109 Authors

I have got a bit tired of having a number of scrawly bits of paper in my bag on which I have written authors to look for in the library. These may be people whose books I have already enjoyed,  books recommended by bloggers or books recommended through the course I  took in August 2017 called How to Read a Novel. So I have a definitive list, roughly alphabetical, to take with me in my library/ book shop/ charity shop excursions. Actually there are only 93 names on the list, I would love you to come up with seven more to make it up to the 100.

Thanks to you lovely lot recommending more authors the list is now 109 strong.

I shall place a ♥ whenever I read  a book by an author followed by a date , so if you want to see which book and a very quick review you will be able to look either at the Books Month post or the page on books.
