    These are some... I'm adding new ones every day as they pop into my mind.
    I've read every day since I was six, and my parents read to me from like age zero.
    Obviously, I won't add a bunch of swedish children's books.
    My first real book that I read myself was The Count of Monte Cristo when I was seven.

    It's by no means complete. Those are just the ones that stand out in my head.

    I figure if you learn to hurt/destroy, you should learn to heal/build, to balance things out. Being able to build/heal is infinitely more useful than just being able to break/destroy things.

    I don't include textbooks, mostly cause I never read them straight through. I don't read really much of *any* nonfiction, beyond! It seems like a waste of time, from most of the nonfiction I've read. I'd rather go straight to the correct article/encyclopedia/textbook for the info, rather that plod my way through a bunch of (poorly research) and onesided opinion stuff first.

    Anyway, my goodreads covers "read" list (here's it with ratings instead, cause how much the person liked the novel is more informational, I'm guessing). I also have a librarything, but am limited to 200 books, so don't update it much. I've been trying to write reviews of everything I read, but it's hard work trying to pare my thoughts down to logical words.

    I guess I mostly read contemporary fiction, lately in particular "international fiction". I don't know. I have an inordinate fondness for the fantasy books I loved as a child. I like to try new genres and hyped things but I often don't find them very satisfying. I enjoy realistic fiction and low fantasy. Humorous touches rather than melodrama. Some graphic novels and manga. A very very occasional nonfiction book about a topic I find fascinating. Never: self-help books, memoirs, religious texts. I'm trying to learn about poetry.

    I am often reading several books at once, though don't have much time to indulge while classes are in session:
    Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea by Charles Seife
    Selected Poems by ee cummings (edited by Richard S. Kennedy)
    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
    (and rereading) The Door In The Wall by Marguerite DeAngeli

    I don't see a strong type correlation. Am I missing something?
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I haven't actually read much in awhile, but I don't think there's much to say about the books I read.
