You mean which writers I think are great? That is a hard question =) Most of the books I've read I read in my childhood, and I am not able to judge them. I can pick great books out of what I have been reading recently, and I can just list the authors of those books as "great" because they made such well written novels. For example I can praise Margaret Mitchell for her "Gone with the Wind", John Steinbeck for his "The Grapes of Wrath", Harper Lee for her "To Kill a Mockingbird". That is if we talk about serious literature =) I would also praise Rowling for Harry Potter series and Tolkien for all his Middle Earth books.

But that is kinda a weird way of judging writers, isn't it? =) Going from only one good book (or a series of books) and ignoring the rest of their legacy. There are very few writes I have read enough to be sure how I feel about them. For example I think Agatha Christie is a great crime novel writer and a good writer in general. Terry Pratchett is a talented comedy and satire writer.

You see why I said it is a hard question. right? =) I can't just give you a list, I don't have one.

I see.
But a single book is enough to make a lasting felling in our heart Grin
So, reading one such book is enough Grin

Are you into "Happily ever after" stories? Grin

Yeah, one book is enough to be able to feel good about a writer =) But I don't think it's enough to give proper judgement for writer's talent =)

I don't have preference for book endings. I'm fine with sad ends and happy ends. What about you, which do you like better? =)

I like happy endings. As writing is an art, at least I would want it to present something positive Grin
Do you think that's weird?

Nope, I don't think it's weird =) Would you tell me who are your favorite writers?

damn that youtube x(
why does it block vids in certain regions anyway?

Legal issues, probably. Copyright laws work differently in different countries. For example Germany has stricter rules than US and so a lot of videos with copyright music that you can ply in the US will be muted for German users.

What are you even talking about :D Youtube isn't a good place to watch cartoons anyway, the quality isn't great and the audio is out of sync. Just watch it in some other site that doesn't care about copyright as much.
