I love great stories that make me run a gambit of emotions from tears to rolling laughter. Pat Conroy moved me with Beach Music and his prose is lyrical. Jennifer Weiner is pure (and somewhat irreverent) entertainment and Jodi Picoult makes me look at controversial issues with a human perspective. My most recent read was Dean Koontz' "Odd Apocalypse" which I thought was the best since the first. Books take me away and let my mind go to places I will never see, wear clothes I will never buy and experience emotions removed from the confines of a simple life. I love books and for the first time in my life I can join a book club.
