I read a lot, everything from Win95 FOR DUMMIES (grin) to Larry McMurtry's LONESOME DOVE (1985) to Columbian author & Nobel Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez's ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE (1967), the latter of which is a rare & fascinating novel about 6 generations of family history in the mythical town of Macondo.

Some of my all time favorite books are LEAVING CHEYENNE by Larry McMurtry (1963); THE JOURNALS OF LEWIS AND CLARK from the 1806 expedition; MILDRED PIERCE by James M. Cain; THE OREGON TRAIL by Francis Parkman (1847); THE BIG SKY by A.B. Guthrie (1952); DEMIAN by the noted German author Herman Hesse (1965); the 18th century French classic LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES by Choderlos De Laclos (1782); THE DECAMERON by Giovanni Boccaccio (c1350); The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1925); THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV by Fyodor Dostoevsky; TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD by Harper Lee; MOBY DICK by Herman Melville; FRANNY & ZOOEY by J. D. Salinger; THE CATCHER IN THE RYE (1945) by J. D. Salinger; THE PRAIRIE by James Fenimore Cooper; A FOOL'S ERRAND, a novel of the South during Reconstruction, by Albion W. Tourgee (1879); GONE WITH THE WIND by Margaret Mitchell (1936); CALL IT SLEEP, a novel of early social significance, by Henry Roth (1934); "POOR NO MORE" (1959) by Robert Ruark; the *classic*A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN by Betty Smith (1943); OUT OF AFRICA (1937), and EHRENGARD (1963) by Isak Dinesen, and many of Doris Lessing's novels, such as THE GOLDEN NOTEBOOK.

And, yes, a copy of every one of these books is in my personal library. I collect as well as read.
