  1. If I'm honest my Dad got me reading Library books at a very early age, and we used to go to Eccles, and Hope Libraries on a regular basis, but I think the writer who really caught my imagination was a sci-fi writer called Harry Harrison, and his Stainless Steel Rat books. That's when I discovered reading can be fun. They were trash novels, but caught my 12 year old imagination, and I read the lot, I then started to read more "Serious Sci-Fi", Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, etc., and found them too high-brow. I discovered Pratchett, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez about the same time, and that really screwed my mentality. I had weird dreams while reading Tom Holt, and I have had endless laughter, and one argument with a Saffa (can we call them Boers these days? She certainly was a Bore), over Tom Sharpe. I remember reading Phillip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" while I was still at school [Before Blade Runner], and thought it very existentialist, rather than Sci-Fi, I still do, I read it about every 5-8 years. The only crime books I ever read have been Patricia Cornwell, when (Ironically) I had to do a month at HM Pleasure in 1997, and now I am reading The Maltese Falcon (via the Library), which is good fun. I now read stuff that I like the synopsis of, I know that's not the way it works, it works for me. I have a Kindle, if purists want to carry around 30kg of books, feel free, most of my recent acquisitions have been via there, usually my history, or trash (as I call it) reading. Well let's start talking. I don't want to know who is your favourite author (Julia Donaldson - Gruffalo), or genre, just who made you read.
