My reading habits swing from children’s literature and young adult to classics and nonfiction, with the occasional novel. Let me know of any good beginner graphic novels and I’ll try something new. My all-time favorite author is Frank Herbert, pulling slightly ahead of Jane Austen, along with Laura Ingalls Wilder, Barbara Kingsolver, Ursula K. Le Guin, Helen Hooven Santmyer, and Mary Stewart. Quirky investigators like Malcolm Gladwell are quickly making a place in my heart.

She's known for "The Lottery", but Jackson wrote excellently all sorts of other things, too. The short stories are still my favorite, chilling before you've realized you were chilly. [Raissa]

Beatrix Potter has the zaniest escapes (attacking rabbits!), the best names (Hunca Munca!), and kids love hearing these stories read aloud. I am in love with this volume - it includes all her stories! [Raissa]
