What books do you enjoy? I suppose all of the really good ones isn't a proper answer.  I adore Douglas Adams- British Sci Fi comedy.  I read lots of odd anthropology books, including archaeology journals, forensics and ethnographies. (I'm an anthropology student).  I love Maya Angelou for hard-hitting books.  I read lots of comic non-fiction Bill Bryson, Deric Longden, Cybill Sheppard.  I also love mysteries, like Stephan King and Laurie King, historical fiction, fanasty, and sci-fi.  I like books that have a reaction- they scare you, make you laugh, make you think, or touch your heart. 

Why are you interested in this community?  My inner romantic artist adores classic glamour and the films and icons that founded it.  (I am one of a rare breed of people who recognized the costume that Marilyn Monroe couldn't wear in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes due to the nude picture that had just come out that hangs in the restored Max Factor studio come fashion museum in Hollywood.  Well worth a visit for studio Hollywood buffs.)  So, I think I could definately find like- minded people in your community.  And lets face it, most of my friends have never heard of or seen my favorite films, so it'd be lovely to chat with people who have!
