  1. I often have 2 or more books going at once, but I try to concentrate on one main book. I'll start one, usually something long, and then I'll intersperse that with shorter books, or easier books. But when I do that, I try to finish the new book before going back to the original. We all have our quirks, I guess!
  2. 1. J.R.R. Tolkien 2. Jane Austen 3. Charles Dickens 4. Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (they write together) 5. John Sandford 6. Marianne Frederikson 7. Charlotte Bronte 8. Stephen King 9. Clive Barker 10. Anne Rice
  3. The Stand and The Talisman are two of my favorite books, not only of Stephen King's, but of all time! I think what makes The Stand so scary is that the situation in which the human race finds itself is all too believable. How do we know that the government isn't busy creating superbugs that could wipe out 99% of the world's population? I would find it harder to believe that they weren't!
  4. I quite liked The Children of Hurin, but I was already familiar with the story, having read The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales. I liked that the narrative flowed so smoothly, which in the story's earlier forms had been somewhat lacking. This is one of the more complete stories that Tolkien ever wrote, so it was nice to see it in such a complete form. As for The Lord of the Rings, it's probably my all-time favorite book! I'm not a fan of fantasy at all, so I don't really have anything to compare it to, but I think that Tolkien accomplished something amazing when he wrote this book.
  5. Hello, everyone! I'm new here, but I'm really looking forward to getting to know all of you. I love to read and am in the process of getting my B.A. in Humanities, with my major concentration in English Literature. After that, I may enter a MLIS program to become a librarian.
