What do you like to read? Prior to becoming a readers' advisory librarian, I loved cozy mysteries...and cozies only. I would read something if it had art history in it (Dan Brown being a favorite of mine). Other than that -- non-fiction.

However, all that changed when I took a job as an RA librarian. Now I find that I have a taste for thrillers (not too grisly please); horror (who knew?); and literary fiction (Mrs. Gorman my senior high school English teacher would drop dead on the spot to hear that).

So how about you? What types of books do you read? Scary? Romantic? Intellectual? Something else?
