I really started reading when I was in the fourth grade. I started out with Nancy Drews, went on read the Black Stallion, Judy Blume, and other children's authors.
I then graduated to reading Agatha Christie, Stephen King and other more adult authors. More of the pocketbook authors.
Currently, I read more fiction than mysteries and whatnot. I've expanded my reading expanse to comic books and graphic novels (say what you will about them, there are really good solid stories - backed up with amazing drawings. Don't believe me? Read Alan Moore. Read Neil Gaiman. Read Katsuhiro Otomo).
I like reading about subjects more than I like reading an author's complete works. Take for instance, Douglas Coupland, I love Microserfs, but can't read anything else. I know. It's strange. Whatever.
And lately, I've delved into reading non-fiction. (Something I'm supposed to be interested in anyway, being a professed graduated with an English major on the non-fiction track.) I've read books about the cooking culture, Alaska, the adolescence of girls and writing (once again Duh).
So, now you know about my reading habits. Scared? Please don't be. I'm mostly harmless. :)
