Bookshelf

This is a list of my favorite books and authors.

There is a difference simply because not every favorite book  had an author who wrote anything else that would elevate themselves to a favorite author. I won’t put my favorite book by each favorite author, I will leave it to you to check out any author that intrigues you. But some cross-overs may appear anyway!

There is no particular order to my authors or books–I could spend days on deciding that order.

But my criteria is books that I reread, will read again, and feel sad that I ever lived without.  Some authors I have adored, but then grow out of six or seven books in. The authors I list here are ones that I will read anything they write, at any point that they write it. Some, like Shakespeare, could probably just be assumed to be on such a list (I put him on there anyway).

*some books I have not read since childhood. I absorbed Perry Mason during vacations at my grandparents. Trixie, Honey and Jim were some of my best friends, and I may have been the only one in 8th grade to check out Shakespeare’s Complete Works from the school library. But these books made an impression on my childish mind that I carry to this day.
