The Broke & The Bookish, I didn't want to be all weird and stalkery naming bloggers lol. So here are my Top 10 (Author) Bookish People I'd Like to Meet (Alive or Dead-but not Zombie Dead):
1. JK Rowling --uh, duh. :) I could listen to her talk about Hogwarts & Harry Potter all day. I'd also like to hear how she's dealing with the huge amount of fame she came into so quickly.
Twitter and he's really funny and interesting. Plus he has really cool hair. (Pic from his twitter here)
3. Ann M Martin --another duh, for me anyway. We could discuss all the inaccuracies in the BSC books and whether Claudia was actually color-blind and where she really sees the BSC members now.
4. John Steinbeck --I kind of surprised myself with this one, but after my Summer of Steinbeck, I would really love to talk with him and hear more stories about Monterey and just anything really.
5. VC Andrews --the queen of incestual (I think I just made up that word, but oh well) romances, even 26 years after her death. I wonder how she would feel about that, knowing these people are cashing in on her name still and if she really intended to write every single book about a brother and sister hooking up in an attic lol.
Strangers in Paradise is one of my very favorite graphic novels and I would looooove to discuss Katchoo and Francine with him. I'm also currently reading Echo and have Rachel Rising on my to-buy, plus he's done stuff with Runaways, Fables, and Buffy so Terry Moore is one of my favorite authors too, I guess! :)
7. Piers Anthony --As the creator of Xanth, I'm sure he is a super creative guy and lots of fun to be around (once you get past all the puns lol). I've read his bios and he seems like a genuinely nice guy too.
8. Christopher Pike --I would like to watch Disney movies with him. I think he would enjoy that lol. No one likes to be scared all the time, right?
9. Maurice Sendak --Wouldn't it be the best thing ever to have Sendak read you a bedtime story? I think so.
10.Haruki Murakami --I would ask him all the unanswered questions I still have after reading 1Q84 nearly 4 months ago!
