Saqib says that science fiction is "da bomb," and gives his opinion of other categories as well.
Kristi Wachter narrows her favorite category to a single authors, before listing "a few second favorites."
Duane's interests are wide-ranging.
Florinda doesn't have a favorite genre, but instead ponders why we read, and what qualities she looks for in a book.
Sarah lists quite a few authors and categories, arranged on her shelves with a proto-librarian's eye.
Kiva confesses to book binging in a variety of categories, including science fiction and fantasy.
