Current NaNoWriMo tally: 3471 words
Out of the various reading preferences I run across, it seems like many people only stick with one type of reading. "I only read westerns," or "I'm a romance novel gal." Or even the dreaded, "I only like non-fiction; novels are a waste of time."
And I wonder, is there any type or catagory of book--fiction or non, philosophy or sci-fi, local authors or international--that you stick with over others? And, if you go far with it, are you someone that only reads a certain type of book, no exceptions? Gimme some answers, folks.

I tend to jump around, but I go through phases.
I'll get in a mood where one syle suits me better than anything else, or I'm curious about the appeal of a certain genre.
The last few months I've been in sci fi -- reading through Orson Scott Card's Ender series, and Asimov's Foundation series
I've been through a spy novel phase, historical novel phase, flirted briefly with chic lit (an unsuccessful relationship), and for years have been trying to absorb as many of the classics as I can obtain.
On the non fiction side, I really like books about science, archeology, and anthropology (esp. when talking about the creation/evolution debate), biographies if well done, history, and practical Christianity.
I avoid horror, motivational, political, and romance.
If I had to pick one to stick with indefinintely I'd probably go with ...
