There's a lot of good authors out there, but there will always be that one author and his books that you love. Writing a book is no easy task. It requires a lot of work, patience, imagination, and creativity. I haven't tried to write one myself but after reading some great books, you will understand and feel how the authors put their heart and all into it. My favorite author is Jostein Gaarder. He's a Norwegian author of fantasy/philosophical/children fiction books. I don't know you guys ever heard of him but his book are really good and you'll learn a lot from them too. Another author that I personally love is Stephen Fry. He's a british comedian/author/personality. What I love about his books is the he tells his stories. Pretty laid back and with just the right amount of humor on it. Some people might not like the way he writes but I absolutely like his books. How about you guys? Share your favorite author here.

Classical writer: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Even in victorian english, he gan get people hooked for generations with the style and flare and plot twists. And I'm not only talking about Sherlock Holmes. Contemporary writer: John Green and Yuval Noah Harari. The former is a fiction author with a catchy unusal writing style. The latter is a human evolutionary historian who puts the status of mankind in perspective in his two bestselling books. Another writer in my vernacular language (Bengali) is Satyajit Ray. The man is the ultimate definition of artist, his literary works matching his songwriting and masterpieces of celluloid.

Oh yeah! I forgot to write about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I've read all of his Sherlock Holmes work when I was young and that's what made me love books and reading. I haven't had the chance to read his other works though. I'll try to search for them.next time. But man, I miss Sherlock and Watson.

I am not sure that I could actually list all my favorite authors but I will try to list a few of them for you. Reading is my favorite pastime and try to do it as much as I can. Harlan Coben Neil Gaiman James Patterson Sir Conan Doyle Agatha Christie Jo Nesbo (Norwegian author of children's books as well as adult crime fiction) Those are all that I can think of right now. Happy book shopping!!
