Camera-Critters #147

What's your favorite book or author?
I've got too many to mention! I LOVE Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver. I also enjoy James Patterson's Women's Murder Club Mysteries. I love a good mystery, especially legal mysteries, such as those by John Grisham.

I want to start learning more about my Camera-Critters friends.
So, each week, I'll ask you a question.
If you want to answer, leave it in the comments.
If you don't feel like answering, that's O.K. too. :-)
We've got a great group of people here.
So, I thought it would be fun if we got to know each other more.

Thanks for organising this really cool meme.
My favourite author is Kipling, but in truth I don't read books much. I prefer poetry - again Kipling, but Ogden Nash, Rod McKuen and a million others also.

Have a good week, Boonie

I like James Patterson's mysteries too, and John Grisham.... I am currently reading THE BELLS by Richard Harvell: good one. [not a mystery].
thanks for hosting CC :-)

What tough choice here! I have to say my favorite book has to be Watership Down by Richard Adams. I'm a huge fan of almost all of Steinbeck's work, and lately Jared Diamond's analysis of why societies succeed or fail has my attention. That just the tip of the iceberg! Thanks for such a cool Meme..I really look forward to contributing each week!

I prefer non fiction about real people and events. Don't really have a favorite.

ladyfi said...

Difficult to choose a favourite book, but recently I read Room by Emma Donoghue - wow! Brilliant!

I can also highly recommend The Help by Kathryn Stockett and The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.

I have lots of favourite books and authors, but my favourite from when I was a little girl was The Secret Garden and I have a few different copies of it.

Tammy said...

Bertrice Small! LOVE historical romance books and she writes the best ones.

Lauren said...

I'm not sure if I have an all time favorite author, but I'm a huge fan of Douglas Adams, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Lee Child. Kind of a random selection, I suppose.

Kay L. Davies said...

I love mysteries, too. I almost always have a mystery on the go. But my all-time favorite book has to be "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. I read it once every two or three years, and it never fails to make me laugh. I'm also inordinately fond of Rudyard Kipling. Go figure!

Gregory Macguire...all of his Adult Fantasy/Classics turned to 'human form' such as the Wicked Witch and Cinderella, etc.

As a forensic nurse for 21 years,I like anything related to forensics. I, to, enjoy any of James Patterson's books and I like the Women's Murder Club series,especially because they are situated in my home, San Francisco. I also like Jeffrey Deaver! On the non forenic side, I like Nicolas Sparks, Barbara Kingsolver and Maeve Binchey, to name a few.

I like Margaret Atwood, Alexander McCall Smith, Oscar Wilde. I enjoy most of the books I read but had to give up on No and Me and am struggling with E.M. Forster's 'Howard's End':-/

Harper Lee's To kill a Mockingbird has a little of everything in it .skI like lots of books though

Martha in PA said...

Don't know that I have a favorite, and I really don't make the time to read much these days. I always liked John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell, and for light reading, Danielle Steele. I've got a couple books by Jodi Picoult laying around to read too.... now I just have to make it a priority or get myself an e-reader!

Shelley Munro said...

I'm a writer and published in the romance genre. I read lots of romances and mysteries. It really is difficult to pick a favorite. I could give you a long list, though :)

Cathy said...

I don't really have a favourite book or author - will read anything thats there to be read. My mother would always complain about me having a nose in a book whenever there were things to be done. Even now would rather read than do housework - mind you who wouldn't lol

This is one of my favorite memes -- and this is only my second week here :-) Thank you for organizing it!

As far as authors -- I like mysteries also although I tend towards cozies and historical mysteries. I love Rita Mae Brown's work for example. I also like young adult books and historical fiction, etc. I read a lot :-)

lisaschaos said...

I like the authors you mentioned too, but my favorite author ever is Dean Koontz. :)

Kay said...

I forgot to answer your question! I, too. love Barbara Kingsolver's Prodigal Summer--or anything by her. The Poisonwood Bible may be my favorite.
I enjoy nonfiction books written by birders: Kingbird Highway:The Biggest Year in the Life of an Extreme Birder, by Kenn Kaufman, is a favorite, and also The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature, and Fowl Obsession, by Mark Obmascik. I highly recommend both of them. The latter has been made into a movie that will be released later this year starring Owen Wilson, Steve Martin, Jack Black and some other big names. It should be fun.

I don't have favorite authors. I read books and novels that I want and need to read :)

Gattina said...

It changes all the time. I don't really have a favorite author.

I didn't answer this last week because I did not do Camera Critter Saturday, my life had been in a crisis recently :(. But I wanted to answer because I love to read. My all time favorite author is James Michner. I also loved Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver and Poisonwood Bible is one of my all time favorite books but her other books have been a bust. The Clan of the Cave Bear series is wonderful also. Everything by John Grisham is good.
