(I hope this is the General forum, Sandy?)

I'm always researching health books, holistic and conventional.
I love learning about health issues.
I really don't read novels anymore.
How about you?

Ummm, I'm thinking here.

I don't so much as have a reading list, but grab whatever book takes my fancy as I see it.

Although I'm not religious, as in all the man created dogma that goes with a specific religion, I do love reading the Bible.  I read it more as a puzzle that I need to solve.  I have also investigated the beliefs in the Qur'an.  I find Islam to be an horrendous cult if you read the Qur'an.  But that's another story.

I also read a lot of spiritual books.  

For light reading I love books like Lee Child's Jack Reacher.  Dan Brown's books I very much enjoy also.  So you could say my favourites are adventure type books.

I equally love the classics.  Dickens being my favourite.  But once one has read the classics there is no hope for new ones coming along, lol.

The other type I read and am well into are the fantasies.  My favourite series being the Belgarian.  I have read that series about 5 times over.

Thanks for posting this Daz.  It doesn't matter if one posts in the wrong forum anyway as I can always move it.

Sandy you should read or see the movie the shack.
It may seem religious but it's for all beliefs.
I just love the author. He also wrote the Life of pi.

You have a lot of interests, Sandy. I too like to read the bible. I used to read mysteries when I was little, and I don't why I got away from it. I think because there's so much to do now.
I want to know if this is the General forum?
Sally, I may go see THE SHACK next week. It looks pretty good, as I saw the previews. I've been going to movies by myself on Tuesdays, because the popcorn is half price and I get free things with my Regal Theater card. I actually have more fun by myself, because I don't have to deal with friends that are too tight to want to pay half of the popcorn, especially when they're sharing with me. Laughing

I think they do a Thursday special in our cinemas for the pensioners.  I would certainly go if I liked the cinema.

I love films but I hate going to the cinema.  So uncomfortable and one has to share with lots of strangers, lol.

But I will check out The Shack when it come on Sky download or DVD.  I do like religious films actually.

When I was a kid Daz, from the age of 7 I would pick up anything to read.  I remember one day I couldn't find a book I hadn't read, so my Mother threw me the paperback of The Island of Dr Moreau.  For a child that young it was a blasted horror story, but I couldn't put it down.  I constantly had a book in my hand.  My Grandmother was forever telling me to go outside and play with the others, the others being my cousins.  But how can one put a great book down, lol.

Sandy, the majority of time, at the cinemas, I go during matinees and there aren't very many people there.

That's true, when you are reading a good book, it's addictive and it's hard to put down.

Love reading Dan Brown's books and I have most of his movies on DVD.

I can't go past a good herbal book or natural remedies books and have slowly started to collect them in Kindle format.

I love biographies, books about history, & true crime stories.

I had started reading a book called "No Easy Day"
and had put it aside because I was reading two other books.
I've recently gone back to "No Easy Day."

It's about the mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
It's quite interesting.

Daz I sure understand about doing things alone. I am tired of worrying about other peoples good time.
I'm not a movie goer.

Martha I have spent many years reading and learning about alternative medicine.
I believe it saved my life.

Interesting reads.

Many Doctors now also prescrible alternative medicine. I know my Doctors have for several years now.

I think they are beginning to realise that often it's not the chemical medication that is always the best.

I've just started reading Dragons Dwarven Depths by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.  It's a continuation of the Dragon Lance series.

The thing is Sandy, doctors learn about the chemical equivalent of the natural remedies and that then gets shoved down our throats! They don't learn about the natural remedies which is sad. But then again natural remedies can not be patented so it's all comes down to the $$.

I'm reading a Jeff Brown book called Soul Shaping.

My last Doctor where I lived before went on a 3 month course to learn not only natural alternative medicine but also accupuncture.

Over here many Doctors are now suggesting alternative natural medication or will give you a prescription if you want.

Perhaps it wont be long before they start doing that in Aussie land too.

I am starting to reading Carly Phillips books again and I have read the Molly Harper Nice Girl series this yr again third time lol.  I bought 4 Charlotte Harris books at the Goodwill. I plan on googling her and finding out which book is first since I like to read them in order.

That sounds really interesting Kerri. I might try to find that, or order it from the library.

I've made a promise to myself that I'm not going to actually buy anymore books. In the old days I wouldn't dream of buying a normal novel. I would only borrow them from the library.

The only book I bought and paid for were educational type books that I really wanted to keep to read again or for reference. I then went through a time when I spent a fortune on books. But now, I have decided that the old way was better.

I've got a favourite authors list on amazon and when any of them have a special on I buy a book.

Now not long ago I signed up and paid for monthly unlimited books. You can have 10 books max at a time and when you finish a book you return it and grab another one. It's like an online borrowing of book but via my kindle! It costs me $14 a month but well worth it now going into winter as I read a lot more then.

I still buy some herbal or essential oil books to keep in my collection. These are paperbacks or hard cover books.

alot of the times i read more then one book, some might call it strange, but i'm so used to it

i read alot of kids books....

and i found a series based on Margueritte Henry's famous Chincotique Island ponies, called Misty Inn, i have 5 of the 6 books currently out, and i've read two of them..

I like to read history, mystery, and romance, although that's been on the way side.

alot of the history i read is our own...especially since we're having the big 150...but i've always loved our history, and sadly i found out that my favourite history teacher just died....but can't say he didn't live a long life, he was maybe 93....and he lost a son when he was 55 to ALS...

I didn't get the obit, but someone i know found it, and is going to send it to me....ironically this one guy was a teacher in one high school and taught with my history teacher's brother.....so they were both history teachers......i didn't go to highschool in toronto though, i went elsewhere in the provice....i lived in three places all my life

I know i'm rambling on, so i'll stop...

Susan 

but, that book that won the Canada Reads awards, i live right near where it took place....if that says anything..lol...

there's this small book store where i live, on the first BIA in the world......and i just e-mail them and tell them what i want, and they bring it in for me...as long as they can order it from amazon or something like that, so it's a great system

Susan 

and i'm loving the author Vicki Delany, who writers stuff both that take place in BC, and in USA.....

Susan I had to edit the post of yours above this one as you had copied and pasted a table from some where with your books read list.  The table copied over badly and stretched the page to twice it's size.

So I removed the table and just left the list.

I love history too. I used to hate it at school, but for some reason I really got into it when I left school. Maybe I had a crappy history teacher that made it all sound to boring. And I have never been one for remembering exact dates.

I particularly love social history which was never covered at school. I have also lived in several parts of the south of England, and whenever I move to a new place part of the fun for me is researching local history.
