Reading is fun!


What can I say? I'm a bandwagon reader. I like the fastfood books of Michael Crichton and Robin Cook, and I like the "classics" of James Michener and James Clavell. I'm too shallow to like anything artsy or anything that can be described as literature. Ask me the next day about the book I just finished, I won't remember a thing.

Note that I haven't updated this page in years...I've read many books since, but not as many as I used to...


Authors I Like
Michael Crichton Fast-food books. You can read one of these in a day. They usually start better than they end, but I'm always intrigued by the plots. Favorite: Airframe
Stephen King All I can say is that I'm not the only one on the bandwagon. Favorite(s): Dark Tower Series
Robert Ludlum Spy novels. The hero ALWAYS saves the world just in time. Favorite(s): Bourne Identity & Matarese Circle
James Michener Embellished history. You can learn a lot without even knowing it. Favorite(s): Alaska, Chesapeake, & Texas
Robin Cook Michael Crichton's twin brother.
John Grisham Stole Scott Turow's thunder and never gave it back. Favorite(s): Rainmaker, Runaway Jury
Tom Clancy Classic good vs. evil. There's always a Dudley Do-Right. Favorite: Cardinal of the Kremlin
Dale Brown Tom Clancy stuff before Tom Clancy.
James Clavell Long books with more subplots than pages. Good stuff. Favorite: King Rat (but they are all so good!)
Herge The entire Tintin series is excellent. Favorite: The Black Island
Goscinny and Uderzo Asterix, Obelix, and Dogmatix are great. Like the Simpsons, adult humor in a cartoon.
