Tough decision. It's a tossup between the tennis player and the fish and chip dude. Hmmmmmmmm. OK! I've decided.
Arthur Ashe is my favorite arthur because I felt the other arthur(Treacher) used too much salt on his fish and chips.
:D :D :D :D :D

Murakami Haruki. (I can't believe I still need to read 1Q84, though!)
I especially love his short stories.

Of course I too read different genres depending on the mood of the day, but Barbara Kingsolver, Hemingway, Thoreau, Tolkien, JK Rowling, (altho A Casual Vacancy was carefully crafted but not on my all time list of favs we have read and seen all the HP)

Twain, Oscar Wilde, Victor Hugo, Alice Munro, Ayn Rand, Anias Nin, Douglas Adams, Asimov, Anne Lamott, Dickens, Poe, Agatha Christie, Pablo Neruda, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, (1oo Years of Solitude) Borges, Julia Alvarez,

but my all time fav for many years has been Isabel Allende, if you like Latin American magical realism and all that, none of her books are awful but hands down next to Gone WIth The Wind and Anna Karenina and Les Miserables you must have The House of the Spirits

I have a lot of favorites but they have changed through the years. Way back in the 80s it was Rosemary Rogers, then Jennifer Blake and Cassie Edwards. Back then I was going through my historic romance phase. Can't seem to get into those kind of books nowadays. Now is ones like Martina Cole, Jodi Picoult, Ann Rule (good true crime writer), to name just a few. And my want to read list just seems to grow and grow, I have gotten many books to read from you people here that give great reviews that peak my interest. My to read list include Susan Lewis, Terry Goodkind, Kimberly Chambers, Gillian Flynn etc etc etc. Thanks to those who have gotten me interested in other books .

I can't pick just one! Plus my favorites have changed over the years, as a kid I read a lot of CS Lewis, Roger Zelany and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.... and Doyle continues to be one of my all time favorites. As of now, besides Doyle...I like Ian Rankin, Tolkien, Terry Goodkind, Terry Brooks and Robert Jordan.

well ok maybe I have more than one favorite, but someone I haven't seen mentioned yet is John Irving.

Someone told me to read A Prayer For Owen Meany, which may be one of the best books of all time

Since then I have read The Ciderhouse Rules and A Widow for one Year and The Hotel New Hampshire. I recently picked up Setting Free the Bears at the library for ten cents.

I never feel richer than when there are half a dozen books sitting on the shelf that I haven't read yet!!!
