Guilty pleasures

Alright, readers, 'fess up: which authors do you read for pure enjoyment with no expectation of enlightenment? These may fit the designation "Beach Book."

I'll admit to early Tom Clancy, almost anything Clive Cussler writes (with or without co-authors), Louis L'Amour, Robert Ludlum (the real one, not the ghostwritten ones that have appeared after his death) and Alistair MacLean.

Both Jonathan and Faye Kellerman, James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, James Michener and a few others that I can't think of at the moment.

My all time favorite author was Irving Wallace, but I've read all his books and there won't be any more.
I read for pleasure and relaxation.
