Which are your favourite books/writers? How did they move you?
Well, i like a wide variety of writers and genres - from Maurice Druon and Gore Vidal to Terry Pratchett and Dan Simmons. It is a pleasure for me to understand and feel an idea born in someone else's mind as if it's my own. From the historical accuracy and greatness of Druon, Vidal and others to the pun-dressed philosophy of Pratchett and Gaiman, reading is the first - and absolutely necessary - step to good writing and good living. :)
