    Great question!  I like Ayn Rand who wrote intellectual novels and Sue Grafton who writes a series of mystery novels.

      Thank you for answering my question. I have been having problems to find some new good books and only read literature from the 18th and 19th century, but I will seriously check Ayn Rand out. Thanks!

    If I pick a favorite, I guess it would have to be Ernest Hemmingway.  I have read just about everything that "Papa Hemmingway" has written, and have immensely enjoyed each book.  I think it's because in each and every one of his books and short stories, I felt like I became a part of that story....I don't know if you can identify with that, but I find myself immersed in a good book for hours and I don't want to put it down.
