No really. I am a fast reader.
I can read a book in a day, if I really love it. I plow through books. I love reading. I was raised a bit of a reader and I think reading is one of the best things to do as a child and young adult. My god, did I have a fantasy life when I was younger. I am sure a lot due to books.
These days my reading is not so much about escapism, but much more about entertainment.
I wish I could say I read a lot of awesome, high level, demanding books. High brow-lit, you know, but I don't.
I love thrillers and crime novels. I completely binge read them and then I actually have to go off the juice for a few months, because I start reading a crime book and little, as I would call them "Mistakes" in the story annoy me and then I realize it's time to take a break from crime novels.
I blame my love for crime novels, even more specific: serial killer books (I just ordered a book where some serial killer does lobotomies on his victims. What a sick fuck and what is wrong with me that I immediately click on "SEND TO MY KINDLE".
I digress, I blame some of this on one of my best friends in college. She was studying psychology and had this book about forensic psychology and I would read it at night at her house, for fun, you know. This then would cause me to be afraid in my own house and often taken the late night bus to her house, so I wouldn't be alone, but ever since then I found these stories just insanely scary and suspenseful.
I also developed a real love for "Criminal Minds" until that show got a bit too gruesome for me (season 3 I think, one and two were good). I still watch it off and on, but not religiously. I also have 2.5 epsiode limit on them. If there is a Criminal Minds marathon and I am at about that level, I start seeing things when I walk the dogs in the dark.
That pick up truck? THAT LOOKS SUSPICIOUS. You get what I mean. :)
Anyway. Go to read my book about the serial killer lobotomy killer now.
What types of books do you guys read?
