    My tastes are all over the board -- much like my taste in music. I range anywhere from spiritual applications to horror to biographies. I would have to say that one of my all time favorites, which I haven't read for quite awhile, was The Once and Future King by T. H. White. Anything by Douglas Adams is always a hit with me. Mists of Avalon was good, too. I know there are so many more, but can I think of them right off hand?.....noooooo.

    I just finished Terry Pratchett's Carpe Jugulum and I laughed out loud. It is part of the Discworld series that I am slogging through bit by bit.

    Other authors I like are Neil Gaiman, Dean Koontz, and Greg Isles. Some of the reads are stranger than fiction.

    Another one that made me laugh was The Devil Wears Prada. The movie did not do the book justice.
