Here are some of my favorites:
Maeve Binchey, I think I've read almost every one of her books, I was so sad when she passed a way this year. I wish more of her books had been made into movies, you may remember Circle of Friends.
Terry Brooks, told you I was eclectic. I was introduced to Fantasy books about 10 years ago and just love the Shannara series.
Since I bought my Kobo last year I am reading so much more and loving not having to carry a big book around with me. If you have a favorite author I'd love to hear about them, I'm always looking for something to read.
