I'll read just about anything that can grab and hold my attention and I do accept materials from publishers and authors. 

I have a small collection of autographed copies of favorites. However, many of my favorite authors passed on before I was born. 

I have an odd relationship with classics. I'm more likely to read them and place them at the top of my favorite generes list and then never read them again. Unless, of course, they come up as a subject of a challenge I'm involved in. I've pondered the reasoning behind my actions and the only thing I can come up with is perhaps, I read classics more as a rhythmic creative work than a natural one. Here are my top picks for author by genres.

All the words that I utter,
And all the words that I write,
Must spread out their wings untiring,
And never rest in their flight,
Till they come where your sad, sad heart is,
And sing to you in the night,
Beyond where the waters are moving,
Storm-darken’d or starry bright. 
William Butler Yeats
