Awww, that's a great list! We share some favorite authors. :-) I like Paulo Coelho and The Alchemist as well. And the German LHOP - that's hilarious.


Inspiring! What author should I start with... haha, I looove books, my reading list is too long already for this year! :-)


Hanna, I'd start with John Irving! I think you'll love him...

Frau Dietz

Oh gawd, now this is a challenge. Umm:

Italo Calvino ♥♥♥ (I think I would go so far as to say that "Difficult Loves" is my favourite book. I think)
Thomas Hardy (not just Tess but also some of his less well known ones - A Pair of Blue Eyes; Two on a Tower)
Haruki Murakami
Rohinton Mistry (mostly for "A Fine Balance")
Oscar Wilde
Tom Stoppard
Roald Dahl (for both his kids' books and his wonderfully, fabulously dark grown-up short stories)

...and then can I just also say "the dictionary" :) ...and then there are autobiographies by folk who have done and seen the most incredible things: David Attenborough, Frank Gardner, John Simpson...

I am going to check out the authors that I don't know on your list - brilliant - and then spend the rest of the day/weekend/year wondering who I've left off mine.
