Who would you put on your list?


  1. I was stumped on U and X as well. Good call on John Irving. I forgot to list him.

  2. Wow, that's a long list and probably took a lot of thought.

  3. What a great idea. I am thinking this would make a great Sunday afternoon activity.

    I participated in a survey that our local library offered this week. I filled out a 5 page questionnaire about my reading preferences and authors I liked and they submitted a customized reading list for me. It was 5 pages long! My husband thought I was kooky as I sit surrounded by stacks of unread books, but pshaw! One of the first authors they recommended was in your A column - Isabelle Allende!! I have never read her at all. They recommended Daughter of Fortune. Have you read that?

    This Easter morning is so different without little ones to search their baskets. I truly miss the chocolate bunnies for breakfast! Well...some may have followed me home from the store this week. I know, I'm weak!

    Thanks for the ideas...

  4. Great list. I loved this meme, although I couldn't fill in all the letters.

  5. Great list! I forgot about Irving too, I had a hard time with the I's. He's a better pick for me than Ishiguro because I've read and enjoyed many of his books. I haven't heard of all your picks, looks like some interesting ones. I'm impressed you have a Q.

  6. I looked at my author list... and the library website to help me remember authors!

    Inside: You will love Isabel Allande. I loved Daughter of Fortune.

  7. OMG_ I forgot Juliet Marillier off my list, how cool is she..

    X - was my stumbling letter - I cant think of an author for that letter..

    Have a great reading week...
