>Off the Beaten Path>What do you read?
My favourite genre really is thriller/crime novels. Can't beat a good who done it. I've read a whole book on my Kindle just today and downloaded the next from that particular author.
I also read the news online on a daily basis, mainly through the BBC site and occasionally Sky. On the weekend I physically buy The Sunday Times broadsheet. Call me old fashioned but there's nothing better on a Sunday morning then curling up on the sofa with a strong cup of coffee and reading an actual paper.
I rarely read biographies or autobiographies but there are some I'm drawn to. There was a very harrowing one from a man who was an Irish gypsy and the violence and abuse he faced growing up. Stephen Fry's autobiography was a must read.
Useless running posts. But I'm trying to get better.
You're fine here, it's not about running.
I dig crime novels too. I dig adventure stories mostly though. I have read TONS of mountaineering stories, also like to read Literotica from time to time. I can think of at least 5 other ways to spend a Sunday morning, and none of them involve the paper.

I love mystery and psychological thrillers. My favorite authors are Michael Robotham, Jonathan Kellerman, Tana French, Gillian Flynn and John Grisham. I love Stephen King, too, although I don't typically read horror. He is just a bad habit developed when I was a teenager. I find that I listen to far more audiobooks than actually reading printed books. It's what I listen to on my runs. So, I guess this thread can still be about running.
When I run I feel like a swallow
Because you are free like a bird?
Nope, because of all the flies I eat.
So which audiobooks do you recommend?
Love reading! Big fan of philosophy and I am reading George Sheehans Running and Being which is awesome. Writing some as well. Just started a blog as well http://thestraightrace.blogspot.com about my journey of faith, the self, and running. I am also am looking for other good running blogs to read! Anyone know of any?
