I'm not ready to tackle the new challenge. I'm afraid I need to put on my thinking cap and today is kinda crazy so look for that later in the week. Instead I wanted to answer a question Deniz asked on friday.
"Which authors would you desperately need on a deserted island?"
Well, I chose to answer this in two ways. The first, which authors would I want there with me. Yes I know this means it wouldn't exactly be a deserted island but I thought it would be fun. Two, the published works of which authors would you like to have with you on a deserted island. So...
1. Charlotte Bronte, Jolene Perry, Diana Gabaldon (I'd be too scared to actually talk to her though), Anton Chekhov, Leo Tolstoy, Terry Pratchett, Laura Ingles Wilder, Anne Tyler.
2. Deanna Raybourne, Diana Gabaldon, Jolene Perry, J.K. Rowling, (can't wait until her new book comes out so I can see if it holds up), Thosmas Costain, Anne Tyler, Terry Pratchett, Charlotte Bronte (mostly Jane Eyre though her other books are good) Jane Austin (of course).
That's what I came up with off the top of my head. I'm sure I'd change it a little if I let it roll around a bit. There's a lot of crossover and if I didn't put someone on both lists it's not because I thought they, or their books, were horrible, it's just, well, it is a deserted island and I had no idea how big it was and didn't want to sink it under the weight of authors or books. I mean Terry Pratchett alone has over 30 books. Hmmm, I wonder if this island has wifi and I can get them all kindle.
Who would you want?
