I just thought that there should be a book genre poll for all of you who do stuff besides surf the Internet all day. If you have more than one preference, go ahead and pick both. Definitely Fantasy for me

I used to be a big fan of SciFi and Graphic novels, but at this point the books that I read are pretty much all non-fiction. Not really sure why that is. I guess I just prefer movies for the fantasy and Sci-fi type stuff.

I read Fantasy and Manga/Graphic Novels the most. I'm trying to re-read the last Harry Potter book, but I can't seem to get myself started. Instead, I read One Piece or Naruto...

Horror all the way. I just love the look of most horror manga's and books, unlike the movie genre, don't rely on blood and guts to get the horror across. They have to actually get into your head.

Wait....why is Manga/Graphic Novels an option in the poll for a genre? That's not a genre but a medium.

I know that manga and graphic novels are a medium, but their styling and content is so different from plaintext that I feel they deserve a separate category. I also didn't feel like doing each subgenre of those, it would have taken a while to finish.

I usually read Adventure or Fantasy books. Those are really the ones that interest me.

I actually prefer legit Sci-Fi to Fantasy. I like reading stuff that actually has an intelligent basis to it. (I mean logically explainable, even if it isn't real)

I enjoy reading Non Fiction books.

Mainly about serial killers...something about blood fascinates me. I have a huge collection of books with different serial killers from different times (years) Very interesting once you start reading..

Fantasy and Science Fiction are my two favorite. Brian Jacques does the best fantasy books and Ender's Game is the best Sci Fi book I've read in a long time.

My favorite genre of books has to be Non Fiction books. Autobiographies on serial killers interest me...I have several books that I've read on the most prolific serial killers in the world.

alexanyways : Would it be possible for you to move this thread to the books category? I don't know if you can or not, but I meant to put it there and it got deselected when I previewed the thread.

Fantasy is my first, as I began reading with fantasy books, with science fiction and horror behind. I'm pretty good with science fiction as long as they don't get too hard. I'm not reading equations for fun. Also with horror, my experience extends to Stephen King. He is terrific no matter what others may say and the Dark Tower series is just the best. I understood the ending but it was a kick in the gut.

I was going to go with mystery, but that's not here so instead i'll go with adventure. Any story with a good adventure has value to me. It's not anything in particular, I just love a good adventure.
