1. Michael Crichton, 1942-2008
I was just talking to a student about this author today and I had the thought that I should really give him a try.
2. David Foster Wallace, 1962-2008
I walked past one of his books yesterday during a rare visit to Barnes and Noble yesterday and I wondered if I would like it. I will never know if I don't try him out.
3. Meg Cabot, 1967-
The Princess Diaries series, The Mediator series, Queen of Babble, others...and I've read none of them.
4. Frank Herbert, 1920-1986
That means I've never read a single Dune novel. How can I hold my head up as a librarian?
5. Agatha Christie, 1890-1976
I am fairly familiar with her characters because of the movies but I have never read one of her books.
6. Jack Kerouac, 1922-1969
I have wanted to read On the Road.
7. Diana Gabaldon, 1952-
The Outlander series intrigues me but the books are so.o.o long.
8. Amy Tan, 1952-
I think I have started but not finished one of her books. It is time to read one by this well-known author.
9. Veronica Rossi
Under the Never Sky is a series that I really intend to read but have never gotten around to them, yet.
10. Jo Nesbo, 1960-
A Norwegian author that my friends keep raving about. Where do I start?
Do you have an author that you really like that you think I should read? How about an author you think you should read?
