RE: The @yourtop3 January Contest - My Three Favourite Authors

in #yourtop39 months ago

Have not had time to prepare and enter this round, apologies in advance.

Typical reading most would remember, Gerald Durrell an author of my youth with animal stories filled with humour. Enid Blyton, Noddy Books, The Famous Five, The Secret Seven . Asterix still have all the books purchased 1970/80's.

JRR Tolkien was such a popular author with the Hobbit and Trilogy many have related to these being a favourite, yes I am one of the many who is addicted to the story.

New Trilogy perhaps to share and read with young generation.., my sons are enjoying these at the moment after reading Tolkien.
Philip Pullman -
Northern Lights
The Subtle Knife
The Amber Spyglass

Around the World in 80 days, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth - Jules Verne

WW11 - Many books and authors during late teens.
Alistair MacLean - The Guns of Navarone
P.R. Reid - Escape from Colditz
Eric Williams - The Wooden Horse
Life of Corrie ten Boom, written by her and John and Elizabeth Sherrill. - The Hiding Place
Douglas Bader - Fight for the Sky
Paul Brickhill - Reach for the Sky (About Douglas Bader)
Anne Frank - The Diary of a Young Girl

Inspirational - Business - Reading takes you through steps, every age there is a stage....
Jack Welch and Rhonda Byrne both excellent authors teaching through good reading tips to life and business.
Long Walk to Freedom - Nelson Mandela a classic obviously high on my list.

At the end of the day it would be difficult to say, have fun selecting, it's a roll the dice! Yes we grew up when there was no such thing as TV in South Africa we did a lot of reading.
