Favourite Book as a child

The Human Comedy, by William Saroyan. "Lionel didn't read books and he hadn't come to the public library to borrow one. He just liked to see them-the thousands of them. He pointed out a whole row of shelved books to his friend and then whispered, 'All of these-and these. And these. Here's a red one. All these. There's a green one. All these.' "

Favourite Book as an adult

The Human Comedy, by William Saroyan. " 'Well,' [the old librarian] said at last, 'perhaps it's just as well that you can't read, I can. I've been reading books for the past sixty years, and I can't see as how it's made any great difference.' "

Favourite author/s

Ursula K. Le Guin

Classic book you want to read but haven't yet

Too many to contemplate.

Best excuse for not reading a classic book

Just when you think you're finally going to have the time to read a classic book, they publish a must-read new one!

Introduction

A long-ago English Major in college, still cramming before that final Final Exam!
