If I start to love certain authors, I will add their books to my collection, including those which may have been published a long time ago. Koji Suzuki is a Japanese who writes horror which were made into films either in Japanese (The Ring) which was then remade by Hollywood (The Ring). The books are futuristic and were never translated well on-screen.
Some other authors are John Grisham whom I read whether he writes all those legal thrillers like The Summons or some of those Americana he wrote on a lark like Skipping Christmas and Bleachers.
Then of course, people like Terry Pratchett whom my wife and I just couldn't get enough of. It is a shame he is diagnosed with Alzheimer and hope he will still be able to churn at least a few more books.
Again, I just love good book, like so many of you out there...
