I looooove to read - I read like a dervish, often
devouring books in a day or a couple of days. What's more I read
almost anything - Science Fiction, War, Romance, Comedy, if it's
on paper, I'll certainly have a go. I also have a personal rule
that I will try my very very best to never give up on a book -
after all - it might get better, even if it seems to start weakly...
The only exception I have ever come across, where no matter how
hard I tried, no matter how many TIMES I tried, I couldn't get
through a book was (and yes, I know its a classic - one of the
best books ever - yada yada) The Lord Of The Rings.
You can see what I've been reading recently here.
I also regularly re-read books that have really
caught my imagination or my attention. Of all the books I have
read, and I have neither the webspace or the memory to list them,
two series stand out - I'm a big fan of series' of books - I like
to follow a character as they develop, something which is, by
necessity, limited in single novels.
Two of my all time favourite series are:
Guide To The Galaxy, by Douglas Adams
The Seafort Saga, by David Feintuch
I also find myself regularly returning to work
by the following Authors (in no particuar order) :
Stephen King, Robert Heinlein, Diane Duane, Peter
David, Douglas Adams (he did write more than just HHGTTG), John
Grisham, and, of course, I'm a Potter fan, so J. K. Rowling also
makes this list.
