Hi. Just signed up last night. Am an avid reader of fiction and non-fiction (about 50-50), although don't clock up the sorts of numbers some do, about 40-50 per year, not least because I like reading other material too!

 

In fiction terms, my favourite author is Jane Austen, followed in no particular order by Patrick O'Brian, Charles Dickens, JL Carr, Donna Leon, Peter Ackroyd and Jasper Fforde amongst others. My non-fiction reading is fairly varied, but I suppose is dominated mostly by history (especially the long 18th century), science and travel literature, favourite writers being Simon Schama, Claire Tomalin, Jenny Uglow, Lisa Jardine, Alistair Cooke, Jonathan Raban and Jan Morris (amongst others!)

Welcome to BCF, Blencathra! Glad you joined us :motz:. I'm a big fan of Fforde and Leon as well.
