The list author says: "I like well-written books that take me to another world. If there's a touch of magic or fantasy, all the better. I stopped reading about vampires after Interview with a Vampire. You may think that some of the "romance" genre books in this list are not "well-written," but the writing is better than a lot of the others in the genre (IMHO). I read for entertainment, not self-improvement - hence the "light" reading and absence of "literature." If you have a favorite that you think I might like, please let me know. I stay away from books with graphic violence and serial killers, no stomach for that."
