I don’t get time to read as much as I’d like. Stephen King has been my favorite author for years. My favorite book is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Some Favorites:

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – Douglas Adams
The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R. Tolkien
The Dead Zone, It, The Green Mile, ‘Salem’s Lot, The Shining, The Long Walk, Night Shift (etc etc etc) – Stephen King
20th Century Ghosts – Joe Hill
World War Z – Max Brooks
1984 – George Orwell
Twilight Eyes – Dean Koontz
To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
High Fidelity – Nick Hornby
The Lovely Bones – Alice Sebold
Flowers for Algernon – Daniel Keyes
One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest – Ken Kesey
Battle Royale – Koushun Takami
The Colour Of Magic – Terry Pratchett

And not an absolute favorite but certainly one of the most interesting books I’ve read in a long time – Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn. I loved the original concept.

    • Thanks! I’m a bit mainstream and keep telling myself I should read more classics but just never seem to get the time. Plus, there are so many movies to watch… 😉 I really need to read the rest of the “Hitchhiker’s” books. Yeah – I haven’t read them as I was told not to bother but I really should anyway…

  1. If you haven’t read The Stand yet I highly recommend it. Even in the daylight It had me looking over my shoulder.

    • Know what’s funny? I read over half of The Stand but then life got in the way & I got way too busy to finish. By the time I had the time to read again, it had been too long & I knew I’d really have to start over from the beginning on The Stand. Just haven’t had the energy to do that yet… It’s very long! Lol. I feel awful about never having finished it, though – I adore King & it’s one of his only books I have yet to read. I really did enjoy the first half! ; )
