    I enjoy reading a lot of different authors, but my all time favorite is Mark Twain. I've read his books over and over and I still enjoy them as much as the first time I read them.

    Lately, I've been intrigued with the novels written by Lisa See. I've read "Snowflower and the Secret Fan" and "Shanghai Sisters." I'm not one to be drawn to novels, except when there is some historical information presented in the telling of the stories. This is the case for Lisa See's books. I learned a lot about China of yesterday, as well as some beliefs and customs that are present even in present day China and in many cases in the U.S. with Chinese who have moved here. I'll be reading all of Lisa See's novels and searching for similar authors so I can learn about different cultures and countries. Not every book would necessarily be about other countries, but as I said I aim to learn something when I read. None of those mushy romance novels for me:)

    I would say O Henry. I am a BIG fan of his works. I like his unexpected out-of-nowhere twists that keeps me chuckling at the end of a story. And they are really witty as well.

    Author: Harper Lee....brilliance with a brevity of words.  Poet....Tennyson...Ulysses is beautiful and powerful and everything an epic poem should be.

    I love e.e. cummings, the way he stood out from his peers. I just love his poetry in general.

    Emily Bronte, I feel like I had already read her poems when I discovered them, they seemed so familiar,
