I love reading and have a huge collection of very good books, yes in paper, and of course the e-versions too. My genre varies ... although philosophy, classics, sci-fi and romance indulge me; anything with an interesting blurb on the back-cover doesn't stand a chance. I read not only the established writers, Jane Austen, for instance but also follow the imaginative minds on fan-fiction and enjoy them a lot. So thanks to all of those putting in the effort to satisfy my appetite.
Yes, Jane Austen still is my beloved and favorite author of all times and I like to share the other authors I thoroughly enjoyed reading since childhood. Here are they, not in any particular order: Dickens, Carroll, Christie, Rowling, Hess, Bach, Clancy, Crichton, Brown, Isherwood, Tzu, Tolkien, Coelho, Quinn, and so on and so forth.
If there is one thing I can't stand when reading is the usage of simple words that people think are interchangeable. Believe me, these are not typos.
Here are those fun words--
there for their
your for you're
were for we're
to for two or too
toe for tow
know for no or even now.
Oh yes, I've seen them all. It's just that I can't figure how people don't know the differences between such simple words. Heck! they write 10's of chapters and yet can't differentiate??!! It bewilders me to the power of infinity!! THESE ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE ... IN ANY LINGO!!
Well, what do I do about it? I ROFL... seriously, I let go. I'm not an English professor to get hyperventilated over such trivial stuff!! I simply enjoy these so much!! It's just too hilarious to pass... and like my beloved heroine, I dearly love to laugh :)
Anyway, that's me... Mad About Austen... Yes, Austen as in Jane Austen.
