Book Blogger Hop and Question of the Week

The book blogger hop is a weekly event usually hosted by Crazy-For-Books, but this weekend it’s being hosted by Lori’s Reading Corner. This is such a great way to meet like minded bloggers and revel in our mutual love of books.

This week’s question is:
“Who is the one author that you are dying to meet?”

It seems like all the authors I would die to meet are already dead. This is the unfortunate result of having my head buried in the classics for too long. Fortunately, I can still dream of meeting Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I remember reading One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in The Time of Cholera back to back, over a weekend many years ago and it was something of a revelation.
I would also love to meet Jhumpa Lahiri because I love the simplicity of her prose and the gentleness of her characters.


  1. From classics, I would love to meet Charles Dickens. But I haven't tried Jhumpa Lahiri before. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Good choice here. One of the best Lahiri writes so well.

  3. Good Morning! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Love your blog title...very original. Good job you didn't choose a dead author as I bet they don't make for good conversation. :) Now following.

  4. Kero I'd love to meet Charles Dickens too. Do try Jhumpa Lahiri, I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

    Mystica Thanks, Lahiri does write beautifully.

  7. That's such a hard question to answer. There are so many authors of classics that I'd love to meet. But if I can only choose one, I'd like to meet Lewis Carroll. He had to have one wild imagination.

    Thanks for stopping by the Write Game and leaving a comment. Hope you'll stop in again.

  8. I've heard so much about 100 Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera and it's all been good. I really ought to add them to my wishlist! Good choice!!

    Thanks for visit and the follow!
