I love to read, it's a passion of mine. I have bookcases overflowing onto my floor with books, over 5,000 of them. There's nothing better to me than to settle into my bed or on the couch with a blanket and read. My favorite authors are Stephen King, Patricia Cornwell, Sue Grafton, Dean Koontz, Willem Diehl, John Grisham, Christine Feehan, Laurell K. Hamilton, and Janet Evanovich. I love mystery, suspense, true crime, horror, westerns, and historical works in general. I'll read anything if it's recommended to me if someone understands my tastes though I don't care for Star Trek type sci-fi stuff. I even suffered through Winslow's Forever Amber which to me was a waste of my money because someone told me if I liked Gone With the Wind I'd like it. How wrong they were. My favorite book would have to be Gone With the Wind followed by Susan Kay's Phantom or Mario Puzo's The Godfather. Leroux's original The Phantom of the Opera was enjoyable, but I liked the romance of Susan Kay's, and the past she created for Erik. I am an Erik lover, no doubt about it.

I have a fondness particularly for historical romances or fiction in general. Romance is a genre I used to snub my nose at, but to me right now there's nothing more enjoyable than sitting down for a couple of hours and reading about two people falling in love. Knowing that despite what happens in the book, they will more than likely end up "happy and together" (unless of course we're talking about Gone With the Wind) has its appeal. I read Kathleen Woodiwiss' The Flame and the Flower, The Wolf and the Dove and A Rose In Winter on a recommendation from a friend whose mother enjoys the same type of heroes I do, and I knew that I had opened up a whole new world. Thanks to a mailing list I'm a part of (Romance_Historical), I know that my love for historical romance is not just me *heh*.

If you would like to read a list of the books Stephen King read while he was recooperating from his accident, click here. I found it very interesting to see what HE reads as an avid fan of his not only as an author but as the human being he seems to be. He's someone that I think is truly grateful for where he is and what he has. Because of this, I will continue to buy his books until he decides it's time for the mighty pen of his to dry up and stop creating those frightening monsters and beings we all love to be terrorized by.
