I'm also an avid reader. Mostly Sci-fi, horror or murder mystery. But the one book that I have read mutiple times is The Stand by Stephen King. I'm actually thinking about a second reading of the Gunslinger series now.


Oooooooh loved that one. Took weeks and weeks to get through and I was mad about it all the way.


I read it in about 3 days the first time! I just couldn't put it down.

Anything by Sidney Sheldon :) I've read all his books. Really enjoyed the whole Left Behind series. The Shining by Stephen King is another favorite. I've now switched to audio books because I never have time to sit down and read a book but I can listen to audio books on my daily commute.

Loved:

The entire Dragon Prince series by Melanie Rawn

Mutant Message Down Under.. by Marlow Morgan (I know there is much controversy around the facts of this book but the reading was brilliant)

The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon .. (three novels in one)

Anything by Anne Rice.. she is brilliant in my opinion.. especially her erotica which was writen under the name Anne Rampling.

Swan Song by: Robert McCammon Terrifying yet full of hope after a nuclear holocaust.

And of course.. The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield Hmm speaking of which I need to read this one again.. *nods*

**** has anyone heard of: The Purpose Driven Life?? I was told by some man on the plane coming home from Germany that I needed to read it ;) ****

Post 2: For more..
I am an insane reader ruined by online writing and I haven't read anything in hardcopy form in years.

I like the whole Stephen King Lot..
The initial part of his atlantis book, the talisman, The Stand, It, Green Mile, The shining umm.. and a whole lot more that I can't remember.

Anne Rice is pretty good too though she has a tendency to ruin her own characters in later books. If she brings out a book dedicated to one of her characters run away as fast as you can.

Pride and prejudice is as close to a romance novel as I can get...

*Silently roots for Harry Potter*

The one book I was disappointed in was the da vinci code.. Good facts but really bad writing (I actually hadn't cared to read it but an 11 year old convinced me I should.. hey I have ego issues. an 11 year old top me at anyhting.. ). Angels and Demons was a tad bit better since it had more stuff going on and I read it on the day they were deliberating about the new pope so it was very much in context with the world situation.

Ps:: Is it just me or does Stephen King really have a thing for writing about pretty 12 year old boys.. It's just once you've read quite a bit of them the trend becomes a little obvious..creepy..

I used to really enjoy "Life after CHiPs - The Erik Estrada Story", but got to be boring after memorizing both pages.
