So, to anyone out there who may be reading this, who is your favorite author and why?
I have many favorite authors so I will list my very first one: J. R. R. Tolkien. I was first introduced to him by my parents when I was very little. Each night somewhere in the fall or winter we would eat dinner, have baths, and gather in the living room to listen to the radio. It played both the B.B.C. version and The Minds Eye version of the book, ' The Hobbit' and also 'The Lord of the Rings' My brother and I would color while listening to the half hour long program before bed. I found it both scary and amazing and grew to LOVE it. The tradition has been to listen to it every winter as soon as snow flies. This is a tradition I am carrying on with my own children. This past winter, I added another favorite author to our tradition, C.S. Lewis. I found the cd's online and so now have a way to listen to 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' and now 'The Chronicles of Narnia' every winter.
