Harper Lee – To Kill a Mockingbird

          I can’t even tell you how much I love this book.  My absolute favorite book of all time.

Charlaine Harris – The Southern Vampire Series

          If you’ve only seen the HBO series then you’re really missing out.  Please, do yourself a favor and read these.  The voice is fantastic.

William Goldman – The Princess Bride

          Again, if you only know the movie, you’ve done yourself a disservice.  Please hie yourself to a book sellers immediately.

Bill Bryson – his travelogues, especially A Walk in the Woods

          I’ve read everything he’s written and I often find myself laughing out loud.  A must read.

Larry McMurtry – Lonesome Dove

          This Pulitzer Prize winner is so much more than a western.  I fell so in love with Gus McCrae.

Christopher Moore – Lamb, You Suck, A Dirty Job, so many more

          Absolutely hysterical and irreverent
