    Hi everyone

    What a great idea YorkieLass starting this thread!

    I love to read, but I'm not able to hold a book and turn the pages now, due to the arthritis in both hands, so I read on my Kindle Fire and balance it on my hands, but I agree reading a book is so much better than electronically, but having said that I've now got used to it and it's easier to carry round with you, especially going on holidays.

    I enjoy reading J K Rowling, Tolkien, Wilbur Smith, Agatha Christie, Paul O'Grady, The Hairy Bikers, Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs, James Patterson, Clive Cussler, Harlen Cobin, John Grisham, Jeffrey Archer, Karin Slaughter, Tess Gerritson, some of Stephen King but to name a few.

    We have an entire room, floor to ceiling bookshelves containing loads of fiction and non-fiction.

    I read a lot of the same authors as you. LOVE to read!

    I love to read too. Always loved it. I recognize many authors but there are some I don't know. Will have to check them.

    I love whodunit and mysteries. I was a fan of sci-fi for many years but now I prefer fantasy. Love to be transported to magic worlds.

    For those that love whodunit with a slow pace and good characters development, check out Louise Penny and her Inspector Gamache.

    I still read "books" but I prefer to read on my tablet with the kindle app. Love the adjustments we can make about the light, the size of text, the contrast and the light weight

    Me too, I've been an avid reader since little girl....... Unfortunately just now because of all the daily medication I'm on my eyes get extremely blurry most days.... So I tend to read on my iPad as I can adjust the font size...

    I like Autobiographies too depending on who it is. I'm busy reading Alan Cumming - Not my Fathers Son (I follow him as an Actor, loving most things he's been in) he had such a bad childhood, so far the book is excellent..
    I'm a big Martina Cole fan, read everything of hers so far. To name a few more, I can go from James Herbert to good romance like Danielle Steel, Bella Andre, Melody Anne, Melody Grace.... I loved the Flowers in the Attic Trilogy by V C Andrews.... Like Dawn French, Dickens, Catherine Cookson, Jane Austin.... My list is endless....

    If I love a book I can read it in a day, being housebound in poor health well that's easy to do some days.... I would like to read what Yorkie is currently reading.... The Hairy Bikers.... So I think that's next for me...

    I still like to get proper books sometimes just needing the real thing...... Yorkie thank you for this great thread......

    Graylady, I have read all of Louise Penny's books. Gamache is a great character. I like how she gets into the emotional side of the characters. I'd love to go visit Three Pines.

    I'm afraid I don't read classics, I do have paperbacks but now use the kindle app to read. I enjoy a good romantic comedy but my favourite books are stories set around the war, I love Rosie Goodwin, Pam Weaver, Joan Jonker, and Katie Flynn (always cry when reading hers) to name a few.
