I don't think I have to mention her but
JK Rowling is my fave.
I'm a big fan of Dr Suess, especially since reading to Aidan every night.

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I didn't see a mention of Nicholas Sparks. I've read a few of his books and like them. It's been awhile since I could stick with books that take too long. I start too many at one time and get lost. Perhaps I should take them up again to help my insomnia.
