my fave book is probably "sophie's world" by jostein gaarder

i also like:
-kathy reich's books, think i have them all
-bryce courteny- got all of his too
-john marsden's tommorrow series
-the flowers in the attic series

i'm also a sucker for fantasy books.. i like Tamora Pierce's books and i have to admit i've read the Harry Potter series at least 4 times.. lol (keep in mind i'm 19 and was actually a kid when they first came out)

Hi People
My faviourite books are:
anything by Terry Pratchett
Katherine Kerr
Rober Jordan
Jenny Nimmo (children's author)
Garth Nix
and any decent sci-fi / fantasy books

Working in a library i get to read a lot of kids fiction and they are ALLLLLL superb, special ones would have to be Mem Fox, Margaret Wild, Tedd Arnold (Help, I'm falling apart!) and the Lola and Charlie books, they are good too!
Nothing i like better than to curl up with a good book and shut out the world for a couple of hours........heaven. :lol:

Oooooh Fairie, i loved the Diana Gabaldon books, isn't Jamie fraser just the hunkiest man youv'e ever known????? he was pretty stubborn and pig headed too, but i really enjoyed reading their saga.
Both my parents are scottish and it was good talking to dad about some of the historical aspects of the book.
