    I do get psychologies magazine every month.

    I enjoy reading new age and self help books as i like to see someones views on a subject of interest from a different perspective.

    I do read some fictional books from time to time but i moreso than not like to read something where i can benefit from it.

    I'm more of fairytale story books fan. Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of The Ring, stuff like that.

    I loved reading the Lives of Christopher Chant and all of Diana Wynne Jone's stuff also.

    *prefers kids books*
    but you know there are some good *adult* ones. Like.. Is Terry Pratchett's work adult?

    I dunno. Maybe it's like Shrek in a way.

    Besides what my English classes have made me read, the only books that I read voluntarily are reference books. A lot of them are psychology books or otherwise books that have something to do with science. In my opinion, any books that are not reference books are largely pointless (I guess they can entertain if that counts, but you might as well just see a movie or play a game if you want to be amused).

    If I had to list my favorite books though, I think I'd probably have The Selfish Gene and the Art of War at the top.

    As for recommendations, I think Sensors would like like Malcom Gladwell's works for the information they contain. Although I can certainly see Intuitives enjoying them as well.

    The Art of War = GREAT for STs. Up there with Machiavelli

    i think John Steinbeck is a good one for S's.
    Cannery Row seems like a great S book, maybe SP? it's short too, go read it people!

    The Stranger, by Albert Camus. the main character is an ISTP. i think it would appeal to S's, but it also gives some insight into ISTPs.

    To Kill A Mockingbird, maybe?

    and maybe Hunter S. Thompson?

    i liked the suggestions of The Call of The Wild, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and The Catcher in the Rye.
