That’s pretty self-explanatory, isn’t it?
I browse a lot in the library, checking out the new book section, see what looks good, etc. That’s how I discovered Pratchett a few years back. Night Watch was in the new book rack, I read the back cover, said “hoo-boy, fun ride…” and checked it out. I haven’t whipped my way through all of his books yet, but there will come a time.
Douglas Adams - Been through all of the Hitchhiker-related books, as well as Dirk Gently. It started, of course with Hitchhiker, then I said, well, lessee - why not?
John le Carre - Started reading him in college, and just got hooked. Early on, I caught myself up, now I sit and wait for him to pop new ones out and grab them fresh off the rack.
Kinky Friedman** - The Kinkster.
**Christopher Moore **- Ok, I’ll be honest, I’m only right now starting Dirty Job, but in a few days, I’ll chalk him down too.
**Stephen Coonts **- Hey, I like a good war book too once in a while.
Tom Clancy - Ditto, only substitute “big” for “good”
Nelson DeMille** - Started when I saw The General’s Daughter, saw the book somewhere and thought it HAD to be better than the movie. it was, and I was off…
Lisa Scottoline - Lawyers you can like! (Sorry Bricker, we like you too…) Why has no one made any of these into movies?
I also just started the Harry Potter books, because…well, because I wondered. I’m halfway through the 3rd, so any week now, JK Rowling goes on the list.
There’s probably a couple others, but that’s a start. Anyone else do this? Find an author you like and just go running with them>
