Love to read, have since I was quite young. Don't have a favorite book, but my favorite authors are:
Stephen King, Anne Rice, R.A. Salvatore, Anne McCaffrey, Robert Jordan, Terry Brooks, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jim Butcher, George R.R. Martin, and Hugh Howey. Bought a basic Kindle, which has opened up new books to read, since I don't like to read hard cover books and the mass market paperback format is being used less often.
I am also really into cycling. Not long after my car died in September 2007, I got back into riding a bike, mostly for transportation. Then as I lost weight (was 360 lbs when car died) and got more fit, cycling became a way of life for me. Someday I may once again be a car owner, but that is still a future event. Here's a list of miles ridden per year:
2012: 4000 (had a couple of set-backs, one that is chronicled in my blog)
I mostly listen to classic rock and oldies, but I do love Metallica! I even have CD's of Charlotte Church, Willie Nelson, and Shania Twain.
