Hey Circles24, what's your favorite book of all time? My favorite isn't a book by one of my top 10 writers. It's "Flowers For Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. He's written just a few books. Steve, AKA Mwatersfan

mine has to be the narrative poem The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. Or maybe The Blue Speckle Band by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the group and love to read. I will try to list my favorite authors, but it might be that I have a favorite book by that author. And they are in no certain order and I'm sure I will leave out some. But here goes: John Steinbeck, Lee Smith, Pat Conroy, Jean Auel, Amy Tan, James Michener, Haven Kimmel, Janet Evanovich, Charlaine Harris, John D. McDonald, Andrew Greeley, James Lee Burke, Billie Letts, Alexander McCall Smith, Jonathan Kellerman..and the list goes on and on. I don't think I could ever pick a favorite author or book. I love so many and so many different kinds. I recently read 'People of the Book' by Geraldine Brooks and I really enjoyed it. Thanks for letting me join your group.

what is your favorite genre of writing?

my favorite genre is probably suspense/mystery because I just devour them. But those that stay with me are usually truth based novels or autobiographical. What about yours? And Circles 24, what does your avatar say (mean)? It is unusual and I like it.

I honestly do not know what the words mean. I picked the avatar because I like the TV show Johnny Bravo and the colors reminded me of Ireland. (The words seem like they maybe Irish Gaelic?) I am glad you like my avatar. I think he's neat.
My favorite genre is mysteries/suspense too.
Have you read James Patterson novels? Or the classic Sherlock Holmes?

May I ask how you came up with you screen name?

Yes, I have read James Patterson and I really liked him, but I may have burned myself out on him. I read a few Sherlock Holmes books when I was younger and really enjoyed them, but I have not read any after my 20's. I had a hard time picking an avatar...they were mostly sci-fi or toons and there were none I really identify with. And I do like classic Bogey will do. My screen name is just the first initials of my husband, me and our 3 daughters. And if I may ask, why Circles24?

What genre do your favorite authors write? Would you tell me a little about the books they write so I will know if I should check them out too. Thanks. Have a great day.

I love suspense mystery fiction and crime non-fiction books. My alltime favorite author is Jonathan Kellerman. And of course James Patterson's books. But I thoroughly enjoy Stacy Dittrich's CeeCee Gallagher fiction books.

For the last couple years I've been trying to read more new authors and I really like Abigail Lurae's 'Birthplace of Evil' (fiction) also.

I strongly feel that Joseph Heller is incomparable... he is one unique writer and I have not come across his kind of writing... SO I love Heller and adore his writings... besides him....

My favorites are:

1) Mario Puzo
2) Fredrick Forsyth
3) John Grisham
4) Jeffery Archer
5) Sidney Sheldon
6) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
7) Daniel Desilva
8) Dan Brown
9) Ayn Rand
10) Wilbur Smith
11) James North Patterson

I am glad to see that I am not the only one who enjoys mysteries and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There is a new Sherlock Holmes movie coming out on Christmas Day. I can't wait to go see it. I have started reading Christopher Moore novels; he writes humor. Some of his novels are extremely hilarious.

I would agree with the choice of "The Raven."
Favorite authors would include Elizabeth George, Stephen King, MC Beaton, John Grisham, and Jane Austen.
