I would love to write my own book. Hopefully this dream will come true, as I am currently working on finishing my novel that I started for the National Novel Writing Month challenge.

I enjoy many different types of books, but mysteries are my favorite. My favorite books are Lee Goldberg's adaptations of the television series Monk. He has a firm grasp on the personalities of the characters, and his books portray Chief Randy Disher much better than he ever has been portrayed on the show. I just finished reading through Goldberg's 15th and final Monk book. It was a fitting end to the series, but I'm sad to see it go. I really enjoyed them.

I also enjoyed Robert Dean Foster's novelization of the LucasArts adventure game The Dig. Some of the scenes in the game seemed as if they were lacking a bit of substance, and the novel helped fill in the blanks, which made me enjoy the game even more.

I just got an iPad, so I'm using iBooks to read through a lot of the public domain books I've always wanted to read, or read when I was a kid or teenager and have mostly forgotten.

I just read through A Study in Scarlet, the first of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes books, and I enjoyed it a lot. I'm definitely putting the rest in my to-read list.

I'm reading The Blazing World by Margaret Cavendish now. It's one of the first science fiction books, about an alternate world which can be accessed through the Earth's North Pole, written by Margaret Cavendish, the Dutchess of Newcastle, in 1666). The book's alternate world contains talking animals and insects which walk upright and covers everything from the known science of the time, to philosophy, religion, and politics. I scoured the internet for a free ePub of this book, but couldn't find it, so I decided to make my own. I've released my eBook of The Blazing World to the public domain, and you can get it in ePub format here or Mobi format here.
