I enjoy reading, and some of my favorite genres include Christian books and also mysteries and biographies. The classics from Europe are also good to read. Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and others wrote clean books, and the storylines are timeless. An author whose books I would like to read is Elizabeth Gaskell. Most people have heard of Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Jules Verne; however, people have not heard of lesser-known writers such as Elizabeth Gaskell from the same time frame. I recommend reading books that these lesser-known authors wrote. The book retailer Barnes & Noble has inexpensive editions of books from lesser-known authors of books that are now classics, and some editions are available for e-readers.
