it varies

I read everything I can get my hands on
I am a particular fan of Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway
but I love the Restoration Poets - Alexander Pope, John Milton
I enjoy Margaret Atwood and Alice Munroe
Madeline L'Engle speaks to me
and Margaret Mead always engages
Chinua Achebe and Salmon Rushdie are regulars
and of course I read Michener for his long and vivid descriptions

currently, I am on a course of Fred Bodsworth but I am moving into a Farley Mowat stage
I love to re-read all the books on my shelf and then discover, in a dusty bookstore, a new author whose works I have never seen before
