  1. I've just started reading the SHERLOCK HOLMES stories, by ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE, again.
  2. Hi vodkafan, and thank you! Well, my favourite Authors are: Charlotte Bronte; Emily Bronte; Wilkie Collins; and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (for the SHERLOCK HOLMES stories).
  3. I must admit that I haven't read REQUIEM FOR A WREN, yet; I'll have to try to find the time to read that one soon.
  4. Hi poppy, Well, I'd say that THE PIED PIPER is probably my favourite; and isn't he an excellent author!
  5. 1. JANE EYRE by Charlotte Bronte 2. THE WOMAN IN WHITE by Wilkie Collins 3. WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Emily Bronte
  6. At this stage, I would say that my favourite Authors are: Charlotte Bronte Emily Bronte Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Wilkie Collins Charles Dickens Neville Shute
  7. Actually: I've paused my reading on Arthur Conan Doyle's A STUDY IN SCARLET; mainly so that I can concentrate on Charlotte Bronte's SHIRLEY: I've gone back to the start of SHIRLEY, again, having got about a quarter of the way through it, in the first attempt, which in turn was a while ago; I'm finding it a little bit tedious at this stage, but I'm determined to persist with it this time, as I love the writing style of Charlotte Bronte; Has anyone else had this experience with SHIRLEY?!
  8. Thank you for the warm and lovely welcomes! It really is nice to be here.
  9. At the Moment I'm reading A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; and I'm also reading Shirley by Charlotte Bronte.
  10. A superb story indeed; I loved it!
  11. The Bronte Sisters were geniuses!
  12. I love the novels by the Bronte sisters! I've read JANE EYRE AND WUTHERING HEIGHTS; and now I'm reading SHIRLEY.
  13. Hello. My name's Douglas, and it's nice to be here on this discussion forum about books and reading.
