Ok, I admit... I'm the weirdo with a soft spot for sci-fi and fantasy. ;) My favorite (rather specific) genre is "cyberpunk" but that one's not recognized by a lot of people. I also like horror, on occasion. Mostly Stephen King and his ilk (His son, Joe Hill, writes some gritty and amazing horror...)
On the flip side, I've been known to pick up books that I hear a lot of patrons talking about in the library. To that end, i've read some of Evanovich, Patterson, Cussler, Koontz... and then some of the ones that hit the best-seller lists from time to time. I always end up back in my little sci-fi / fantasy corner eventually, though.
