I don't do books, but i love a good mag. that is sci-fi related and has to do with science or astrology.

I like all kinds of books, fantasy, adventure, etc. Some books I can think of off the top of my head are Ender's Game, Eragon, Across the Nightingale Floor, Holes, Harry Potter (yeah I'm 10 years old at heart), even a few sports books (mainly biographies). I read To Kill a Mockingbird just recently in my english class, it started out really boring, but got better around the middle and end of the book. My favorite part of the book was the Tom Robinson trial.
