Who are your favorite authors? What is your favorite genre? Do you read once and discard, or save and re-read?

Personally I love Glen Duncan or Duncan Glen I always get his name mixed up as they're both first names to me! Particulary Love Remains by him, it's a very good story. I've taken into getting library books recently, although I've never thrown away a book I've read! I find it difficult to read again though. Currently I'm reading "Immediate Action" by Andy McNab.

Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, Ursula le Guin. I love sci-fi and fantasy. I have to read books twice, so I re-read. I notice I re-read books a year after reading the book the first time.

My absolute favorite author is Beatrice Small. She writes historical romance. I just finished reading her latest book and can't wait to see some more come out.

I personally feel that a free e-Book “So You Want to Start a business” available freely at www.BindalTech.com is worth reading.

My favoutire genre is fantasy and historical books (stories that happneds in some hystorical event). I am a fan of Harry Potters book and Lord of the ring (also most of the book is quiet tiresome to read).

My favourite authors are JRR Tolkien, David Eddings, Anne Rice, Piers Anthony, Dan Brown, Amy Tan... mostly fantasy and fiction novels are the general books that i like to read. I sometimes re-read, depending... but recently i come across too many good books that I could not find enough time to read all of them... so no time to re-read at the moment. I am currently reading Wicked by Gregory Maguire... prior to this was The Magic of Recluce (fantasy)and Harry and the Half Blood Prince...

I like to read once and discard , because I want to acquire as much knowledge and differnet persepectives so I read many differnet books. But sometimes its necessary to read the same book over to truly understand it.

Ayan Rand, Shidney Sheldon, Irwing Wallace, Agatha Christie Some of the very good books, I buy library edition so that it can be preserved for re-read and for generations of youngsters can read. I also love to read Readers Digest Condensed Books.

I love Sylvia Browne's books. She is my favorite author. I have reread books that I really enjoyed, like "Envy" and V.C. Andrews "Flowers in the Attic - Book of Shadows". I like all genres except Horror because I like to read before bed and don't like nightmares!

In reading over the posts in this thread, I have seen many of my favorite writers. Among them are Stephen King, Kay Hooper, Mary Higgins Clark, and Tami Hoag. I would have to add to those, Lisa Jackson, Heather Graham/Shannon Drake, Douglas Clegg, Tamara Thorne, and the list is just too long because I am always discovering new writers that I like. Mostly I gravitate toward psychological suspense, supernatural, mysteries, true crime, and horror books. Only recently have I read Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. I have to admit that I was hooked from the beginning and I loved the history aspect of it. If I really like a book, I keep it whether I re read it or not. I never know when I will be able to share that book with a friend. :)
