My guest bedroom holds my Sci-Fi collection. Some stuff from childhood in there too.

I only buy books that I am likely to reread.

Authors include

Steve Alten

Bradbury

Jim Butcher

Alan Campbell

Orson Scott Card

Crichton

Colfer

Frank Herbert (And Herbert Jr.'s fan fiction)

Brian Jacques

Dean Koontz

Tolkien

Lovecraft

And more.

Jim Butcher is such a good author. Love the Dresden files to death.

I stopped like halfway through the series. I stopped right after he was kidnapped by Maeve. I gotta start that series again.

Cant say anything for fear of spoilers.

I just finished Crichton's Andromeda Strain which I thought was nice. I've read most books through Audible over the past five years or so, so I only get hardcopies of the selection out of that that I am most likely to refer back to. I don't really reread books ever, but I do leaf through them from time to time.

Andromeda Strain is one of my annual rereads.

I like to do that and The Hot Zone back-to-back right at the beginning of Summer.
