- How did you come across your favorite author(s)? Recommended by a friend? Stumbled across at a bookstore? A book given to you as a gift?
- Was it love at first sight? Or did the love affair evolve over a long acquaintance?
Most of my favorites I discovered myself by stumbling across the book at a bookstore or library. I do recall my best friend handing me "Nine Princes in Amber" by Roger Zelazny and telling me "You have to read this!" She was so right - it remains one of my favorites. The later books in the series are not as good as the first 5, and it pains me every time I remember that he passed away so there is no chance of future books from him.
