11. As mentioned, I'm a big fan of ASoIaF and I also enjoy GRRM's other books, although I've certainly not read them all. I enjoyed a lot of the NJO, although I have skipped some of the "side" novels upon reread. Favorite SW novels would be Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor and Tattooine Ghost, although Denning has disappointed me as of late. TTT stands out as some of the tightest novels in the EU, but I'm not a great fan of Mara. Zahn gets Han and Leia's characterization right on, and as might have been noticed around here, that matters to me. Other notable authors I like: Kurt Vonnegut, Phillip K Dick, Hubert Selby, Charles Bukowski. I reread To Kill a Mockingbird at least once a year. I was a big Harry Potter fan - I read it first and then I read it aloud to my kids when they were old enough. I also read a lot of YA fiction, to keep abreast of what my kids are reading. 12. I did not read a lot of comics as a kid. My mother didn't feel they were worthwhile reading, and therefore not a legitimate expense. I tried whenever possible to read Spiderman, which I had discovered on Electric Company on PBS. I married a comic reader, and we have his collection. I let my kids read comics, and they also love Spiderman - and were faithful readers of The Ultimate Spiderman for several years. I'm also a fan of Bone and Saga (thanks Coop). I love graphic novels - Blankets and Persepolis stand out in my mind at the moment. eta. As for SW comics, I've read some of the old Marvel stuff, which is distinctly weird and delightful at the same time. I prefer the Dark Horse stuff and I loved DE in particular. I started reading Star Wood, but gave up when it became clear they didn't know what to do with Han. Still baffling to me.
