Looking For Quacks In The Pavement

Literacy Meme, Belated

Well, it took me just about long enough to get to this, didn’t it? I’m going to use Mari’s version as my base, ’cause she based hers off of Lil’s rendition, and the idea is to keep adding on, so… yeah.

Oddly enough, I was able to add on, to the tune of two Stephen King books (I know, I’m as shocked as you are), one Russian literary work (by Solzhenitsyn, who I placed right after Dostoyevsky), and one other additional author because dammit, his stuff is among my favorite reading material of all time (Raymond E. Feist). That way whoever lifts my list will have just that much more material to work with. Cue maniacal laughter, here.

That said, I chose not to add Anne McCaffrey. That’s more work than I really want to go to at this point. Sorry. Anyway, let’s get on with the meme itself, shall we?

Using the list below, bold all the titles that you’ve read. If you’ve read other titles by the same author, add them under that author.

Delete nothing! Play along, and leave a comment to let me know you did so I can check out your list.

    Molly added Anne McCaffrey to her list, so…eventually the meme will come back around, only this time it’ll have 9,742 authors. And it’ll have too many characters for LJ to allow posting (which can only be to the good). *grin*
