When you read, what do you read? Most of the books I read fall within the sci-fi and fantasy genres, including alternate history in there. When not on those I lean toward action and adventure. I have no issue with long exposition or lengthy details as long as there are payoffs. I like whenever they are building a society. Rediscovering old technologies, adapting future tech, survival in inhospitable environments. This began, for me, with Heinlein's Tunnel in the Sky. Great book. Should've made that my fourth. I like a mystery coupled with a threat, a race to a goal or an execution of a master plan. I like bullets, magic, lasers and swords. I like huge ships, speedy fighters and high tech vehicles. I almost always lean toward books that have conflict and/or combat. Okay, your turn.
