From Writers Pick Their Favorite Books


  1. What a fantastic idea for a book! I'd love to see who my favorite writers' favorite writers are. If they don't know good books, who would?

  2. It really is an interesting little book in a lot of ways. I'm a "numbers person," who makes his living dealing with numbers all day long so it appeals to me. The author tabulated the responses of 125 famous authors and came up with all kinds of Top 10 century, genre, etc. It's a fun browse.
