Thanks Gate....

First question...

Any particular genre? Or TV related? Or whatever?

I have much love for science fiction, fantasy, mystery, serious drama (think Kingsolver), not so much for chick lit. No shades of grey for me.....

Yes to Sci-Fi, fantasy, mystery, serious drama, horror, & techno-thrillers. No to romance, non-fiction, westerns, & classics.

I will read pretty much anything. I don't usually read non-fiction but will try anything. I can't wait! Never been in a book club which is weird since that has always been my first love, lol.

I don't really care for books with a lot of gore, so I tend not to read horror. I do read urban fantasy (which at times can have horror elements), mysteries, science fiction. Over the spring I read Blackout and All clear, which I bet KMI has already read. I will read romance and chick lit, but not very often. Then again there is a good amount of romance available in some urban fantasy like the Sookie books. I read a classic every once in awhile, but wouldn't do that with you all. I read a lot of best sellers when they are out in paperback or a year or two later cheaper in hardcover.

I do read chick lit, but only a few a year, same with nonfiction (last one I read was The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, which was a mixture of history and a memoir about going to the Amazon in present day). The last book I read with some sort of a western character was about a ghost sheriff from the wild west and a private investigator living in on Long Island and what happens. That was a weird cozy mystery.

So Gate you wouldn't read a non-fiction memoir by a favorite musician or actor?

I can't answer for Gate but I know I wouldn't. They are never really written by the person, plus there is no actor or musician that impresses me enough to read about their lives.

No not usually. I will watch them 'promote' their book on TV but I feel I get enough of it there. I have Steve Jobs book and since he wasn't around to promote it I will eventually read that.

Gate will you pick the first book?

I liked them, but enjoyed the first more than the second. There is less of a time travel element (spend a lot of time in the past) than I expected if that makes any sense.
