Favorite Authors?

Stephanie

I recently wrote a blog post on how I finally broke down and bought a Kindle. I had been against the idea of an e-reader for the longest time but now that I have one, I am reading so much more than I have in at least a dozen years. Right now, I’m re-reading one of my favorite old Stephen King books, The Talisman.

I’ve been downloading many of the free books available for the Kindle and for the 1st time ever recently read Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book and The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. (Yes, I cried) I feel like a kid again exploring the world through books. While I love the feel and smell of paper, I’d rather be reading e-ink than not reading at all.

Since I’ve been out of the realm of fiction for a very long time, I’m wondering if you would share a few of your favorite authors/books with me. Old or now, doesn’t matter. Since I can download samples for free with my Kindle, I’m eager to see what I’ve been missing.

  1. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See; all of Stieg Larsson’s books; and Murakami’s Sputnik Swetheart, Windup Bird Chronicles, Kafka on the Shore, and Norwegian Wood. Also, James Patterson’s Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas and Robert James Waller’s Bridges of Madison County. There’s still a lot more, but these will do for now. Happy reading, Stephanie! :)

  3. Johnathan Safran Foer is hands down my favorite contemporary writer. “Everything is Illuminated” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” are fantastic novels, overflowing with the sheer joy and sorrow and serendipity of humanity.
