Alright for those of you who still read "books" name your favorite authors or poems or anything that involves reading.

I will Start, my favorite author is Edgar Allan Poe and my favorite story from him is "Berenice"
I also really like " A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole,

My favorite author would definitely be Adeline Yen Mah who's the author of "Chinese Cinderella" and "Falling Leaves"

They were both very good and touching books. I definitely recommend them to everyone out there.

I have so many. My door is almost blocked by stacks of books.
Agatha Christie is alot of fun. I like the Brontes and Jane Austin, just period peices in general. Ayn Rand is good, but alittle initimidating.I really enjoy John Grisham and Frank McCourt. But my 2 favorites,by far, are Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Long Day's Journey Into Night by Eugene O'Neil.

Fitzgerald is great. Milan Kundera is good--I really liked Immortality and Unbearable Lightness of Being. Hemingway's "the Sun Also Rises" and "For whom the Bell Tolls" are amazing.
"Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" by Murakami if you want a mind-bender. If you've seen Haibane you'll notice a lot of parallels with that book. Oscar Wilde still makes me laugh out loud. My favorate author right now is Jorge Luis Borges. Get the "Collected Fictions."

The Sci-Fi novels that i've enjoyed lately were Perdido Street Station by China Melville and The Diamond Age by Neal Stephanson. I also like most of Ursula LeGuin's stuff. Dune is still my favorite S/F novel.
