I too love David Sedaris also an obscure British writer named Penelope Evans, she is amazing (but do not think any
of her books are yet K-ava) my all time favorite is Margaret Atwood, who I have not seen mentioned. I just downloaded
Moral Disorder which will be the 11th or 12th book of hers I have read.

I love David Sedaris. His book Naked inspired me to go to a nudist club. I figured if he could do it, so could I. And it was fun, as he described. I've had several nude beach/club experiences since that first time and would recommend them all.

Unfortunately, the book is not in Kindle edition but here is a link to the print version:

har har :) okay okay, I just meant that my list including *some* dead folks therefore, if one didn't count dead folks then it would be shorter. Obviously, no new stuff coming from Jane Austen.
Jane Austen's dead? Omigosh!

LOL!

They are the only ones I will rush out and buy the day they are released. Now what I am a KINDLE owner I can skip the "rush out" part. YIPPEE!
Too bad I bought The Lucky One at full price just 2 weeks before I got my Kindle.

I'm spoiled, now. I just don't buy pbooks any more.
Many of my pbook favorites are not available for Kindle yet. A prime example are the wonderful Patrick O'Brian nautical fiction series which are well worth rereading. I would buy them again in a heartbeat for my Kindle even though i have them in paper.

Cush, you've listed several of my favorite authors. In fact, I discovered and read ALL of Michael Connelly's books on my Palm T/X. I'm trying to resist the Lee Childs, which is hard as I do re-read them. At least most of those have the series order in the title, one of my wishes for all series books. Thanks for the recommendation of Scalzi, I wasn't familiar with his work!

I have lots of favorite male authors, too. I'm just heavily into a chick lit phase right now.

For laughs, I read anything by Dave Barry and Jack Handy.

Geez, in following the posts I've noticed something rather interesting.  SO many people shared the same favorite authors that I do.  I never thought that the authors I liked were that popular or anything.  I mean, I personally, LOVED them...but they always seemed to be easily passed by in the bookstores.  A lot of the people would just look at me funny and say "who?". :p

I just think it's pretty funny...

I love any of David Webster's Honor Harrington series. Same for CE Murphy's "Negotiator" and "Joanne Walker" series. Laurell Hamilton's "Anita Blake" series. Christine Feehan's "Predator" series. Any of Suzanne Brockman's Seal Team 10 books. George RR Martin's beautifully intricate "Song of Ice and Fire" books. Calvin & Hobbs. Kinsey Millhone books by Sue Grafton. Jodi Picoult. Lillith Saintcrow. Anne Lamont. Peanuts. Dilbert.

My want list includes
Patricia Briggs (Mercy Thompson series)
JD Robb (In Death series)
James Lee Burke
Michael Connelly
Lee Child
John Scalzi

Best book-to-TV Adaption is the Horatio Hornblower movie series by A & E featuring Ioan Gruffudd. I also love the Patrick O'Brien books & the big screen "Master & Commander" movie with Russel Crowe.

Looking forward to learning about more books & authors, thanks for all the posts here!

What is the first Greg Iles book that you recommend? It seems many of his books are on Kindle, several at $6.39.

Hey there Vampyre!

I'm starting the Terry Goodkind series ('Sword of Truth') myself. It's very long, but I'm actually enjoying it. I would never imagine myself reading his stuff, and not because of the genre. Though like many people here, the Kindle has openned me to A LOT of authors that I never thought of. I'm only on his first book and would love to immediately start on the rest, but alas, the first book is the only book that is Kindle-ized...grrr. The paperbacks are like +800 pages too.

But is the "Chain of Fire" a completely different series than the 'Sword of Truth' series? In checking out his website, it seems that it's all just one long series. Like I said, I just started the series (only up to chapter 6) and been reading Michael Connelly's "Brass Verdict" (another author I just picked up on my Kindle) at the same time.
