Almost all my friends read books.  Constantly.  They carry a book around with them, if they are in getting their oil changed, they are reading, going to a doctor or dentist appointment, they are reading.   I don't read books like I should.  I'm more of a magazine reader.  I found this  recent study though that says what you read reveals your personality. Here's what the study found:

  • Romantic Novels -- You're sensual and extremely intuitive. You're also optimistic and quick to bounce back from disappointments.
  • Biographies -- Inquisitive, cautious and ambitious, you investigate many options before making a decision.
  • Detective Books -- You enjoy mental challenges. An excellent problem solves, you'll tackle problems most people wouldn't touch.
  • Horror Stories -- Everyday life can be boring to you, so you seek excitement.
  • Science Fiction -- Highly imaginative and creative, you are fascinated by technology and like to plan for the future.
  • Westerns -- Extremely nostalgic and patriotic, you take pride in your self-reliance and go for the simple life.
