With due apologies to Shakespeare (which all of us grew reading; et tu Brutus), dont you feel that the sudden twists and the ability to surprise the audience(by whatever mode) makes all of us want more and more ofthe author.

For just timepass, i would definitely prefer sidney shelton.. Shakespeare`s works are too tragic and romantic.. The actual feel cannot be felt if they are read just like dat for time pass.... They require special concentration and inclination to read!!!!!

Definitely SHELDON. I'm reading one of his work now, Master of the Game, and actually I'm enjoying every time I flip in the pages. I just can't wait to finish it and try on his other works too. I thought for a while then that his work is a little boring and incomprehensible but I was wrong. Sheldon's works is indeed a masterpiece. Shakespeare's works on the other hand, I find them way to complicated and boring, I've tried it all, from reading his novels to seeing it in theaters but it never got my interest. I've only read and watch Shakespeare's because it is required at school. In short I was force to it. But some of my friends and colleagues enjoy his works, never for me though.

When I just want to pass the time I usually choose some light reading. I like fantasy and science fiction the most. My favorite author is Ann McCaffrey. She writes the 'Dragonriders of Pern' series among others. This is a good combination of both fantasy and science fiction.

I would actually choose Nora Roberts or even her Counterpart JD ROBB- I still haven't finished all her books and love very single one of them!

Neither. I've sort of outgrown Sidney Sheldon, having read most of his books when I was in highschool, and was not so impressed with his latter works. As for Shakespeare, I don't really consider his plays and poems light reading. When I choose to spend my time reading, I might as well, just pick any of my current paranormal romance novels on my TBR list. But yes, current fiction over classic plays would be my choice to spend my leisure reading.
