reading heck at book stores half the time I won't even buy a book I'll just sit in a chair and without realizing it go through a quarter or even half of a book sometimes.

  • Hell, yeah! But I read them on my Kindle now. Not one of those purists who enjoy feeling the actual book and the paper on their hands.

    And you missed my favorite gender, which is Science Fiction. :(

  • I recently regained my love for reading all thanks to my interest in politics and economics.
    Since my university is very Liberal it inspired me to read Conservative writers as well in order to get a balanced perspective.

  • I love anything about love, heartbreak, depression, abuse (always interested to read more about, breaks my dang heart though, especially on the true stories), dystopian, or fantasy. I also like certain thrillers and crime novels, but most of them are too dry to catch my interest.

    The biggest exception is The Patrick Bowers Files by Steven James. I definitely got wrapped up in that series. I loved the characters and the criminals were very interesting, the writing was amaazing (in my opinion), and the pacing was great. Normally not my cup of tea, but it's one of my favorite series!

    I started reading at a very young age. And I think my parents read to me before I could even walk :P I've grown up with a book in my hand, and that will never change.

    • I also love Gillian Flynn novels. Ever since Gone Girl I was entranced by her work.

  • Yes. I absolutely love reading. Always have. I don't limit myself to one genre. Same with music. I'm open to reading just about anything.

  • I love reading books.
    I read classic and modern ones.
    Genre is not that important, i love variety.
    I am interested in almost all genres, as long as those books are not about mechanical engineering.

  • I will always love books. Science fiction books, teen fiction and fiction books.
    Books are the only thing that let me go to another world. Books are the only thing that are always there when I need them. Books are the only thing that make you forget about everything. Books are the only thing that will always be your friends. Books are the only thing that let you travel. Books are the only thing that give you a taste of every kind of experience. Books are the only thing that understand you. 📚= <3

  • Yes, I love reading books still. I voted for fantasy, since I am reading the third book in the DarkGlass series. But I love horror, historical fiction, a little romance (like Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Emma, Wuthering Heights etc.) and on occasion biographies.
