Side Note: I made a beautiful geeky doll which I am very proud of. See her at The Blue Fairy's Workshop.

Today's Question is:

Q. Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

I'd say my all-time favorite genre is Fantasy, in most of its flavors. Of course, I love Science Fiction, I really like Classic Noir and some Mystery, occasional Horror, very occasional Romance. But I always come back to Fantasy, especially Epic Adventure Fantasy, ever since I fell in love with the Prydain Chronicles as a child. Being obsessed with Dragonlance as a teen just cemented it.

Today's Question is:

“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”

Well, there's less than ten books in a literal pile, but those aren't necessarily the books I'm reading next. I tend to keep my TBR list in the cloud, so to speak. Partially a list of reminders in my email, partially a list of pending requests at the library, partially a collection of samples from un-purchased books on my Kindle. My apartment is too small to let me keep too many books physically here at any one time. I'll select my next book from one of those lists, or I may hear about something new that will grab my attention. I don't like to plan my reading strictly too far in advance, except when I am interested in a particular subject.

New follower here. You have no idea how happy I am to see someone mention The Chronicles of Prydain. I still have a full set on my shelves. I will never get rid of them. Have a great weekend!

I also chose fantasy because of childhood reading - I don't think you can ever like anything better than the books you loved as a kid.

I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

Stressful, right?

Wrong!

Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.

NEW FOLLOWER. :)

Your answer makes sense...I am not sure I counted the way it should have been counted.

I only have 29 books waiting to be read...physical books that is. I hope I answered the question correctly.

Just stopping by to say hello and to take a look around.

I am having a Father's Day giveaway on my blog if you would like to stop by....it ends at midnight tonight.
