I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
I used to read these with my parents all the bloody time! Most of them were so loved that they had all fallen apart. This one was an exception because I got this one when I was much older. I had outgrown the reading level, but I hadn't outgrown the love of these characters.
