If so, what books and authors do you like?

I like Michael Crichton, Frederick Forsyth, Jack Higgins, Christian Jacq, H.G. Wells, Alistair MacLean, JRR Tolkien and I used to love Roald Dahl when I was younger.

Now, for books, the Jurassic Park ones and Jaws are probably my favourites.

I also enjoy reading a lot of sports books.

I love reading!

Stephen King is my favorite author ever. But I try reading from new authors.

I usually only read one book at a time, but I'm currently reading:

Wolf's Trap
Cannibal Killers
The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers



Then I'm going to start reading The Scarlet Letter for school.

My favorite book ever is probably The Green Mile.

I'm such a fuckin lazy reader, and I'm very ashamed to say it.

It takes me quite a while to actually read a book, unless it keep dragging my attention all the way through.
I think Stephen King is a brilliant story teller, but I haven't been able to sit and read one of his books from beginning to end because he drags along with too many details.

In general, I prefer short stories to novels.

Ray Bradbury, Michael Chabon, Steve Almond, Anna Gavalda, Aimee Bender, Hannah Tinti.

And I especially love the flash fiction (1000 - 1500 words to a story)and micro-fiction (500 words or less to a story) genres.

(That doesn't include the little stupid stories). :P

I like to read. Some of my favs are Danielle Steel, VC Andrews, Kathllen E Woodiwiss...that all for the romance department so far.

I like Jack Higgins...I thought "Angel Of Death was excellent.

Hmmmm...there's a lot of books I've read, but I've only read that one book by that particular author; John Ferris, Agatha Christie, Stuart Woods, Minette Walters.

There's so many I've read and liked :)
