Favorite Authors - Favorite Books

As autumn approaches and the weather here in the northwest of the U.S. begins to cool, I start to look forward to spending my evenings at home reading. Reading is a very peaceful activity for me, yet it also educates me, excites me and opens me up to new worlds.

As this 'reading season' approaches I would love to hear about your favorite books and authors. A few of my favorite authors and favorite books are:

Margaret Atwood - Oryx and Crake
Barbara Kingsolver - The Poisonwood Bible
Jonathan Safran Foer - Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Denis Johnson - Jesus' Son

I wonder what others on Pulse Wire on reading.

In friendship,

Jenna Kellam

I love...

Hi Jenna,

I love Chuck Palahniuk too! And David Sedaris makes me laugh out loud, because of that I cannot read his books on the bus anymore.

I would love to hear the favorite books or authors of others in the PulseWire community.
