Relax!  Grab a Book!

"So here's this meme: You take my list. Cross off those authors that are not on your bookshelf, add as many as you need to to bring it up to 10. Got it? Here's my go at it..."

glass_diva's list:

J.R.R. Tolkien
Neal Stephenson
Neil Gaiman
Stephen Brust
Haruki Murakami
Umberto Eco
Clive Barker
Irvine Welsh
Jonathan Lethem
Tibor Fischer


pinkfish's list:

Umberto Eco
Milan Kundera
Frederick Dürrenmatt
Diane Wakoski
Tom of Finland
Clayton Christensen
Geoff Pullum
Ralf König
William Carlos Williams
Phillip K. Dick

Damn you, pinkfish, you trying to keep me from adding my own authors? I might have some William Carlos Williams in an anthology, but I'm leaving him there since I'm not sure he counts. And the book club chose not to read the Philip K. Dick selection a few months ago. Thence:

My list:

Frederick Dürrenmatt
Diane Wakoski
Tom of Finland
Clayton Christensen
Geoff Pullum
Ralf König
William Carlos Williams
Phillip K. Dick
Chinua Achebe
Eddy L. Harris

I bet I could come up with a list of 10 of my own that aren't on your shelves, though. ;)
Relax!  Grab a Book!

Book Meme

That last post was pretty lame, since I couldn't replace much from pinkfish's list. So, I've decided to start anew with a list of my own.

Take the following list of 10 authors that can be found on my bookshelves. Cross out any that are also on your bookshelves. Then add in other authors that can be found on your shelves until you have 10 authors in your list. Post your results either here or in your own journal. (If you post them on your journal, please let me know, as I am curious in seeing your lists.)

My list:

Chinua Achebe
Eddy L. Harris
Pablo Neruda
Gregory Maguire
Mario Vargas Llosa
Eric S. Raymond
Pearl S. Buck
Willa Cather
Jerzy Kosinski
Douglas R. Hofstadter
