My favorite author was Carolyn Haywood. I read all the Betsy and Star books, I could find.

I loved reading Walter Farley's and Marguerite Henry's horse books when I was young. Later I loved reading Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan books. I also enjoyed Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. There were a variety of horror authors I read in high school and as a young adult like Anne Rice, Stephen King and Clive Barker. 

I enjoyed the older authors like Poe, Le Fanu, Doyle, Tom Hardy, Brontes.

 I didn't read much.  Wasn't allowed to watch tv so wonder what I did ;)   I do remember reading some books I loved in jr high and high school and they were "Born Free", "Gone with the Wind" and "The Thorn Birds"

I'm another horse lover like LEK19 and read Walter Farley,I think I have all the Black Stallion Series and the Island Stallion,and Margurite Henry. I don't know how many time I read Misty OF Chincoteague or Stormy and King of The Wind,Born To TRot. Anything that had to do with horses or other animals I read it.  And I also loved Louisa May Alcott and Laura Lee Hope(She wote the Bobbsey Twin books.)  

I've been an avid reader since forever.lol

I hated reading when I was younger. I think that's why I'm making up for all those years. Love, love, love books! I wish J. K. Rowling was around back then.

 I didn't read at all back then! I think I read a book called "That was then, this is now", good book! They talked about drugs, playing spin the bottle, etc.

I don't remember having a favorite back then.  Not till my teen years, at least, when I started reading Stephen King.
