No not at all, I realize that those kinds of bookstores cater to both the SF and Fantasy crowds together, can you take a joke?  :lol:

Can you tell a funny joke?

Maybe I didn't get your joke because I have no idea who that author is. Instead of seeing a joke, I only interpreted pointless complaining.

Awww so sad.  Perhaps the sarcasm could have been more obvious.  Sorry  :(

Maybe... but I'm also probably finding it hard to laugh right now, because my mother is still in surgery after 9 hours of having her tits cut off, and I'm supposed to be studying for an exam tomorrow... but I really really can't fucking think math right now... at all.

Good luck on your exam, and if it helps, my father survived cancer as did one of my best friends mothers (she had breast cancer).  I understand how you feel in your circumstance.

I wouldn't expect it to be an option since I am probably the only one on the board that would pick it, but 90% of what I read is Torah (thats the Bible to the rest of y'all).

The remaining 10% is philosophy, and literature.

Wait, are you here to take Joelberg's place? Because we already have our token Jew. You sound a lot more interesting than Joelberg though...maybe we can have you two fight to the death (hand-to-hand Jew combat)?

No no, he's not taking my place, no-one ever will.  But he is pretty philosophical and more religious than me.

If you pick one of the "other" categories... Please consider suggesting a category, and I will consider adding it.

Your answers are editable, so if I add a suitable option you will be free change your answers to reflect that option.

Also, if you feel like sharing your favorite magazines, publications or book publishers...... Go for it.

I picked Other Nonfiction to account for "Academic" books.  While there are books about history stuff (I also picked Art/History/Culture), a lot can tend to be too plebe-pleasing to really get anywhere in the field I want to jump into someday, which I consider to be a slight different than some of the stuff I read.
