Truthful Tuesday — Authors and Books

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know about the authors and books we like. He asks:

Do you have a favorite author? If so, who and why? If not, why not?

This is tough because it depends upon genre and my reading taste spans a lot of different genres. I like authors who transport me to a different place and/or a different time. Authors like James Clavell or James Michener. For sci-fi Isaac Asimov. Horror: Stephen King. Spy novels: Robert Ludlum. Fantasies: JRR Tolkien. Humor: Dave Barry. Shall I go on?

What was the first book you remember enjoying reading?

What three books best sum up your taste in literature?

Issac Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. James Clavell’s Shōgun.
