    haha, don't feel bad. I Always had to go back & pick the other option because I always picked the one where you died!

    When I got into my teens I was all about teen fiction, all those vampire & scary stories. Somewhere in boxes buried I still have a great collection. It was what got me into writing my own stories.

    I liked the CYOA series in my teens. In fact. I still do. As a member of the Sci-Fi book club. I have several books that I haven't read yet. Time constraint. As of this post. I'm in the middle of reading Shadows of the Empire, Vector Prime (both Star Wars tales). Journey to the West, American Gods (by Neil Gaiman) The Return of the King (Yes that one. My mom had the original copy as well as the Hobbit) and yes. I have some comic novels including Kingdom Come, the Dark Phoenix Saga, Secret Wars, Darkseid vs Galactus: the Hunger, and Crisis on Infinite Earths. I had Batman vs Predator but lost it.


    But that is another story.

    favorite authors (read most of their books) and the music that I play while reading them:

    As a kid
    * David Eddings
    * Anne McCaffery
    * Terry Brooks
    * R.A. Salvatore
    * Robert Jordan

    As an adult
    * Robert Jordan
    * Terry Goodkind
    * The New Jedi Order series (too many different authors, 23 books, it's all good)

    And the all time most read (by me)
    * the Bible (yes, I'm religious, so sue me)
    * the Book of Mormon (yes, I'm LDS too)

    Music to listen to:
    * PM Dawn (of course)
    * Enya (because you don't have to listen to it, it's calming background noise and the early celtic stuff is cool)
    * Techno/House/Trance (especially trance, again just to have the sound there).

    I suffer from tinitis, so I need to have some sound at all times or I hear this really annoying ringing in my ears that drives me nuts. That's why I listen to music when reading. And then when I hear the song again, I remember specific parts of the books.

    In grade school, there is no book we went crazier over than "Green Eggs And Ham!"

    Other than that, any book that dealt with creating arts & crafts or painting, I was into.

    I'm glad to see that my reading taste has grown up quite a bit!
    I love the summer months!
