I read...a lot! X3

Tolkien, Eddings, Martin, and Jordan are what I currently read in fantasy. But I read so many other authors of various genres like Stephen king, Douglas Adams, Alexander Dumas (the count of monte cristo is by far my favorite book), H.P. Lovecraft, JK Rowling, and my favorite author Edgar Allen Poe.

However if you want to talk Tolkien I'm your guy, huge fan of him. I've read LOTR, hobbit, silmarillion, most of the histories of middle earth, the children of hurin, and various other little tales of his. And I'm trying to fidn time to read The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrin.

I really like Dean Koontz, Patricia Cornwell, Michael Connelly, and recently I have read some books by Jodi Picoult. I read House Rules by Jodi Picoult about a month ago. It's about an older teenager with Asperger's Syndrome whose love of solving crime scenes gets him into trouble. It's a very heartwarming book which incorporates a little humor along the way.

It is. If you have ever read My Sister's Keeper, you should like House Rules.

I usually listen to an audiobook in the car, plus have a couple of ebooks going on my Nook. I read anything I can get my hands on except true crime and horror. Here's some mystery authors I have enjoyed. NOT FOR KIDS!!! Both have have some seriously graphic content! J. D. Robb's (AKA Nora Roberts) In Death Series is great! Another I really enjoyed is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy.

I've never read either one. I need to find something good to put on my Kindle.

Re-reading Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensbility for my essay. Just finished my Importance of Being Earnest essay a while back. I love Oscar Wilde.

Life.

If you like Pride and Prejudice read The Scarlet Pimpernel and Lorna Doone. Both are great love stories!
