Any Readers Here??

hi all, i was wondering if there are any readers among us...besides myself!!

i love to read, stephen king, dean koontz and anne rice are my favs.

i have just started the new james patterson novel "big bad wolf".
it's a new one in the alex cross series and is pretty good so far, but am just about 100 pages into it.

I love Chick Lit. Bridget Jones is one of my faves. Also the Shopaholic series is pretty funny. Anything by Jasper Fforde is excellent - he has a whole series of books that I adore. If you love to read you HAVE to read Fforde

I just finished Anne Rice's Blackwood Farm which was pretty good. I loved her stories about the witches, but not so much the vampire stories but this book incorporated them both very well.

*sigh* I love to read - I could go on for days....

Now that I am out of school for a little bit I have more time to read... I used to read a novel a day, I was quite a fast reader but nowadays it takes me awhile to finish!

I love V.C. Andrews books, and does anyone have any ideas for similar books like that?? I am almost done reading all of her series...

I just got some Stephen King books at Half Price Books, they were on sale for 80 cents!!

Judy Devereaux is good too but I like V.C. Andrews more...

I tend to read various political commentary books, survival guides, and the occasional (auto)biography.

As for political commentary, I read Bill O'Reilly's work and I enjoyed Alan Colmes' book.

I used to read a lot of fiction when I was younger, but haven't read one in a long time.

I love to read--especially James Patterson. I have all of his books except for three. I like Anne Rice, Dean Koontz, Sue Grafton, and so many others. I am currently reading a Tess Gerritsen book.

Has anyone read The Devil Wears Prada? I bought it awhile back, but haven't read it yet. I know it's about a woman and her horrible witch of a boss--it sounds kind of amusing. I don't normally read that type of book--usually I read suspense/murder mysteries.

I love to read too! I'm still in Junior High ( I told that to everyone by now), so no matter if you like to read or not, you still gotta! I really like Harry Potter ( evnthough I know lots of people hate it for some reason. ==> to you un Harry Potter fans!), but you can't blame me for liking the books....I'm only 13!!!

Hello Hello=^..^= usually I just lurk this board until I see a topic I'm compelled to respond to. I am a big reader time permitting and my fav author is Larry McMurtry. I fell in love with his writing when I read the first sentance in Lonesome Dove. Since then I have read almost everything he has written. Now I am reading The Wandering Hill by him which has bummed me out a bit because it's the second of a series and I can't find the first. I also like Anne Rice have read the vampire series, and read a lot of Dean Koontz although I have found his books to be much too simular for my taste. As for Harry Potter, Maymariya I have had adults tell me to read the series because they enjoyed them so much. So far I have to admit I haven't but I have seen the movies and enjoyed them. I also like to read books on the English royal family and Queen Elizabeth I is my fav. subject. In short I like to read anything even a soup can when thats all I have.

I also am a big reader at times. Before my children were born I read everyday, now I dont have the time to get into a book all that much.

I dont really have a favorite author...I can read anything I get my hands on as long as it is a story. I read childrens books ( I just finished the Laura Engalls series last summer) and romance novels, I love a thriller or a mystery. I dont think I have really found a story book, fiction or non that I didnt like. The only stipulation is that it tells a story.

Mariya I love Harry Potter...although I havent had the time lately to get into one of those huge books. We have both movies so far and our whole family watches them together. Another movie we really love to watch together is The Lord Of The Rings Series. We have only seen the first one so far...and plan to buy all three as soon as avaliable.
