A cultured diary, now if only my friends had read that they would currently be in serious need of medical help (can you actually die laughing). If you notice I did not mention which types of books I generally read!. I am a fan of sci-fi and fantasy (started with the hobbit, and moved through David Eddings, Donaldson, Fiest and my all time favourite David Gemmell) I do read some other genre's including most the Sherlock Holmes, early John Grisham.
One thing I do love at the moment is the range of children/young adult books it just seems to have massively expanded since I was a child. My daughter read the Hobbit at 8 because she could not wait, but had already read Muddle Earth 1 & 2 (correct title check it out if you have kids) and currently my lad is reading Muddle Earth, and we actually have to take the books off them and out of their rooms at night to stop them reading!
