I read 2 good books this year in English,

Of Mice and Men-awesome book, taught me alot about what true friendship is.

The Giver- great book, kinda makes you paranoid to the point where you start to question the world around you.

The Oddyssy

Jim Butcher is a good fantasy/mystery/adventure/slightly-erotic author.


#18

Gordan Korman. Not a huge big time author, but he writes good books. I like realistic fiction.

Reading Philip K. Dick novels now - found a treasure trove of them at the local library that I’m going to work my way through.

I like a lot of books, mostly fantasy and sci-fi, my favorite at the moment though is The Complete Sherlock Holmes. It’s a real treat! I’m totally excited about The Lost Symbol too! ;D

Other than those, I really like Neil Gaiman, he’s absolutely brilliant!
