    Ok, just found a new children's author to add to my favorites list... Kate DiCamillo (author of The Tale of Despereaux). I finished The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane tonight. It's a quick read, very simple, but it's been a long time since a book brought me to tears like this one did. So heart-warming, yet so heart-breaking...

    Now moving on to Desereaux and soon the rest of her books.

    Hehehe. Yes. I've read the backs of several of them. And I am a fan of Dean Koontz on Facebook, plus I get his newsletter and I always LOVE when I read those little things. So cute and so funny.

    Trixie Koontz, who is dog, has written 4 books now. I bought two of them for my mom for Christmas. "Bacon is good. I am good. Yet I am not bacon. Why? Mystery."

    I will check for it. I know he also wrote a Christmas book by "Trixie Koontz, dog." He's my all time favorite author and I love his humor. Plus, I am sure the memoirs of Trixie would be fabulous.

    I've read every book he has ever written except for his Frankenstein series (I have the first in the series, but haven't yet read it) and the Trixie books. I even read his graphic novels.

    You should read "A Big Little Life: Memoirs of a Joyful Dog" by Dean Koontz. While completely unlike his typical novel, this memoir is a MUST for pet lovers! I think you'd like it, EG.

    @funja have you read any books by Garth Nix?
    If you havent then i would seriously recommend them especially shades children or the first of a series sabriel they are very deep and fast paced with amazing stories i got completely lost in their worlds. If you like modern stuff set in the future read shades children if you like more magic stuff read sabriel.
    He also wrote the keys to the kingdom series (last book lord sunday isnt out yet) theyre a bit wierd and take a while to get used to but great anyway read mister monday and if you like it read the next one.
    He is now my fav author of all time, (sorry JK youve been replaced)
    Hes a bit like eoin colfer crossed with tolkien (imo anyway)

    Read them both i actually did a book report on them i liked them i would recommend them to anyone who likes books that have a hint at love yet underlying turmoil followed by one tough decision after another so many twists youll be dying for the next one to come out waiting for september to roll around (stepahnie Meyer reviewed catching fire and said "I was so obsessed with this book that i had to take it with me out to dinner and hide it under the edge of the table so i wouldnt have to stop reading. The story kept me up for the several nights in a row, because even after i finished i lay in bed wide awake thinking about it....." The end of the second book threw a big twist right at the end so you sit there reading that last sentence and jsut stare and say well what happend next

    Edit: Between books currently just finished the newest Alex Rider book by Anthony Horowitz Book 8 in a 10 book series next to be out unknown.
    Any recomendations for a book to read? I love fiction i read anything fast paced or anything just emersing

    I highly recommend Hunger Games and Catching Fire, the first two books available in the trilogy from Suzanne Collins. Amazing stories! I can't wait for the third (as yet unnamed) installment in the series. It should be out in fall of 2010.
